I contacted Snedden Hall & Gallop Lawyers for advice on an employment contract and I was more than impressed with the professionalism and depth of advice received from Laura Wood who handled my inquiry. From the initial point of contact, all communication received from Laura was clear and concise. I received a fixed fee quote and there were no hidden costs associated with the legal work completed. The depth of advice received from Laura was incredible and exceeded my expectations. Laura explained everything in detail to ensure I had all the information I needed to make an informed decision. I would highly recommend Laura Wood and the team from Snedden Hall & Gallop Lawyers for employment contract advice.

Thank you Richard for supporting me and being sincere and consistent throughout this process. Because of you I will be able to achieve my future goals. I wish you all the best.

Just a final thank you to you both for helping me put an end to this matter finally after more than 2 years

It’s a huge relief and I think the best outcome we could have hoped for!

I engaged Amber following an accident in the gym which left me with a head and facial injury. Amber spent time with me before I committed to proceeding with a claim, walking me through the process. Throughout the course of the claim, Amber was professional and fast to respond. Amber is an expert in the area in which she practices and is deeply knowledgeable. Amber is a strong communicator and is very personable. Amber took the time to build and sustain a relationship with me throughout the course of the claim. I would recommend Amber’s service to anyone in the future, and can confidently say Amber is someone I would trust with any future claims.

Jonathan – Just wanted to drop you a quick message to say we have taken possession of the keys and to say thank you for your assistance – it has been invaluable in getting us in to our home before Christmas.

Amber is a great personal injury lawyer. She listened to my problems, responded to queries promptly and provided solutions to my problems.  She was patient, understanding and sympathetic. Amber worked really hard on my case and achieved a great outcome for me. I highly recommend Amber to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer. You will not regret having Amber as your lawyer.

I referred to Dominic Cookman at Snedden Hall & Gallop Lawyers after having my wife’s visa initially refused due to a mistake I had made in the application form for a partner visa.  From the first meeting I had with him, he provided an honest, upfront, clear and direct communication and direction on how we should proceed.  Most importantly, he was always available and responsive to my queries and questions that I raised during the long appeal process that we had against the initial decision by the Department of Home Affairs.  With his skills and direction we managed to win the appeal at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.  Further to that, when the case was referred back to the Department of Home Affairs for reconsideration, it was him who provided the necessary requirements in a clear manner, but also prepared and checked the required statements before submission.  The final result was the grant of a partner visa for my wife.  I undoubtedly declare that without Dominic we wouldn’t have been able to get the result we got in the end.

From my first exploratory call about seeking legal advice through to finalising a complex compensation matter for my seriously injured partner, Richard Faulks was extremely helpful. I highly recommend him. He was always extremely quick in replying to any question, is expert in the compensation field, has productive, professional relationships with insurers, and very good networks with private trustees and financial advisers

It was such a positive experience working with Snedden Hall & Gallop on our matter. The ease of dealing with both Kayla and Emily was obvious from the outset. Both were very diligent in their follow-ups and overall communication with me.

They were completely accessible and their knowledge of the process was excellent, making all of our dealings feel completely straight forward. I would definitely recommend Snedden Hall & Gallop.

At completion of the settlement, I would like to provide a review. Your support, advise, accessibility has made this process extremely professional and for me more important, humankind, a rarity,  and I truly thank you for that.

Wow, Richard, I have no words but thank you, thank you, thank you!

You have been an amazing lawyer/person to work with and I couldn’t be more grateful for the work and outcome yourself and your team have been able to get for me.

Thank you again, Richard, it truly has been an absolute pleasure to have you as my lawyer.

We would like to express our sincere and heartfelt appreciation and gratitude for the highly professional and competent services, provided in both a friendly and accessible manner. We had a long standing highly stressful case, Snedden Hall & Gallop Lawyers Family Law Team, took on our case, after being passed around and little success from other firms.

They were professional at all times, and empathetic to our family when it was needed. We felt comfortable and supported at all times, Jonathan and Jane went above and beyond to ensure nothing was left unturned, after a lot of long sleepless nights I’m sure, we got the outcome that we had hoped for.

Thank you again for everything, although he will be there and we need to keep a eye on things closely with the kids, this is a much better outcome then what could’ve been.
