Read some of the recent feedback our team has received below.
Thanks for acting for me throughout my ordeal. More so thanks for managing your client's expectations so he wasn't too disappointed with the outcome…. Everything has now gone quite. In essence life is good. Take care in these trying times. Cheers and thanks again….
Would like to say a very special thank you to Tony Phillips for today's result at our mutual client's trial. Your skill, your professionalism and your care, from the very first meeting, through delegation, and ultimately personal support on the day. You've been behind it all. Special thanks to Gareth Walters for everything you do, so calm and understanding, amazing! And to Sian and Alice. It's been an absolute pleasure dealing with you all. Thank you.
Fiona, I would like to say thank you for everything. Thank you for pushing me on in my weak moments, all the support and caring. You are truly an amazing lawyer. Thank you for the wonderful gifts. I would not be where I am without you. With gratitude, PC
It would appear I've been able to get some level of resolution for the next few years at least. I'm sure you get "thank yous" all the time in your line of work but I just wanted to say a profound and heart felt THANK YOU to you and the team there at PFL, for the great work done on my matter….. I imagine this is not the last time I will cross paths with PFL but rest assured there is no other law firm I will call if and when the time comes!!!!
I will never forget the help you gave me in navigating the most difficult time of my journey on the planet. Your care, professionalism and at times toughness, were the backbone of an unsavoury event, that you could astutely see a resolution to, far easier than I could at that time.
I appreciate Tony’s measured, level-headed and calm approach. He is a realist who ensures clients are cared for at every step of the process.
You made an unpleasant situation that bit more bearable and gave us hope. It was a lengthy negotiation, for the desired/achieved outcome and we are very grateful to you for your wonderful advice and diplomacy when we became emotional and frustrated at times.
I am more than confident to refer clients to Tony. Everyone calms down when they meet with him and he offers good, common sense commercial and property settlement advice.
You made a really bad situation a lot easier for me. I really appreciate it and life has been constantly on the improve ever since.
Thank you very much for your perseverance and patience, and most of all for your professionalism in dealing with such a difficult matter. I think it could have easily descended into aggressive, non-productive communications if you had not maintained such a professional and measured manner.
A friend referred me to Tony after I had struggled with two other family lawyers who really did not deal with our case as I had hoped. Tony grasped all the sensitivities and also took care of the complex details when it came to our settlement.
I am continually amazed at the quality of work which you produce and how clever you are at communicating and articulating a position. You are both very good at what you do and I can’t believe you have other matters as well as mine which you have to be equally across – it is pretty amazing
I have been very lucky to have all your support through what has been a very difficult time in my life. I would never wish my experience on anyone, however would highly recommend the professional services and expertise which you provide. Again, thank you so much for your help & allowing me to progress with what I hope to be the happiest chapter of my life.
I feel in safe hands with you acting for me… it definitely lightens the load on this sometimes crazy rollercoaster ride and I couldn’t be more grateful for your advice and support.
I want to take the opportunity to thank you for your help, support and giving me the knowledge to cope and plan with the situation I was presented.
