Selvaggio Lawyers were invaluable in helping me through a difficult time, after unfairly being restricted from seeing my children. I didn’t know where to start. I was dealing with lots of issues at that time and overwhelming emotions. They walked me through the process and made it easy. They answered my questions, no matter how trivial, and took time out of their day to attend to my enquiries.Joe
We have been involved with Selvaggio Lawyers for approximately ten years, almost on a daily basis, due to the high volume of conveyancing work they carry out on our behalf. Selvaggio Lawyers' service has been second to none, with all work carried out in an highly efficient and prompt manner and our dealings with all staff have shown them to be professional and willing to 'go the extra mile' as our legal representatives.Presida Constructions

I have worked with Gillian Leahy of Selvaggio Lawyers since January 2014 on the purchase, sale and assignment of more than 15 properties. The transactions have included several complex Option Deeds and Deeds of Assignment. Gillian’s dedication, professionalism and rapid turnaround of documents have many times made the difference between winning and losing a deal. I recommend Selvaggio Lawyers highly for any property-related matters.Brian DruryManaging Director, Westclaire Property Group
