“The team at Bourke Legal showed exemplary professionalism in all aspects of the work I hired them to do. I say team because that is how they worked, from Pania and Jessica and all the office staff, including other hired professionals. This also extends to the management who fully collaborated and supported their team, which is not normal in my experience. They were obviously all aware of my many concerns and treated me with the utmost respect and empathy, gaining me the best possible outcome. When I observed the focus and knowledge of Jessica working with my Barrister, I felt very safe knowing they were working in my best interests. Many thanks to all at Bourke Legal.”

“I used Bourke Legal, specifically Melissa Arndell for a work place injury and TPD related claims. The whole matter took two years and during this time I could fault the work Melissa and her team did for me. Constantly working and keeping me up to date throughout the whole process. Mel was always availalbe to answer any questions I had and always put my mind at ease. The outcome was exactly what I wanted but even if it wasn't I would have still felt comfortable knowing that Mel did her best. I can not recommend Mel and Bourke Legal more highly. I went into this very scared and nervous but i'm now in the best position of my life. Thank you Mel and Bourke Legal :)”
