Pania Watt was thorough in all aspects of my legal journey and made sure I was understanding what was happening at all times. Her caring and light disposition was a pleasure, during a tough and stressful time. I’d highly recommend Bourke Legal to all.
I feel very fortunate to have engaged the services of Brendan Bourke. Brendan has a reputation of providing a caring and professional approach. I required a competent, dedicated lawyer and was recommended Brendan by a previous client. Brendan and his team went the “extra mile” and it was comforting to finally have someone standing in my corner with my best interests at heart. If you require this type of service you won’t find better. Thank you Brendan and team.
Extremely thorough, professional and prepared to explain the process in an easy to follow manner throughout a complex series of matters. The work of Pania and her staff has been second to none and greatly appreciated.
Pania, I didn’t get an opportunity to come to any of those final meetings so I could say thank you in person. I want you to know how grateful I am for all your dedication, knowledge and all the elements needed to do the job as well as you did for my son. They are taking their time and looking at investing to generate an income. I wish you, your colleagues and team the very best. Thank you!
