Client testimonials

"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. "

Kevin & Elly

"Michael is the consummate professional and he has the ability of getting straight to the issue, no matter how complex. He achieves timely results and has an in depth knowledge of the law which extends well beyond family law. Michael is compassionate and always has time to talk through an issue even when he is overseas or away on holidays he will respond to his clients. I can not recommend him highly enough to anyone who needs a man of probity who knows his law and puts his client first."

Dr Jacqueline Kerr

"I have worked with Jared Maher on various matters over the past few years. I have found SMH to be extremely efficient in all the dealings we have had with them. Jared’s experience in BSA and building defects issues is excellent and we have found the issues resolved in a timely manner. I have no hesitation in recommending this firm to any prospective clients."
