Principal Lawyer

Probably the most responsive lawyer out there in Sydney! John and Meredith did a stellar job in helping me settle a prolonged building defects case in the most cost-effective way. What a relief for me! John is also very well connected in the building industry and he was able to help me connect with relevant experts for my matter. Thank you very much John and Meredith, I would recommend Contracts Specialist to anyone looking for good legal service.
