Client Testimonials

“We feel ‘thank you’ is inadequate for the gratitude we feel; we are so very grateful for the tenacity you have shown in this seven year Westpoint debacle:  we would never have had the fortitude or the courage to have lasted this harrowing length of time.

If you had not been so diligent, we would not be in the healthy financial position we now find ourselves. We are eternally grateful to both you and Slater and Gordon for your persistence and determination.

Thank you again.
Yours very sincerely,
J. and G. Andrew”


"We really appreciate and will never forget all your help in dealing with our matter. Our stress levels would no doubt have been much higher had you and Damien not come to our "rescue" and believed in our case. Using your knowledge of the law, to help us to achieve a measure of justice from those who have wronged us, makes us feel a little more at ease now. Hope you get some downtime with your family over the next few weeks. You deserve it.

Yours faithfully
B. and D. Ruckman"
