At a time of emotional upheaval it is refreshing to have people to take time to listen. I am only at the start of possible legal action but I have gained more knowledge and security in relation to this action than before. At another legal form I was charged $300 for one hours advice. I did not realise that firms like D/S offer the first appointment free. Thank Again Bruce
Very impressed with the quality of contact and the speed, even Trans-Tasman. Getting to the heart of the matter swiftly and providing sound advice and opinion and guidance for the time-being, Justeen is empathetic as well as professional. I will be back in touch when my matter needs more attention. Thanks Justeen and Alex. L Smith, NZL.
I cannot recommend highly enough the services of both Justeen and Matthew during my recent experience as I dealt wiht my late fathers estate, Justeen was both supportive and kind, she helped me through the most challenging days, never judging me, only ever looking out for my interests, she cwas not only both supportive but also direct and that is what I needed during this process, in the end she delivered an excellent result for myself and my brother and I cannot thank her enough for her kindness, thoughtfulness and wisdom.

Excellent firm. Justeen Dormer was extremely responsive and gave excellent advice regarding our complex family situation. The initial consultation was free and involved quite a bit of Justeen's time in determining the best course of action for our situation. I can't speak highly enough of her. This is a firm you can use with confidence.
Dormer Stanhope took on my Will dispute. Matthew Hamlin advised and guided me through the process. Although Covid-19 prevented us from ever meeting, he was very thorough in his explanations and provided me with support. Thank you Justeen and Matthew for helping me to achieve a desired outcome.
Recently I engaged Justeen and her team for their services. My experience has been exceedingly positive, they are professional and exceptional, I would thoroughly recommend them. After speaking to a few lawyers, Justeen was the one who gave us the best information and confidence. From day one we have been treated as a priority and kept informed each step of the way. The process has been seamless and we couldn’t have achieved a better outcome. We feel very grateful to have found Justeen and the team.
Sometimes life throws you curve balls and having a supportive legal team is your best tool in your arsenal.
When my father passed away, I learnt that everything was left to my stepmother. Although this wasn’t surprising, what did hurt me was the fact that when my stepmother later passed, she had left everything to my two stepsisters as opposed to splitting the estate equally.
Shocked with the news, I contacted my stepsisters to try to resolve the issue, as surely there was some misunderstanding. In response, I received very hostile emails and insulting monetary offers through their lawyers.
With Dormers support, I brought a claim against my stepmother’s estate in Tasmania as an eligible person. To much relief, Dormers were able to resolve the matter for me without needing to attend mediation. In fact, Dormers negotiated a settlement over 7 times what I was being offered, something I never would have received without their help. I cannot thank them enough for their support and guidance throughout this process and highly recommend them.
I found Dormers to be understanding, prepared to listen and appreciate my position. I found Dormers to be dependable and honest. My case was settled quickly and easily after a short period of negotiations. My costs seemed fair and reasonable.
Absolutely fantastic service. Great outcome and it didn’t cost me as much as I thought. Very pleased!
I'm very appreciative and grateful for all the work and support yourself and your team have provided. I will absolutely recommend your firm.
