Customer Testimonials

Professional and courteous lawyers who provided sound legal advice, in a timely manner, subsequent to my recent family matter. The team were supportive and reassuring, yet candid as they guided me through a very emotional and stressful time, ensuring I achieved a desirable outcome. I highly recommend Preston Law for any legal matter.
Sheree and Preston Law provided smart, accessible, sensitive and first-rate service in every respect. Although it was obviously a difficult and sad occasion, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your firm heartily to others.
Danielle Little from Preston Law assisted with the purchase of my first property. She was proficient, efficient, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Danielle made the somewhat daunting process easy and provided clear instructions in a timely manner. I would certainly engage her services again.
Highly recommend Preston Law. I had Madison Fry who I found to be very adaptable to my situation and very helpful. With complete attention to detail, she answered each and every question I asked her thoroughly and also, she put it in such a way so that I could easily understand. Thank you for your A+++ service.
With responsibility for appointing legal service providers for the Christie Group commercial property portfolio and the Homemaker Retail Property Trust (now incorporated into Lend Lease/GPT), I have engaged many of Australia’s top tier legal firms over the last 36 years. In 2013, I appointed Preston Law as the sole legal services provider for all of our commercial property entities. Preston Law acted for us on the sale of a property interstate for $70M. I absolutely recommend Preston Law to any potential clients – top tier legal services at Cairns prices.
