What our clients are saying

I would like to acknowledge my sincere gratitude to Mr Jack Leitner. I was represented by another firm in Parramatta Local Court. My previous representatives’ preparation for my case was atrocious. I changed my representation. Within minutes of our first phone call, I knew this man knew his stuff. His preparation, professionalism, research, calming influence, everything, was incredible.
I owe everything to Jack, he has changed my life. You are a legend.


‘Daniel is a great solicitor. I’ve used his service twice now and he really turns up for you.”


‘I can highly recommend Daniel and the team from Australian Lawyers and Advocates. My matter was looked after by Daniel directly and the level of expertise and knowledge provided by Daniel was not only outstanding but kept me at ease throughout the entire process of my case. The guidance provided by Daniel and the team lead to a positive outcome on my behalf. Thank you.”


I would like to recommend Jack Leitner. I want to extend my appreciation for all your efforts during this long and difficult path. Your availability, follow-up, and especially the attentive and prompt replies have been invaluable. Dealing with the law and lawsuits is not easy for the “common” man. The incarceration of my partner during the course of this legal nightmare was devastating and certainly increased my level of stress while having to deal with this matter at the same time. Please know that your kindness and concern has made a difference. Thank you for helping me through this difficult trial. I am so grateful to you for representing my partner in court, and for being a powerful advocate for my partner throughout these difficult times. Thank you so much for your passionate, thoughtful, and brilliant work. To say I am pleased would be a great understatement. Again thank you so much for everything you and your firm has done for me. I really cannot tell you how much it all means to me.

Scott P.
