“As a first home buyer I had no idea what to expect. AWS Legal Senior Associate Allanah Cunningham made the process easy to understand. There was consistent communication every step of the way. Allanah went above and beyond to ensure the house was secured in my name, right up until the final minute.  I could not recommend AWS enough. Supportive, compassionate and genuine throughout the whole process!”

- Emma

Allanah Cunningham and her legal exec were the most professional team to deal with during what can be a very stressful time.  Allanah and team were so excellent at translating complex legal language to simple, understandable facts.  At every single stage, I was more than kept up-to-date as well as the team making sure that my EPOAs and Will was up to date as appropriate for someone buying their first house.  Whether it is your first property and you need someone who will guide you through the house buying process with kind, thorough support; or as an investor with complex property Trusts – Allanah and team will handle it with ease.”

- Nicole

“I have had the pleasure of dealing with Tim Marshall both for personal legal matters as well as building a Charitable Trust that benefits the wider community. Tim’s attention to the cause, determination to get a result and calmness throughout really highlights the professionalism, manner, skillset and talent that Tim holds. Tim’s integrity to deliver results, efficiency to get information and his emphasis on customer service really showcases his passion and focus. The way Tim also brings his team into the understanding and conversation showed me his leadership, and passion for mentoring. Tim’s passion for what he does certainly shines through and I do not hesitate to recommend him to family, friends and acquaintances.”
