I had a fantastic and smooth experience with Unified Lawyers from beginning to end. Stanley was there every step of the way to assist with my first home purchase. He was also available to answer my calls and emails (I had plenty given it was my first purchase!), communication was never an issue. Highly recommend Unified Lawyers for anyone that needs professional legal advice/service.read more

Alex, Frances and their team are representing my family Law matter. I have found them to be extremely considerate, detail oriented and focused. When dealing with a highly emotional matter such as Family Law it is important to feel as though your Legal team has taken the time to really understand your case and has your families best interest at heart and this has been my experience of Unified Lawyers. Highly recommended.read more
