Fisher Dore Lawyers have represented me in a very important case over the last three years. In all that time I have found them to be always informative, efficient and understanding. A very professional company, always available to me for any questions or advice and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone needing effective legal assistance.

I’ve prosecuted against Nick Dore and I’m a fan of his work. If I ever needed a Defence solicitor in my corner, I’d choose him... what can I say, the man is brilliant.

We can't express how grateful we are for all your kindness, support and generosity during this difficult time. With sincere thanks.

Thank you Fisher Dore for all you have done to release the burden we have been living with...well done.

Just want to say thank you for all your help and effort you have put in. You go above and beyond. I appreciate everything you and your team have done for me in helping better my life!

Thanks again…for going above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. I am so grateful I can now get on the right track and move forward with my life.

Thank-you for all the hard work you have put into my case and your continued support throughout the last few months. I appreciate everything you have done for me.

Thank you for fighting for me and for doing such a great job. Please pass on my gratitude to the team.

Sean Gibbs provided an amazing service at an affordable rate. My matter was a very complex criminal proceeding lasting 16 months. I could not be any happier with the results. I strongly recommend Sean Gibbs from Fisher Dore to anyone facing criminal charges.

I can't tell you how grateful I am for this and how much weight you have taken off of my shoulders.

After talking to Fisher Dore Lawyers, I felt like an enormous weight had been lifted from my shoulders.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work . I truly appreciate everything you have done. I owe my freedom to you. Thank you!

Thank you for your compassion, dedication and hard work throughout this difficult time. This has been life changing for me and I can't imagine how I would have got through this without your support, professionalism and expertise. I'm so grateful for your efforts and the great work you did on my behalf. Thanks again for going above and beyond, and doing everything you could to win my case.

I just wanted to put into writing, just how profoundly grateful I am for the sound advice & skilful representation you provided. The outcome you secured for me was better than I could have dared to wish for. I owe you a debt of gratitude.

Mohammed - Google Review

I just wanted to say thank you very much for your handling of my case. I am very pleased with the outcome as well as your professionalism in communication and encouragement in my difficult time. Once again, thank you very much.

Just wanted to thank you again. Brodie has been courteous, considerate, patient and extremely thorough; she has done a wonderful job. I’m really grateful.

Cathy

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for us and in particular, the compassion and empathy you showed throughout this entire process. We will never forget the sterling job you did for us from the moment we first engaged with you. It is a credit to you and the team at Fisher Dore to have reached such a positive outcome in such unusual circumstances and one to be commended. I cannot express just how important your legal assistance and guidance has been. Without it, I fear the outcome wouldn’t have been as favourable as it was and for this, I am forever in your debt.
