Paul McAleavey of Girlings has been outstanding in providing legal employment advice to me, compassionately managing a difficult journey for me  and negotiating a better settlement than was initially offered.  His thoroughness and attention to detail are highly commendable.  In today's volatile employment market, I have had to seek legal advice on a number of occasions; I can honestly say that Paul and Girlings stand head and shoulders above their competition. Project Manager, Aerospace industry

We both just want to say thank you so, so much for helping us get our dream property despite the many hiccups along the way. Once the ball was rolling we really did feel that we were working with you as a team and this is testimony to how you fully involved us and explained everything as we went along. Lindsay & Jess

Communication with Kacy and Amy was perfect. Miss Hodges

I just wanted to say thank you very much for your help with understanding the situation we were in with dad's death and mum's deteriorating mental health. At a time like this, it can be bewildering as well as stressful and we were glad we had someone like you to turn to for advice. 

Clare was very professional and helpful. My sale and purchase went through smoothly thanks to her. I would definitely recommend her. Ms Byrne
