Client Reviews

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.
Les is a wonderful lawyer. He has an amazing grasp of the English language and is always polite and grounding to speak to. With Les there are never problems to which there aren't solutions. And he's always up for the challenge. More than this, and it may seem weird to say this, whenever I meet Les he makes me want to be a good man. He's a real humanitarian and inspires the best in me. For that reason I always look forward to seeing him again.
Les was very professional and always kept my interest at the forefront of his mind. He is thorough and clear in his communications. He is also very supportive and I like how he runs meetings, providing all the options and helping sort out which ones are for me.
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!
