Client Testimonials

Brien Leibinger took much of the mystery out of our Estate Planning process through clear communication (verbal and written) and frequent use of hand drawn white board flow charts. This made it much easier for us to understand the process and options with our reasonably complex personal and business interests. Brien cuts through a lot of the legal jargon and put it into layman’s terms for us. We finished the process very happy knowing that we have done best we could do by our survivors with documents we are confident reflect our wishes.

Rob and Annie Webber - Coffee Works Pty Ltd

Brien is fantastic!!! ... We have always found his work to be of a very high standard. Brien’s correspondence is fast and efficient. He is extremely thorough and takes great pride in his work. We have always found his advice to accurate and insightful. Brien has always been very easy to communicate with. He doesn’t leave us behind with legal terminology that we don’t understand. We plan on keeping Brien as our legal advisor and we believe we would have to go a long way to find an equal. We would highly recommend Brien Leibinger Lawyers to both business owners and any individuals in need of a very good lawyer.

Sir Peter Barter. GCL, OBE, Kt - Melanesian Tourist Services Ltd

I cannot thank you enough for your wisdom and excellent advice during the process of reviewing, updating and redrafting the multiple documents within my Estate. The legal complexities of the various documents were clearly explained and I felt comfortable in requesting multiple changes to the drafts ensuring their integrity and that the outcomes in each of the documents was exactly what I wanted and could be easily understood in plain English rather than legal jargon.

Patsy Bjerregaard AM

I feel extremely fortunate to have been referred to Brien Leibinger. From the beginning, Brien has been such a diligent and supportive solicitor, especially during the complex execution of my mother’s will. Brien won my trust and respect very quickly and he can be counted on to get the job done and achieve the best possible outcome in a timely and proficient manner. It has been an absolute pleasure to have Brien as my legal representative. I highly recommend him to my friends and colleagues.
