Client Reviews

Daniel was patient, had excellent communication and seemed to really understand me and my concerns for my children and talked me through my many options. He kept me positive but also gave me realistic potential outcomes.I had previously been to see one other law firm where to be honest I felt like I was just a number and being passed done the line as I wasn’t important enough, so to find Daniel and to connect with him was refreshing.
Daniel was very helpful, he went above and beyond. He handled my matter with great professionalism and patience. It’s evident Daniel has an outlook to get the matter resolved in a timely and efficient matter. I would highly recommend Daniel.
I wish to thank Daniel Loreck of BBV for his outstanding legal expertise provided to me during my recently finalised Family Court property matter. What could have easily become an overwhelming experience, was made easier with Daniel’s ever calm, knowledgeable professionalism. For anyone thinking that standing up to a financial bully in Court is too hard, and feeling as though they have no chance, I say please don’t give up, discuss your options with Daniel. I’m proof that a satisfactory outcome truly is achievable even on a small budget. I am also very pleased to have come through the process with my integrity intact thanks to Daniel consistently side-stepping the ‘game-playing’ and antagonistic behaviour of the other party including their many attempts to financially oppress me within the system. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
We had already tried so many legal avenues and government departments for nearly 6 years because of our home had not been finished and our Builder closed his company. We originally saw Les Buchbinder, and he said that he can help us, but we had heard that before and just paid money for nothing. We thought we would give it a go, we had nothing to lose. Les was great, always in contact with us, always approachable, always letting us know any updates. Then he also got Thomas involved in our case. Thomas was also wonderful. Couldn’t have asked for a better team. In the end, Les and Thomas got us a fair and good outcome. Their pricing was very good too and up front, so you know what to expect. Nobody else could or would help us, just wanted to drain our savings account, but Les and Thomas actually cared.Thank you Les and Thomas. We were happy with all the advice and the overall friendliness of all the staff we came into contact with at BBV plus we were happy with the price!
We experienced a high level of professionalism however the great thing was the ease and simple way each issue was explained by Les & Arfa. We were not rushed. We felt relaxed and were able to discuss the everything at length. We were happy with all the advice and the overall friendliness of all the staff we came into contact with at BBV plus we were happy with the price!
A big thanks to Daniel Loreck and Karen Gilomen, since court everything has been great and my daughter is progressing amazingly well having both parents in her life.
