I had a complex divorce and my husband was horrible. Sukriti Bhakti assisted me in every way and my divorce was granted.

Sukriti is very professional and very detailed in her work. She has not only given me peace of mind but also ongoing support so that I can get through all my complex legal matters. I will definitely recommend her to friends and family in need of assistance in family law matters.

I came to Martin with a bundle of Legal speak documents that needed to be simplified and in the end rectified so I and my family could get on with our lives after the passing of my husband / their father.

After lots of reading and writing by all parties we are now free to move on with our future. Martin and his team welcomed myself and my family into his professional team with respect and understanding.

Happy customers THANKYOU Martin.

E & A Lawyers recently handled a commercial lease agreement for me. They looked after the negotiations and contract very efficiently. What impressed me was that I never had to chase them for a progress report, they were ahead of me, on the case and keeping me updated all the way through the process. I certainly recommend this company.

I can highly recommend E&A Lawyers in Mona Vale for the handling of Estate matters. From my very first contact with the Company, I found every member of the team to be very knowledgeable, understanding and thorough in coordinating all my legal needs. 

At all times I was treated with consideration and care as they worked above and beyond to assist me to get the desired outcome.

My mother’s passing was such a difficult time for me, especially throughout the Covid period of 2021. I was completely supported throughout the whole process by E&A Lawyers. They were always accessible, there was clear communication and compassion, everything went smoothly and speedily.

I could not recommend them highly enough. I also used E&A Lawyers for a different matter one year prior in the sale of a property and experienced the same as above.

Hi Leanne….

Both of us would like to express our gratitude to E and A for managing both Mary's and George's matters for what seems like many years now. But our greatest thanks go to you for being our primary contact all along. All the best to you for Christmas and the future Leanne.

Professional, great service and very generous with their time. Our estate settlement was executed with ease. Also, JP services were accessible during lockdown when many others weren't.

I was introduced to Chris and the team through a former colleague. 

As a first time buyer, I was extremely green when it came to buying property, but from day 1 Chris was amazing. His advice was always clear and concise, and his responsiveness was second to none. 

Covid threw a few bumps in the road, but the support from E&A Lawyers was always there.

If you’re looking for a friendly, professional lawyer then Chris is most definitely the one to use.

Thanks to Chris, Lynne, and the team!

We would both like to sincerely thank you for all your help. To the uninitiated, estate law is impenetrable, and you helped us understand it, and feel a lot more confident about the process.

E&A Lawyers handled our family's matters in an exemplary manner. Our matriarch had passed away and E&A were her lawyers. We were already impressed with how they treated her and were able to attend to her needs in person and on the phone. Their attention to detail, responsiveness, thoroughness and transparency were excellent. They handled everything with care and consideration through all requirements pre and post probate. We highly recommend them!

We have already thanked Lynne for her assistance in finalising this acquisition for us, but I also wanted to pass on our thanks to you.

EA lawyers have made all our transactions very straight forward over the years and while I think we will be doing more selling than purchasing from now on(!), we will continue to use your services and recommend you to our friends and colleagues.

Regards - C & H

Over several decades my parents were clients of E&A Lawyers for property and Estate related matters. More recently E&A Lawyers assisted family in dealing with property matters in relation to the transition from retirement living to aged care and then Estate & Probate related matters. All dealings with E&A Lawyers have been extremely professional & carried out in a timely manner with all staff displaying exceptional interpersonal skills & courtesy at all times. E&A Lawyers are highly recommended.

Dear Martin, so many thanks for your time and patience yesterday.  Somehow in this strange time, I had been worried about making sure legal matters were up to date etc.  However I actually enjoyed the time, as you were so patient – I know I do talk too much!

Thank you again for your interest, and I feel very confident about the work of E&A Lawyers.

Hi Bridget,

I would like to thank you for your assistance throughout this process. You have been very professional and your advice and help has been very much appreciated.

I will be arranging a will at some time soon once this is sorted…in the next 3 weeks.

What a pleasure to deal with E and A! Can you say you enjoyed dealing with your lawyer? Well I did. They always replied promptly to my questions and gave helpful advice. The complexities of some of the paper work became straightforward with their expert advice. They handled my Power of Attorney responsibilities that I had for a dear friend, then arranged enduring guardianship as her life slipped away. When I then had duties as executor of her estate they were right with me as I liquidated her assets and arranged distribution to her beneficiaries. Their help enabled me to honor my commitments to my friend before she died that I would see it all through exactly how she wanted it to be. Thanks to a great team. Rob Allaburton

We have used Lauren for a house sale, purchase and estate planning.  She is extremely professional, communicative, knowledgeable and great to deal with.  Everyone at E & A lawyers I have spoken to has also been the same. It is a great company to work with and I highly recommend Lauren and the company to anyone needing legal advice and would definitely contact her again if we need anything else.  Thank you Lauren!

Can’t give big enough compliment on the professionalism of Chris and the rest of the team. Very thorough and attentive to all my needs. Legal matters can already be stressful and confusing and this was all out to rest by E&A Lawyers.

Mr Christopher Alfonso from E&A Lawyers has provided my husband and I professional estate planning advice, our Wills and other legal documents. Sadly, my husband recently passed away and I felt very relieved to know that Chris was able to act on my behalf for the grant of Probate and the administration of my husband's Estate.

My husband and I were buying a property in June 2020 and we needed the conveyancing to be carried out. We had dealt with E&A Lawyers with a previous property purchase and we approached them again. This time we had Chris Alphonso attend to our needs where previously his father Martin looked after us. Chris was professional and very capable and we completed to settlement in record time. Apart from being in Chris’ capable hands, we were impressed by the fact that every call to the office was dealt with in a professional, capable and expeditious manner. Whatever legal requirements we may have in the future, E&A Lawyers will be our first port of call. Martin and Margot Rathbone Bayview

Chris was outstanding. His professionalism, attention to detail, responsiveness and communication were brilliant. They were honest and fair with their price and helped to ensure my business sale went smoothly (despite the many many challenges).

I understood that I must have a formalised Will, my Sister died intestate and the hassle it caused our family was horrendous. Many recognise the importance of Power of Attorney too however, Chris helped us put together the overlooked and just as essential Enduring Guardianships. An Enduring Guardianship enables me to select someone I trust to make decisions about my care and living arrangements should I ever become incapacitated and unable to decide for myself. Get Chris to explain how an Enduring Guardianship only comes into effect if or when you lose your capacity, and how it’s only be effective during the period you are. It may never become operational; However, it is a good way to plan for unforeseen situations like the current pandemic.

We have used E&A Lawyers for over 35yrs now, and before that time E&A Lawyers assisted my Mother with her Estate Planning needs. They have assisted us in a variety of situations: Co Ownership Agreements, Business Structure advice, and the setting up of our Wills and Health Care Directives. Throughout this time all of the team at E&A have demonstrated a very professional response and have always given us great advice as well as showing care and compassion at all times.
