Happy to recommend the De Marco / Judicate Lawyers team to anyone looking for a consultative chat about their legal situation.
Thankyou Lyn McCracken for all of the great advice and service that you have provided me.
Wonderful and thanks again for all your help!
I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else!
Thank you for your prompt response and what has been an effortless and pleasant service. You should note that we did some background research prior to choosing your firm and wholeheartedly agree with the great online reviews.
As you can see, I too work for a firm that does conveyancing. However, to guard against a conflict of interest we decided to use another service, notwithstanding that a free service was available here.
We will continue to use your firm in the future.
Kenan – it’s the first time we’ve used your firm but have been very impressed with your professionalism and responsiveness throughout the process. We would have no hesitation recommending you to any of our family or friends in the future.
Thanks so much for all your services, very much appreciated. It’s been a pleasure.
Thank-you so much for your dedication and hard work to get this issue resolved on behalf of your clients. You give a fantastic and focused service that we have appreciated greatly.

Just a message to express our gratitude for the way in which Amira looked after our property sale. She was invariably diligent, considerate and most competent in all our exchanges. Her pleasant manner was always reassuring and she was very good at taking the intiiative on a number of occasions.
She is a great asset to De Marco and I am sure she will have many satisfied clients.
I just wanted to pass on my gratitude for the professional service I have received from your Company, in particular from Amira.
She has been fantastic to work with and has made the selling process seamless.
She attended to my enquires quickly and professionally and I would recommend De Marco Lawyers to my friends based on this positive experience.
I am now searching for another property and will most be using your services again without hesitation.
Thank you, Amira, for all your great work.
After putting off our Will & Testament for a number of years, my wife and I decided to get everything in order.
We contacted our local Lawyers, De Marco Lawyers in Glenroy and made an appointment to go and see them to finalise our affairs.
De Marco Lawyers organised a suitable time for us to meet with them and get things rolling.
My wife and I both found out very quickly how professional their service was. Their Lawyer quickly made us feel very comfortable and we knew then we were in good hands.
Admittingly they asked us a lot of questions that needed to be answered so that nothing was left to chance. They were very thorough to ensure all our requests were documented to ensure there would be no problems later in the future.
I would have no hesitation in recommending their service to any of my friends and colleagues. We are both very satisfied with the outcome of our Wills and can be assured that when the time comes everything is in place.

