What our clients have to say
I would like to pass on our sincere thanks to the MBA team, and in particular to Tessa Calver-James. Throughout our dispute application Tessa displayed genuine understanding and compassion, and she always advised us in a professional, reliable manner. As you are well aware our matter was drawn out over a number of years for reasons beyond our control, and as difficult and frustrating as it was for us at times support and guidance from MBA never wavered as we worked toward the end goal. I would personally like to acknowledge your good self (Clayton) for your belief and encouragement, and for giving me the confidence to pursue this matter initially. As for Tessa, she was always available to reach out to when any concerns or issues arose, and was always empathetic and on hand to offer constructive advice and support which was invaluable and measured. Lastly my wife and I would like to thank you all for achieving such a successful outcome with all orders sought being granted to us! MBA have literally changed our lives.Paul & Helena
Feeling extremely grateful for the advice I received from Ben at MBA. It reminds me of the indispensable value of great customer service, which was also paired with professional and relevant advice for my situation. I will definitely be recommending their services to others and feel like their moto "for life" has now become mine in relation to working with this firm for future legal matters. Thankyou so much, so grateful for the help I received in my time of need.Jana Klintoukh
My life changed in November 2017 when I had a fall at work which left me with a catastrophic spinal cord injury. The obvious changes to my life meant that I required the help of a legal advisor to help me in any claim for compensation I might have been entitled to. This area is a minefield but I was very lucky to be pointed in the direction of White Jordin as part of the MBA Group. The whole team were incredible, the detail they went into, the drive and passion and the empathy towards myself were not only refreshing, but gave me the belief that they would get me the best result. And boy did they deliver, the compensation I received was far in excess of anything I could have dreamed of, and at the end during that mediation process Mitchell and his team were in the room with me, making a very tense day rather more than I could have hoped. Not only did I get a fantastic result which has set me up for the rest of my life, but the legal bill was way less than I had been expecting. So please, don’t look any further than this team, nobody will get you a better deal, nobody will be more honest and I regard the team as my go to forever. Thankyou so much, thankyou Mitchell, Rosemary, Chloe and the wonderful Matthew Holmes(barrister).- Mike B Personal Injuries client
I received excellent professional service from MBA lawyers. I highly recommend James to give you his best advice.Sheryl G - 5 star Google review
I cannot thank Joelene enough for resolving and finalising my family case in such a short time frame! I had been battling my case on my own for a year. Then I had a family friend recommend Joelene. I had my doubts at first, as I did not believe my case would be resolved prior to my fourth court hearing. But Joelene did exactly that! In just over one month, she had everything signed and finalised (no court appearance required ). I can not recommend Joelene highly enough for all family matters. Her service is above and beyond my expectations and were all at a reasonable price. I wish I had of known about you a year ago Joelene. Thank you again!CC
My experience has been somewhat refreshing - not only do I receive the same or better advice, it is without doubt that the service is somewhat more personable. With businesses across varying industries I have engaged MBA to handle matters of litigation/mediation, commercial leasing, franchising and employment law. MBA has shown me that they have a genuine care and concern, they always invest the time to understand my needs and wants, ensuring the outcome is the correct one for me. MBA treat me more like family than just a client and I do go out of my way to recommend them to anyone that might require any type of legal service.Aaron Morris The Morris Group
Marital separation is difficult, complex and sad, With absolute care and nurturing, Joelene guided me through the process with a professional gentleness that I have not experienced with the legal industry before. She openly and carefully explained all options and choices, she shared her experience for successful outcomes and at no point did I feel pressured to make a decision. We were able to achieve an outcome that allows us to move forward with both our personal and financial future. I highly recommend Joelene and the team at MBA without hesitationTB
As the Managing Partner of one of the Gold Coast largest privately owned financial advice firms, I have had the pleasure of dealing with many of the leading professional services businesses on the Gold Coast. And I have no hesitation in saying that MBA Lawyers are as good as it gets when it comes to service that is personal and professional, advice that is reliable and accurate as well as strategy based on experience and knowledge. Our firm have personally utilised Matt and the MBA Commercial Team for our acquisitions and mergers, and I could not fault the commitment and passion they always bring to the table, ensuring that the desired outcome is delivered...on time and on budget.Client
You have no idea how much of a relief this is to me and am so grateful to have you settle this in such a short period of time! Thank you so much for all your hard work to resolve this matter so promptly. I am extremely happy with this outcome. Thanks again.DA
James and Theresa provided fantastic service, delivering frequent updates, providing clarity where needed and were always professional. Thanks again MBA Lawyers!Peter D - 5 star Google review
In my current search for a Management Rights complex I have extensively used the support, advice and coaching of MBA Lawyers. It has been through their actions and support that my wife and I have become comfortable and encouraged to enter into the world of Management Rights. In previous roles I have had the opportunity of being associated with both very large and small legal firms and yet in my experience, neither of these have been able to demonstrate the professionalism, empathy and access to experts that I have receive in my dealings with MBA. My wife and I also have found MBA’s relaxed and approachable manner to be rather comforting and unique within the legal profession. I, without reservation, strongly recommend the services of MBA Lawyers and would encourage anyone considering the need for legal advice or support to investigate the services of this law firm.Derek Angel
I would have to say that MBA Lawyers has been the most ethical and reliable law firm that I’ve dealt with and would certainly recommend them whether it be conveyancing on a property purchase or to a large scale developer that is reliant on market expertise, vital industry relationships and best practice regarding property law.Tyler Scott Rhapsody Surfers Paradise
