    • LW

      I was highly impressed with Aitken Partners.  Their advice was well placed, diligent and persistently excellent. They kept me well informed and updated every step of the way.

      My team was more than adequate to handle a very difficult situation and after a long hard journey we reached a satisfactory conclusion with Justice being served.

      Aitken’s are a powerful firm with expert advice and I confidently recommend them.

      We located Lizia Lim via STEP.  From the first moment we made contact and explained the urgency of our estate situation, Lizia immediately came to our aid and provided exceptional advice and support throughout each stage of the process.  Lizia’s technical expertise, attention to detail and personal commitment were outstanding.

      We are truly grateful and highly recommend Lizia for estate litigation matters in Victoria.

      Thanks Aitken Partners team for helping us with this hard situation of compulsory land acquisition. Very comfortable to deal with Andrew Blogg.

    • Mary

      Aitken Partners is the only family law lawyers I will trust, after having the misfortune of seeking help from other lawyers who without conscience, robbed me blind and did more harm than good for my family law case by doing a really bad job. [They] did a great job getting me almost everything I was seeking for. Very thorough and professional, their tactical approach left myself and my partner impressed that we only recommend them to our friends who need family law help because we know they will be in good competent hands.

      I have had the opportunity to work with several practitioners across the firm and I am always amazed at the way they treat people – I have always left with a plan of action and with them giving me a commercial outcome. Some law firms I have used in 27 years in business, make you feel like they see dollar signs not clients, these people don’t. There is a chap there Andrew Blogg, who is ultra commercial and tells you if he thinks you are wasting your time. Sensible fellow!!

      Robert Bradley and his team have helped my family with a property enquiry couple years ago. They are now helping us with a very complicated property matter (concerning compulsory acquisition, overlay and tenants in common dispute). They have shown a tremendous amount of care and diligence in their advice and approach to our problem, and have made more progress in the last 6 months than a previous law firm (refered by accountant) did the two years prior. We know we’re in good hands, and would not hesitate to recommend their services.

    • Victoria

      When I first contacted Aitken Partners in relation to a family law matter, I was extremely fragile and scared. The two solicitors who worked on my file were professional, empathetic and kind throughout the whole process. They were very patient with me when I was confused or hesitant and never ever made me feel like a dill when I didn’t understand something. Thanks to them both, I have now settled and can get on with my life.

    • Richard

      The first set of family lawyers who treated me like they cared and that I wasn’t just a file… the advice was patient and he took the time to understand my issue.

      Particularly important for me was that I would not be laughed at for my religious beliefs. In every other firm I could sense a smirk when I spoke about it. When I spoke with David he listened and respectfully told me why it wasn’t relevant. He also explained things in a way that made perfect sense. Although my matter is probably a small one he was friendly and courteous and his assistant was efficient and polite.

      I highly appreciate and recommend

      I am writing to thank you and your team, who were involved in the compulsory acquisition of my mother’s property. Like most laypersons I was not aware of the requirements, nor procedures of this type of action by the Government.

      Certainly the work performed in respect to the acquisition was always clearly related to me and any questions were promptly answered. You and your team were always patient and friendly to deal with and were understanding of the fact that I had the death and Probate of my mother’s will to deal with at the same time.

      Thank you for your assistance.

      Linda Hart at Aitken Partners was recommended to us by a friend and we weren’t disappointed. She was attentive, very professional and answered all of our questions in a concise and thoughtful manner. She made the process of making our wills straightforward and stress-free. Most importantly, Linda made us feel completely at ease about our decisions.

      I just want to express my appreciation for the smooth, efficient and professional way you handled the task of Giles’ and my Wills. I am particular grateful that you were empathetic to the fact that we at imminent travel plans at the time, and worked tirelessly with Shona to achieve an expedited completion of tasks, prior to our overseas trip. You were attentive to our particular needs, and this was reflected in all the correspondence between us.

      Your service was exceptional. In a time where I felt completely lost after the passing of my father, you and the team at Aitken Partners were courteous, respectful and professional. You were clear and concise with all information and always kept me in the loop to alleviate any concerns I may have had. Despite me leaving the country my matter was still processed in a timely manner. I would recommend your services to anyone who may be seeking legal advice and thank you dearly for your professionalism and understanding.