Hello, my name is Marie O’Donnell. My husband Ron and I had a chance meeting with Joseph DeMarco at a breakfast function. The guest speaker had been laughingly referring to young couples not having a last will in place. When I looked at Ron he laughed and said neither do some older couples. Joe looked at me and asked if he could speak to us after the function.
Joseph explained to me and Ron the worst case scenario for our kids, grandkids and family if we died without a will. He asked us to just speak with Chris from his office to discuss. No pressure selling, which we appreciated.
We made our appointment within a month. Chris and Joy made the process so easy, they asked probing questions on somethings that we hadn’t even thought of. It was an eye opener as to what mess we could leave behind in the event of one or both of our deaths.
After the first draft with some minor tweaks we were relieved to have put this in place.
Joy kept following us up to ensure we were happy with our final draft and they went out of their way to accommodate us with sign off.
We cannot thank Joe and his team at DeMarco Lawyers helping us. No one wants to consider their death, but the importance of attending to this one little thing has given us great satisfaction and relief.
We would highly recommend De Marco Lawyers to all.
My family and I have been using the services of De Marco Lawyers in Glenroy for approximately 12 years.
DML have acted for us in numerous legal fields such as, having a single dwelling Covenant removed from a house that we bought, Commercial leasing, residential and commercial conveyancing and even having a
Powers of Attorney written up.
They have always been extremely professional and prompt and a pleasure to do business with.
The staff and management are friendly and accommodating and always seem to find time, even with the shortest of notice.
I would highly recommend De Marco Lawyers and will have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
I want to thank you, your team and Carolyn for a great result today.
There had been a lot of work involved in getting my brothers to resign as trustees, pay me estate income, invest trust funds for my mother’s benefit, and finally, wind up my father’s estate.
We have a great record in that of the four Supreme Court actions we have together undertaken, we have had four successful outcomes.
It has been fraught at times, but we got there each time because we had perseverance, focus, belief and importantly ‘right’ on our side each time.
It was never about hubris or revenge on our part, just forcing others to do the right thing.
Thanks also to Andrew and Michael T who were there in support at the final stage, and I do appreciate that Andrew pushed for the signed agreement to be completed on the day, together with him foregoing his usual additional fee to do so!
Again, many thanks and I could not have achieved what we achieved without your knowledge, commitment and desire to achieve a favourable outcome for me on each and every occasion.
Thank you for your prompt service and professional advice as always.
Thank you for helping me with my legal enquiry.
Thank you Eamonn and Michael for all your help. I am extremely happy and definitely a tonne of bricks lifted off my shoulders. Will recommend this law firm to others.
Thank you very much for your time yesterday,
We were very glad to see you for such a professional service.
The Judicate Lawyers team guided me through difficult times with honesty and care. They are experienced, efficient, determined, and simply down to earth people. I am very lucky to have found Judicate Lawyers. I highly recommend them!
Thank you Clare. Please inform Michael that I will contact the Legal Services Board .
Many thanks for your assistance and I wish you both the very best for the future.
Hi Michael P,
I want to thank you again for your letter dated 10 February 2017 to SRO to defend my case regarding unfair penalty on land tax payments.
Your letter exposed your expert knowledge, talented writing and was successful in having that penalty enormous amount completely waved.
I repeat here my gratitude and will recommend to whoever needs an expert advice in your field as I will remember you when needed.
Judicate Lawyers can be described as genuine, kind, positive, knowledgeable and realistic. I couldn't recommend their professional and thorough approach to enough people. Who ever needs a law firm to represent them, for whatever reasons look no further.
Thank you Josephine, and the whole Judicate team, for handling this matter for Paula. It's a relief that the property settled yesterday.
Thank you Michael (Tourkakes).
You are an amazing lawyer.
Appreciate all you great work.
Hi Michael (Pickering),
On behalf of Joel and my other partner, we'd like to say a very big thank you to you and your team for assisting us with the settlement of this matter!!
Having to deal with failed settlements and the purchasers insistence that the liability lies with us during the business festive season was more than just inconvenience for us. And yet we were blessed to have you on board that quickly and straight into business. Frankly I was not hopeful that this fiasco could be resolved before court proceedings and you proved this was indeed possible.
Even though we mentally suffered a bit more than the penalty could justify, we are truly relieved this matter has come to an end.
I'm sure we will deal again, but hopefully not in the same situation.
Mr. Pickering is the most professional person I have come across in the industry. He worked tirelessly on my case, ensuring that I got the best possible outcome. I can recommend him wholeheartedly. He is always totally on top of everything, straight forward, diligent and pleasant. Mr. Pickering far exceeded my expectations with the level of service he provided, Experienced, tenacious and outcome oriented. A true professional.
Michael Tourkakes was an extremely insightful, strategic litigation lawyer. Regardless of the complexity of my matter, he was someone I know will consider not only legal strategy, but business practicalities in providing my legal options. His demeanor and personality enabled me to develop a trust and confidence in his advice, which I deemed critical. We thank him for all his hard work and we know he will always be highly recommended
I have been a client of Michael Pickering's for over 3 years now. As senior lawyer, Mr. Michael Pickering's knowledge and approach to complex legal matters is excellent. As a whole, the law firm is responsive and professional. I would recommend Michael Pickering to anyone who requires personalized and expert assistance in all matters legal.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Michael Pickering for his support in taking over my case at this stressful period in my life. His outstanding service combined with the professionalism and ability to guide and advise me to date has made this difficult process much easier to follow and understand. He has been extremely helpful and have delivered as promised,
I can't thank him enough for what he has done for me so far. Rest assured that I will be more than happy to recommend him to my friends in the future if they need legal advice and assistance.
I recently asked Michael Pickering to review a legal contract and he was extremely helpful in pointing out the clauses that were not vigorously written and explaining every detail with patience. Thus I would recommend Michael Pickering.
I would like to thank Michael Pickering and Judicate Lawyers for helping me with my conveyancing. He and the team provided me with a wonderful service. I would be happy to recommend Michael Pickering, Michael Tourkakes and the team to anyone looking for a great service.
Dear Michael T.
I just wanted to express my gratitude for all your assistance in helping things run smoothly during proceedings.
Your attention to detail and support throughout the whole process was beyond expectation and I can't thank you enough for everything. I really appreciated how you went out of your way to help me and enable me to understand each part of the process.
I wish you all the best for the future and would recommend your services to anyone in need.
Michael Pickering has been more than able to help me get my business pointing in the right direction with comprehensive advice and a 'down to business' approach. He also connected me with a fantastic accountant to help me stay on track. I am really grateful.
My wife and I would like to thank you for the outstanding service that you have given us today. Without your drive and dedication, our settlement could be delayed further. Your drive and dedication provided for our settlement showed that your clients come first. Well done and all the best.
Guru and Sigrid

We got a deserved result and it would not have happened without your help.
