Thank you very much for all your help and professionalism regarding the sale. You made everything feel easy for us. And would you be so kind as to pass on our thanks to Rob who sorted out the early issues with the contract. He may not have mentioned this, but the reason we chose Bell Legal in the first place was I discovered Rob had acted for our mother when she purchased the property almost thirty years ago. His correspondence from the time sounded very nice, and not knowing any Queensland solicitors myself, I tracked him down. It has been a pleasure to renew the connection, once removed as it were, and see a family property our mother so enjoyed travel full circle with his help . Sincerely, JS, Gold Coast
Dear Daniel, Awesome Daniel, Your guys are both professional and great in customer service. We are really happy with your services and hope to work more together in the near future. Sincerely, KC, Northern Territory

Dear Mr. Fradgley (John) As our Mother’s Estate is now finalized, we wish to thank you for your help in this regard. We especially appreciate your time and advice on the Auction of the Property. We were very pleased with the outcome. We know our parents would also have been appreciative. Sincerely, S & P, Palm Beach
Dear Jodi Thank you so much for your professionalism, responsiveness, advice, attention to detail and all your help generally with this transaction, it is very much appreciated. Not sure how we would have gotten to settlement without your help and assistance.
Dear Alex, There are not any words that can express how grateful I am for all you have done. You have always given me clear and professional advice, always keeping the most important thing first - [my child]'s best interest and well being. From the first meeting to now I have trusted the direction and advice you have given me. In the beginning, I was very frightened and concerned. With every email, every word you have made me feel safe. You assured me that if the focus is always [my child's] best interests, then that is what it will be and you were 110% right. Your care you have shown is immeasurable. You didn't just achieve final orders for me Alex but you have set me free. As I write this email, I have tears running down cheeks, there are no words Alex how grateful I am and how happy I am with the outcome.
Dear Janine I have a friend who is a retired Federal Judge. He has been following my story and has expressed his professional admiration for you and Bell Legal. Thanks so much for your excellent advice and service. It was a very distressing time and you made it much easier for me to understand a different system and cope with all the related legalities. I am copying Karen in because she made the introduction and has been very understanding. So many thanks also to Karen. DC - United Kingdom
Hi Alex, I just wanted to thank-you for all the moral and material support you have given us during this period. Yesterday was a defining moment and your efforts and professionalism have resulted in an outcome better than we could have hoped-for at the start of mediation. I admire how robust you are dealing with family matters on an everyday basis and hope that, despite the long days, that outcomes like yesterday are as upraising for you as it was for us. We are extremely grateful for your guidance and realise the personal toll that dealing with family matters must result in. To this end we offer our most heartfelt thanks for your tireless efforts in achieving a fantastic outcome.
Dear Dan, The care that you have given this task has been great. In addition, the very pleasant and supportive way, in which you have guided me through the process of making both the Trusts and the Will, has also been valued. Thank you!
