Client testimonials

"I was facing the prospect of losing everything I had worked so hard for which was awful, I was at breaking point. Mitchell not only was a very good lawyer negotiating my financial security, he was also helpful, compassionate and caring. I felt like a human being and not just a number."

Annette Kontoleon

"We have been associated with Small Myer Hughes for a number of years now and their service, advice and professionalism are outstanding. Jarad and his team have enabled us to focus on the day to day operations of bodies corporate and we know that we can rely on SMH to assist with the more diverse and complicated issues that confront us on a regular basis. Some of these issues have ranged from the collection of outstanding levies to that of advice regarding the establishment of Principal bodies corporate and large staged developments. With legislation constantly changing it is difficult to keep up and you need a firm which you can rely upon. If you are looking for energetic professional people, reliable communication and precise solid advice you can’t go past Small Myer Hughes."

Michael Young - AM Strata

"Col has been my go to lawyer for more than 20 years. He and his team have looked after many property developments for me over the years and they always do a great job helping me get through each development. I like that I can call any member of the team and get the legal advice I need at the time. I guess you could say that our relationship is more like a partnership than client and solicitor. "

Robert, Property Developer

"Dear David, Just a short note to express mine and Elly's thanks to you and Michelle for all your efforts in our battle with the ATO. From our first meeting to our successful conclusion you guys were awesome not only in your accurate and sound advice but also in all communications. Just dealing with David with this most concerning situation, he made Elly and I feel straight away that we were in very good and professional hands (a great comfort). We have no hesitation in recommending SMH to others. Our warmest thanks. "
