Testimonials from other Legal Professionals

  • “Holly’s client service and general level of service and level of sophistication are very strong. Holly is a gentle representative, but do not be fooled by this as she is a very good advocate and is very knowledgeable. She represents her cases well.”
  • “Holly is great. She is a good example of one of the younger members that Ryan and Max have been working with. I led her on a case and she’s very good. She’s very willing to learn and is developing her practice very well, and she is very good with clients. This is what strikes me about that firm; they’re very mindful of their clients and if a client is worried or unsettled, they know they can contact their solicitors and speak to them. She went on maternity leave a while and has slotted back in again.”
  • “Holly is competent and personable, and she’s good with clients. I think she’s compassionate and you’ve got to remember that side of the job when dealing with family work.”
  • “I’ve done a couple of cases with Holly, some of which were quite complicated and messy, but she is very efficient. She is very gracious and she deals with things in a sensible and conciliatory way. She is very organised and she doesn’t miss a deadline. I think they’re all committed and hardworking and she falls into that category; she’s easy to get on with and she is someone who gets it done.”
