"I would definitely recommend Robert Montes at Rouse Lawyers"
We approached Rouse Lawyers due to a shareholder dispute that we needed assistance with. This dispute was very upsetting to us as it involved other family members. Robert Montes was more than helpful with this tricky situation and we were able to solve all issues quite swiftly. Robert was very professional and was able to offer sound advice that greatly improved the outcome. I really liked the way in which he made us feel comfortable with talking to him and then the way in which he then dealt with and executed solutions. I would definitely recommend Robert Montes at Rouse lawyers to people who are looking for assistance and in particular with shareholder disputes. The experience as a whole was very positive and we were able to settle the dispute with minimum fuss.

Michelle obviously had a wealth of experience and she quickly helped diffuse a potentially larger legal situation to achieve a favourable outcome. Thanks again Michelle.”
