"Forum Law is engaged by Menai Sand & Soil to carry out all its legal matters. Forum Law came highly recommended by our Company Accountant. “Annette Fontana has always attended to all matters large and small in a highly professional manner. This professionalism extends to all staff at Forum Law. “Most if not all phone enquiries are handled the same day or the latest the next day. Forum Law has been asked to handle some very complex issues, also general day to day issues. All matters are well considered and advice or actions taken have been the correct legal path."
Jeff Hankins from Director, Menai Sand & Soil
Forum Law
"Coral Air has engaged Forum Law on various tasks including contractual, debt recovery, court appearances and general legal advice. On all counts Annette and her staff have always met or exceeded our expectations. The point of difference with Forum Law is in particular the accessibility to Annette, whether through email, phone or face to face meetings. Coral Air and I can highly recommend the services of Forum Law."
Paul Lehane from Managing Director, Coral Air Conditioning Pty Ltd
Forum Law
"Annette and her staff have always been accessible. Even when Annette has been busy or out of the office one of her staff has informed me when she will be available and when I should expect a return call. I always received the return call at around the time promised or I received a call from Annette’s office if she looked like being delayed. If Annette was unavailable and needed an answer one of her staff was always available to answer my question. Forum Law always got done what was required to achieve my needs. I was given options as to what course of action should be taken, the cost ramifications of each and a recommendation which way to go. Forum Law was always able to address my concerns.Matters were always under control and Forum Law took away the worry. At all times I felt at ease that Forum Law were looking after my interests. “The quality of work was excellent and any required follow through or tidy up was done promptly and efficiently. Forum Law are very thorough and make sure things are done when they are supposed to be and are always proactive. Matters are not left ‘hanging’ and are always brought to a conclusion."
Steve Mcleod from Senior Project Manager, Farrell Coyne Projects
Forum Law
"In relation to the services Forum Law provided us, we are very satisfied customers. Annette and her team were always responsive and helpful in meeting our needs. They responded quickly and with the required information. We understand that as a client we can be demanding at looking at issues in a ‘fresh way’, but they came through with the required information in the required time. Our main situation was complicated as it involved legal precedents that were still under review to establish case law, as well as being complicated by an opposition who were intent on overcoming every aspect of legal procedure. The Forum Law team was across the evolution of this new case law and were able to offer experts who could help with further detail as and when required. We wish Forum Law well now and in the future"
