I have just come out of a very difficult time, as when the time came for my father’s will to be distributed a family member contested his will, but thanks to Neal Collin and his staff in Berwick it is now resolved.

It took several months of negotiations and eventually going to mediation in the County Count, where it was resolved successfully for me. I have utmost praise for Neal Collin, who guided me through this situation. He was always helpful and kind towards me and he explained things in words that I could understand.

The costs for me for this terrible time was far less than I had anticipated. The plaintiff who had employed a solicitor from a large Melbourne firm was charged double the amount of my costs.

I have now told all of my friends how happy I am with the outcome, thanks to Neal Collin.
