Hi Russell,

I would like to say thank you for handling the estate of my father D.A for at least 18 months. Local Lawyers has handled this case very well and I am deeply grateful with the outcome. These past 18 months were extremely tough and difficult for all of us.

I would like to acknowledge the amazing work that Nam put into the case. He was challenged…throughout this entire period and only remained calm and professional throughout. This made me and my family feel at ease, knowing that the case was handled by someone who was experienced to deal with these challenges. Nam displayed amazing communication skills and often would follow up with calls and emails which made me feel very included in the work he was doing behind the scenes. He was always clear and concise with his emails and would explain things we didn’t understand and needed clarity on. Nam and I built a client connection and I felt I could always contact him without hesitancy.

I hope Nam’s hard work and professionalism in law, is highly recognised by you and Local Lawyers. I will definitely be recommending Local Lawyers to anyone who needs assistance with legal matters.


Hi Sally,

Thanks to you for your guidance throughout this process, and for managing to answer all of my ongoing nagging questions, couldn’t have done it without you.

My appreciation goes out to Russell also for having always looked after my aunty and uncle, please pass on my thanks.

Thanks for your assistance over the past couple of months – invaluable.

M.K. and M.H

Again thank you all so much for making this difficult time so much easier.


To Local Lawyers, I want to thank you for all your assistance over the past 18 months, as you managed the Estate of my late mother. You always returned calls promptly, paid accounts quickly and in the early days, took time to listen to my concerns during what was an extremely emotional time for me. Once again I want to thank you for your patience, support and dedication to your work, which made my job easier.


Russell, Thank you for a job very well done. It has been an absolute pleasure having you on board for this amazing journey into the next very exciting phase of my life.


There have been a number of issues that have arisen with the settlement of my unit, caused either by the vendor or my bankers. Kate has been exceptional in her responsiveness and proactivity in dealing with these matters. It must give you great confidence in knowing you have committed team members working with you to deliver great service to your clients. Pass on my personal appreciation to Kate and thanks for a professional job well done.


Dear Steve, a heart-warming thank you to you, your team and Russell. You all were very professional and your timely actions were very much appreciated. Wishing you all the best for the future, and know that you all have made me a very relieved and happy person.


Good morning David. S & I would like to express our sincere thanks for the manner in which you and your staff settled the disposal of our former property. it has been a most hectic and frantic period for S packing up and cleaning the house at Williamstown and then arranging the distribution of the furniture here. We would like to wish you all a very Merry Xmas and a bright and prosperous New Year. Our very best regards.

B.L. & S.L.

Dear David, first of all many thanks to yourself, Kate and Helen for your kind and efficient assistance in the recent conveyancing matters. We were totally delighted with everything each of you did and commend your professionalism.

A.B. & G.B.

Hi, just wanted to say a big thanks for making the settlement so easy. it was one of the easiest processes I have ever experienced!


Would you please pass on to Russell and David Cocks our thanks for their professional services in the purchase. Also for the clarity and manner in which they helped us to feel confident in transferring the mortgage funds and acting on our behalf.

G.A. & I.A.

Thank you so much. I would also wish to thank you all for the professionalism your organisation given to myself and my partner. It has restored my faith in your industry. I am very happy to recommend your company to anyone who asks without hesitation.


Now that everything is complete, we want to formally convey our thanks and gratitude for everything you have both done.

Your assistance throughout, has helped make a difficult situation somewhat easier. Your compassionate understanding shown to Mum was very much appreciated by A and me, and Mum always found her visits left her with a clear understanding of the situation and what needed to be done.

Your capable and efficient management, including your clear communications and prompt response times meant that we all had complete confidence in your advice.

We would not hesitate to seek your advice on other matters or to recommend your firm to others, our experience has been entirely positive.

Once again, our sincere and grateful thanks


Dear Mr Cocks,

I am writing to express my deepest thanks to two of your team, Nam Vo and Stephen Kirby.

Since April 2022, when I had my first appointment with Nam to start the probate process for my late aunt, I have received expert guidance, advice and support. Throughout a longer than anticipated journey, I have been able to clearly understand the law around probate, my responsibilities and also how to manage each step.

What cannot be expressed more highly is the deep level of care and support for me as a client, navigating an unknown situation which has been incredibly stressful. You may be aware that my aunt’s will was challenged and ended up in the County Court in mid-August. Stephen’s advice, and selection of barrister for the case, was exemplary. As was the amount of work in the weeks (and weekend) leading up to the court case! Nam was able to attend the first morning of court to be an additional support which was very much appreciated.

The countless emails, phone calls and meetings have always resulted in me feeling even more supported, and importantly for me, my position was heard and understood.

I am so pleased that my aunt and uncle had their wills prepared and kept with your offices, as I now know I have lawyers that I can trust with my own legal affairs. Nam has already advised me that Stephen will be able to help with the guardianship application for my mother who has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimers.

I have already recommended Local Lawyers to a colleague who needed a second opinion on probate and will continue to recommend your team to anyone who asks.

With sincere gratitude


To Russell Cocks

I would just like to let you know how grateful we are to have Nam’s expertise in dealing with my parents’ estate. Having lost my dad in 2020 Nam was very competent in helping my mum change over names and account and titles for the house and follow the arrangements that my Dad had made in his will. Unfortunately in December 2022 we lost my mum and found ourselves in need of Nam’s services again nothing was too much trouble he followed mum’s requests to the letter. Helping me to get the best deal for their unit and reminding me what to ask for from the agents.

Nam always made sure that I knew what and when things were being done. He is always available for confirmation of procedures and returned all calls and enquiries within a prompt time frame.

We would just like to thank Nam for all his patience and all he has done for us through this stressful time. He was always calm and happy, he explained all the processes clearly and confidently and didn’t rush us through to make decisions. His confidence knowledge and professionalism shone through with every decision that had to be made.

My parents would have been very happy knowing that they made the right decision years ago to get Nam to handle their estate.

I would highly recommend Nam to anyone needing legal advice. He is very easy to talk to and very diligent in his work.

Thankyou again for everything.



To Russell Cocks

Hi Russell, a brief note of appreciation for all the work Nam has put in while probating my mother’s estate. So far it has taken almost 18 months, due to the delayed sale of the family home. This is now under contract. Nam was extremely helpful in facilitating this process. His advice relating the options available proved very useful and assisted with the optimisation of the sale. I rate his advice and that of the company with respect to an adverse possession matter also very highly.

Your sincerely


Thank you Nam for all your expert help. You were such a gret help winding up my mother’s estate. I would highly recommend Nam to anyone needing a lawyer.
