Client References

“Jacqueline has been my legal adviser for 25 years and has always given professional guidance and empathetic knowledge. My extended family have also been assisted by Jacqueline and would attest to her work ethics.”

M Wilcox
Private Client

“Moving from renting to buying a property in Auckland was a very stressful process on its own. We were very thankful to have Jacqueline helping us out, who kept us up to date all the way and gave us great advice. Although we had purchased a house previously this was well over 10 years ago, we were thankful that she explained everything clearly and easy for us to understand. Thanks for making a stressful process a little less scary for us.”

“My husband and I have had the pleasure of dealing with Jacqueline several times now over the past few years. She has been extremely helpful to us, and indeed made one particular suggestion when we were buying our home through family, which has proven to be invaluable advice, and for this alone we are eternally grateful. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jacqueline to anybody seeking legal advice. Dealing with Jacqueline has made a normally laborious part of life, pleasant and painless. She is a lovely person who truly cares about the end result for the client.”

“Excellent service. We were disappointed with our previous family trust professional provider – Jacqueline did a fantastic job navigating the transfer and upgrading the Trust to best practice standards for New Zealand.”
