“I recently engaged Rebecca for help with a legal matter. She was very professional, helpful and ensured I had full understanding of the upcoming proceedings and how they should be handled. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rebecca and the team at Hugo Law Group.”

“Damien and Umar were very gentle and understanding when talking with me. They were both empathetic and kind, making sure that I was following along with what they were saying. I never felt like I was asking a stupid question as they were very patient and willing to explain things clearly (especially legal jargon). As this was my first time dealing with a legal matter I was very appreciative of their attitudes and never felt uncomfortable. I would definitely recommend both these lawyers.”

“I have been represented by Hugo Law Group twice now, and both times I have been extremely satisfied with their ability to represent and carry out my legal matters. The solicitors were sympathetic to my predicament, and I found great comfort in knowing that I was not merely a case to them. They were quick and efficient, with great communication and considerate of my suggestions and questions, all for a very reasonable price that was not obfuscated in any way. I can happily say that I would immediately seek them out or recommend them to anyone seeking honest, solid representation.”

“Hi Stephanie, After the court case I was so exhausted that I neglected to thank you properly for getting me a not guilty verdict. I really wasn’t guilty. You were an enormous part in convincing the court of the truth. I’ll see you in a couple of weeks. All I want is to avoid a criminal conviction. Nothing else matters. Cheers.”

I would highly recommend Tom Taylor of Hugo Law Group. He is diligent, professional, tenacious, informative, responsive, calm and dedicated.

His representational skills in the court room and with his clients are second to none. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is definitely the person you should get to represent you.

“Good Morning Carol, Just a quick note to say it’s now over a month since YOU got us that fantastic result and it’s provided the best nights of sleep for over a year. The night sweats have disappeared – thank you so very much!”

“Karen, We have had a number of talented and skilled barristers but they were all chosen on your recommendation. Watching your work ethic and quality compared to our opponents we can see that we are really fortunate to have had you as our legal adviser. Win or lose we out-performed them all with your help.  Thank you so much.”

“I could not have been happier, or more satisfied, in my experience with Damien. He conducted himself with professionalism, punctuality and endless compassion.

I’m so grateful to have had Damien to lead me through such an awful period of my life, and I had full confidence in him every step of the way. Not only did I believe my future was going to be protected in every capacity he could, but I felt emotionally supported throughout the process.

Every interaction with Damien was fortifying, and I’m endlessly grateful for the trust I was able to place in him. I cannot recommend his services highly enough. I’m eternally grateful.

Thank you Damien, and to the rest of the team at Hugo Law Group!”
