Kind words from our clients

OUTSTANDING! My family have relied on Butler-McDermott for all of our estate planning and conveyancing needs for around five years. We have had some complex health issues to navigate requiring very careful consideration of management of the estate as well as Power of Attorney for both Financial and Health related matters, and this has involved our whole family not just my wife and I as our eldest is to be an Executor. At all times we have found Butler McDermott to be extremely helpful with following advice, providing advice and developing simple and effective solutions for complex problems. Turnaround times and fees were very very good and our degree of trust in Butler McDermott is very high chance we feel they deserve five stars and absolutely no hesitation recommending them. Going forward we will rely on Butler McDermott Nambour for all of our legal needs. We live in Brisbane but our team is in Nambour and that has been no barrier whatsoever to our requirements.
