Below are a few comments that we would like to share about our legal services.  Please also feel free to read our Google reviews.

 

We are elderly retirees and engaged McColm Matsinger Lawyers to update our Wills, Enduring Power of Attorneys and Advance Health Directives.  We found the firm’s service to be exemplary  – very courteous, obliging, prompt and knowledgeable.  We would not hesitate in recommending the firm to others  -in particular Peter  Porcellini.

In January 2017, in my capacity as the Executor for a deceased Estate in Australia which included substantial overseas assets, I appointed Christine Matsinger  to assist me  in winding up the Estate. 

This Estate turned out to be fraught with complex and difficult issues that involved prolonged input from overseas lawyers, specialist accountants and tax solicitors, Federal Government Departments and at times, diverse demands by the beneficiaries themselves.

Christine handled the many problems raised during the life of this Estate with  total professionalism, and through her diligence and calm perseverance, she was able to wind up  the Estate timeously and with an excellent result.

I found her easy to make contact with, and her communication skills, not only with myself but also with the many other parties involved, were most impressive.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Christine as an exceptional and outstanding solicitor.

We have had nothing but great work from Peter. He is very efficient, he takes his time to explain things and is very helpful.

McColm Matsinger Lawyers employees are very friendly and asked if we needed water or anything  else while we waited.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family.

Firstly, I was in business for over 50 years, and over those years I have been associated with a reasonable number of solicitors. I rate Malcolm as one of the best solicitors I have been associated with.  Not only because of his knowledge of the law, his patience, understanding and empathy in handling my affairs made me feel that that I was in very capable hands, and the results he has achieved for me proved that to be correct.

When I decided to launch my business here in Australia way back when some 13 years ago. I looked for a local law firm from the myriad of lawyers on the Sunshine Coast. 

I needed a team capable of understanding our unique set of needs as a business, as our speciality is software.  I needed a team who understood licencing.

As it’s our sole income stream, for myself and the family, we needed to ensure the advice was right, with correctly set up corporate structures in place too. Their advice then has ensured our success and longevity and continues to do so today.

I have worked with both Christine and Malcolm and in areas appertaining to licencing and  commercial enterprise business opportunities and received sound commercial advice and help navigating the odd hiccup along the way in business as you do.

Their advice and wise council, without a doubt ensures we act with confidence and with a sure footing.

I would highly recommend McColm Matsinger.

They are a very important part of my team and who are also genuinely nice people who take the time to care and have our best interests at heart as a business and as people.

Thank you.

My experience with McColm Matsinger was related to contesting a will that excluded me, even though I was the only living offspring of the deceased. The circumstances surrounding the will suggested interference by another party, owing to the reduced mental capacity of my parent. Regrettably documentary evidence was extremely difficult to acquire, much of it no longer accessible. I can testify to exemplary handling of this difficult matter by McColm Matsinger, whose negotiations with the named beneficiary came to a satisfactory conclusion for both parties, out of court. I have no hesitation recommending the firm to anyone needing legal advice. I can commend their discretion and the relevance of their advice, especially in terms of minimising friction and costs, and steering for an achievable goal.

We moved away from McColm/Matsinger a number of years ago with the intension of having our Wills and P of A’s etc. covered by a law firm closer to us in Brisbane.

This we did and had experiences with two law firms on the north side of Brisbane. The first one was terrible and after completion of the Wills etc., which took a long time to complete, – he made the comment – “Those Wills were the most difficult I have ever done”. They were pretty well the same to what Malcolm has just recently completed?.

As it turned out we required the Wills etc. to be done again and we went to a second lawyer and without going into the details he unfortunately was no better than the first.

Those experiences emphasized to Dianne and myself that we had made a big mistake and should not have moved away from McColm/Matsinger.

We bit the bullet and decided we should contact Malcolm, explain our situation, advise of the problems we had encountered in the hope he would show some understanding and take us back and complete our Wills/P of A’s and associated details in a hassle free, professional way.

A great weight was lifted off our minds when your Company showed us so much understanding – so a really big thanks to yourself, Jodie, Meghan, Renita and most definitely of course, Malcolm.

It is quite obvious you all understand what people want and really understand the different situations many people go through. You are able to simplify things and at the same time be extremely professional – I think it is known as to holding onto empathy.

You all have heaps of it and thanks for understanding and accepting our situation – we will be, forever grateful.

Over the past 6months I have had the pleasure of dealing with McColm Matsinger Lawyers including Christine and Cathy. The team has guided us through the long process of settling estate affairs in a timely and professional way. At all times empathic, patient and understanding. We have been well informed along the way by phone and email. At times it has been difficult as we are interstate and overseas but this has been overcome with a proactive response.

I would not hesitate in recommending McColm Matsinger Lawyers for all your legal matters.

Eniquest Development Engineer/General Manager

 

As a young person, I never considered the need to have a legally binding will in place until my daughter was born. Even though I had no idea what was required, Malcolm McColm made the process very straightforward and stress-free for my family and I. He was very friendly and took the time to listen to my specific requirements, to ensure my wishes were accurately recorded and provisions were put in place for my daughter’s future. The services provided by McColm Matsinger Lawyers were efficient, thorough and finalised quickly. I would certainly recommend the firm to anyone.

The service we received from McColm Matsinger Lawyers during our recent interstate transactions was excellent. We are in Victoria and were selling our house in QLD.  We were selling to a developer which was a little more complicated than a normal house sale and MMLaw was extremely helpful in assisting us in navigating our way through this process. We are extremely grateful for the professional manner in which MMLaw represented us and we would highly recommend them for any future dealings.

I recently consulted with McColm Matsinger Lawyers, specifically Malcolm McColm, regarding an update to my Estate Planning affairs to counter changes in my personal situation.During this process Malcolm ensured adequate time was available to discuss all issues around my situation, and the changes that had occurred.  This was then provided in summary format on which I could make comments.  He clarified any queries or misunderstandings to ensure I was fully aware of each aspect of the decisions I made with respect to Estate Planning.  This level of transparency and communication was essential to my comfort levels and willingness to proceed to finalisation of my Estate Planning affairs.I would not hesitate to recommend Malcolm to anyone seeking assistance in this area – you are not likely to find better.
