Excellent service from a knowledgable and approachable lawyer

Melanie spent time to understand my position and to provide some very helpful intial advice. She supported me with sound professional advice throughout and dealt directly with my employer at the approriate points in the settlement agreement process.
As a result, I was able to negotiate a significantly more favourable settlement than first offered and am happy that I have entered into an agreement that protects my interests in the future.
I would happily recommend Melanie, who is approachable, professional, effecient and a good person to have in your corner when the need arises.

Friendly and professional service

Even from my first request for a quote, Melanie was by far the friendliest response I received, which I valued very highly given the stressful nature of needing the service. Throughout the process she was very informative l, kept me in the loop, made sure I knew what my options and the implications of things were, and was just generally nice to me. It made the whole process a lot smoother and less stressful.

Fantastic Advice & Expertise

I contacted Melanie after she was recommended by a friend as I'm in dispute with my Emloyers about a Settlement Agreement that wasn't expected & is very unfair, more than likely illegal. Melanie has been of fabulous support & is very knowledgeable, professional & empathetic.

I would recommend her in a heart beat to any one who has Employment law issues.

Fantastic

Melanie took me through my redundancy settlement agreement & was absolutely professional. Melanie was reassuring, concise & clear, explaining complex legal concepts to me in a way that was easily understood. Melanie also took the care to ask me how a recent job interview had gone, which I told her about in brief passing.

Thanks Melanie, I really appreciate your help!

Responsive, thorough and compassionate

Melanie was recommended to me by a friend. From beginning to end, she was responsive, thorough and clear with her advice and looked after my interests so I got the best possible outcome. She was also very compassionate and empathetic during a really difficult period - a rare quality when you are negotiating legal documents!

Pleasant, clear, prompt & helpful

The title says it all. Melanie Best gave me clear advice prior to engaging her and was very clear about her services, helping me avoid additional costs and unprofitable lines of argument. She was very prompt and drove my employment agreement to a successful conclusion. She came recommended and I see why!

So I have been using Melanie Best's services in both my professional and personal capacities now for the past 12 years and would not consider using anyone else.
Melanie's incredible professionalism and understanding of complex employment contract discussions is just second to none and I now go into various contract discussions knowing that I have a true industry expert on my side and there for me should anything contentious ever arise.
I would highly recommend Melanie to anyone !!!!
