"We first approached Fionna to assist us with reviewing our domestic building contract. It was important to us that we have a clear understanding of the contract terms and conditions so that our interests were protected. It was evident to us that Fionna was extremely knowledgeable of the operations of the building industry. Along the way we discovered there were issues with the house design which made the build unachievable. The builder did not take responsibility around these issues, and as a result, our relationship with the builder had completely broken down. Fionna negotiated a successful outcome and we were able to terminate the contract with the builder and recover all monies paid by us. Had we not consulted with Fionna in regards to contract review this could have potentially been a very costly experience for us. We will not hesitate to engage Fionna’s services for any future build.”

“I recommend Fionna without hesitation. She provides practical, easy to understand legal advice and has an incredible capacity to restore a certain calm to your life whilst you're dealing with sometimes stressful legal matters. My husband and I have engaged Fionna's services to assist us with two matters since November 2014. Firstly, Fionna was recommended to us after we found ourselves in a dispute with a builder... Fionna navigated the complexities of our case in a manner that took the weight off our shoulders and left us feeling confident that we were in good hands. She offered us a number of strategies designed to resolve the dispute and explained the pros and cons of each approach. She executed our instructions flawlessly and kept us informed every step of the way. The matter was resolved in a timely manner to our complete satisfaction without having to escalate the matter to QCAT or any other jurisdiction. 

Following that, we engaged Fionna to undertake a contract review before entering into a contract with a builder to construct our new home. Fionna provided us with practical, easy to follow advice in plain English which enabled us to successfully navigate the challenges of building a new home with the confidence of knowing the potential pitfalls and where to find them.” I wouldn't hesitate to engage Fionna should the need arise again the future.”
