Good Afternoon

We cannot be your support person.

Are you a member of the union?

No

If you can't help me to have a support person, I don't think it's necessary.
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 10 months ago

Good Afternoon

Can I ask are the allegations true?

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No. I was alleged of saying " f**ker lazy " to a staff.
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 10 months ago

Do you have any friends that you trust that can come with you?

The person that comes with you cannot say anything. If not then you have to ask for time to get legal advise and a solicitor to attend at the meeting. This is not unreasonable.

The law society of QLD can refer you to solicitors that are close to you.

Their website is as follows

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
