Testimonials

SATISFIED CLIENTS

Absolutely fate

Dear Tania

I cannot thank you and your team enough for the work undertaken to have my charges completely withdrawn during recent matters I was facing with the ATO. It was absolute fate that I contacted your office, but it was the best decision I could have made. From the very first phone call, you treated me with kindness and respect, despite the situation I had found myself in.

When one thinks of a Solicitor, it is easy to go straight to the stereotypical movie character with images of someone who is selfish, greedy and rude. But you, Tania, are the epitome of thoughtful, generous and compassionate and I will forever be in your debt for the kind and considered way you supported me from afar.

I highly recommend Waterhouse Lawyers to others who may be facing overwhelming situations regarding tax litigation, although, I hope to never require your services again!

Kindest Regards Tania,
Leisa F.

Fantastic knowledge and professionalism

 

Good Morning Paul,

Just wanted to pass on our appreciation for assisting us today and supporting our company with the ATO interview, your professionalism and knowledge was fantastic, thank you.

 

We understand it’s still along way away but we feel comfortable that we have selected the right professionals for the long task ahead.

Compassion & understanding

Tania, again I want to thank you not just for your outstanding advice but also your compassion and understanding towards the whole situation. What you do is change people’s lives for the better in many ways.

Thanks soooo very much again.

Fantastic help

OMG – it’s the truth – you told the truth – that’s a strategy?! I LOVE it – I’m so happy – however the [government agency] responds will be OK by me. It’s perfect, you have made sense of a time in my life and behaviour and responses I didn’t understand.

The reasoning and explanation in your letter is more valuable to me personally than the [agency’s] outcome. A win would be great, but no matter what happens, I can definitely take heed of this, develop better insight, work on improving my response to confronting and conflicting events and have a happier life, which is and must be the ultimate goal.

Seriously grateful and overwhelmingly impressed by your ability to nail the issues in such a way that I will have peace of mind no matter what the outcome.

So very Grateful.  Five Star Service in tax matter

After 13 years of not being aware of it, the ATO advised me of an issue… a financially crippling, life changing kind of issue.  Their timing was exceptional, with massive cutbacks at work, my employment future was uncertain, and a wife currently going through IVF the additional stress was almost unbearable.

I spent almost 6 months attempting to obtain the information I needed from the ATO with very little success.

In desperation I contacted Tania, and within a day of engaging her services she had cut to the core of the problem, obtained the information I had not been able to and explained clearly to me what the situation was.  Within a week she had investigated the options available to me, identified a recommended course of action and put me contact with the relevant people to assist.

Tania was extremely professional and empathetic, kept me updated constantly on her progress and achieved a favourable outcome.  My wife and I are so very grateful and it is an enormous relief to be able to put this behind us.

I would highly recommend Tania to anyone having tax issues of any kind.
