Unified Lawyers went above and beyond in helping me secure a property purchase in this tough Sydney market. I am so grateful that they were willing to review the contract and strata documents on a... Saturday. Thanks to their quick but diligent turn-around, I was able to have the advantage of making an offer first on the property that I wanted. Even on Sunday afternoon, they answered my phone call when I had a few questions. Between the offer and settlement, the whole team at Unified Lawyers were professional, timely and friendly. Everyone was very easy to deal with and open to responding to my questions. I'd highly recommend working with them.read more
