We have used the team (Janelle and Michele) on a few occasions. They have been outstanding. Courteous, professional and efficient at all times. Cannot recommend them enough.Ken RussellKen Russell ★☆☆☆☆ Should have read previous 1 Star Reviews. Paid Nick $440 up front for 40min of verbal advice, then asked him to make a single phone call before commiting to a $1500 request to take the matter further in writing. Appointment Time was stated as 1 hour so once the figure of $1500 was established I was sent to the Reception abruptly. Here is where I was followed and between Nick and the Secretary pressured into making the $1500 payment and each time I said I would think about it I was pushed to just make the Payment straightaway multiple times.After numerous emails and phone calls pushing for the additional payment to be made I asked if after 2 weeks if the phone call had been made and responce was this service was $440 an hour so no phone call had been done.I felt after such an easy first verbal meeting and 20min remaining from the paid hour consultation a requested 5 min phone call to my Property Manager showed that all they were worried about was getting as much money as Fast as possible without listening or giving their customers any value for what they had paid.ADDITIONAL Feedback.I have been sent an email of DEMAND today stating I have been put on Notice to Cease and Desist any further comments and demanded to REMOVE my Google Review by 5pm today or action will be taken against me. Again, trying to pressure people to do what they want without what the customer had asked for just isn't how you would expect a professional business to behave.Martin SimonsMartin Simons ★★★★★ Lovely servicePeter HardwickPeter Hardwick ★★★★★ Brenda CangahBrenda Cangah ★★★★☆ Matthew TaylorMatthew Taylor ★★★★★ In our recent house purchase, we found Janelle and Michele exceptionally knowledgeable, helpful and supportive during the buying process. We will certainly use McNamara for any future legal matters.Gregory BlackGregory Black ★★★★★ My wife and I were very happy with the work done by McNamara Law on our conveyance and especially the work done by Aleisha Smith. Very happy to recommend this quality firm.Brendon BaglinBrendon Baglin ★★★★★ Paul DPaul D ★☆☆☆☆ Considering a Will?Perhaps consider their follow up execution as an example.Mother passed away. As the son, requested a copy of her Wiil from Kevin. After nothing forthcoming in a week, requested an estimate of when Kevin might be able to post it. No response following almost another week to an estimate to post it.Consider carefully which firm has follow through on services paid for previously. Possibly if there's no further money in it, there's no reason to follow up.Response from the ownerHi PaulThank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your experience with McNamara Law. It is disappointing that you were not happy with the service you received. When it comes to legal matters relating to a persons will, we can only provide information as instructed in the will. If you would like to discuss this with one of the executive team, please call the office, provide your contact information and we will arrange a call back. Thank you.

After our initial $400 consultation with all evidence including internal and external sensitive video footage we were informed that Peter the owner would not take our calls until 20k was deposited into his account. Your company should be on trial.It's your company that should be on trialMatthew DeverMatthew Dever ★☆☆☆☆ Nothing short of humiliation, dishonesty and extremely unprofessional. Charmaine indicated that the owner Peter would evaluate our case.We asked repeatedly to speak with Peter yet was continually told until 20k was deposited he was unable to take our calls. ABSOLUTE HUSTLERS.Erin MurrayErin Murray ★★★★★ Thank you Aleisha, selling 2 properties at once with many different requirements could have been complex and confusing.
