Client Testimonials

  • I engaged the services of Mr John Velos under extremely difficult circumstances. My husband passed away and shortly after I was admitted to Alfred Hospital with pneumonia. I was very ill, frightened and anxious due to the passing of my husband. The sorrow and grief that I was going through urged me to prepare a Will as I had no idea of what tomorrow would bring. Mr John Velos and his staff understood my situation and acted in an efficient, timely and compassionate manner. Pursuant to my instructions over a telephone conference, Mr Velos urgently prepared a new Will and organized for a Lawyer to attend the Hospital with one of the secretaries, where the Will was executed and witnessed according to law. read more

    Magic Barclay
  • I engaged Mr Velos’ services as soon as a newly engaged customer began to default on their arrangements in relation to receivables. Even though we delivered projects that were up to code, and in line with Australian standards there was a long and unpleasant back and forth. Mr Velos and his team understood the situation and were able to advise me on several avenues to protect us against any claims and pursue the matter at hand. Whilst this was a difficult time for us, Mr Velos’ team were able to support us and give us direction as we were unaware of our position during the most distressing of times. read more
