"Thank you so much but what wonderful team work...I couldn't have done it without you all and especially believing in me."                                                                                                     

                                                                                                                                 Client Testimonial, March 2017


"...how rapt you were my Counsel and how you helped give me courage through my weak, dark days..."

                                                                                                                          Client Testimonial, November 2016


"I was very fortunate to have Steven as my lawyer for a family court matter. I found him reassuring, competent, understanding and compassionate and also focused on the issues at hand. He was efficient and could draw on his many years of experience when answering my various questions and concerns


Even when he had another matter to attend to, the staff member who acted for me was equally capable, came quickly up to speed and was very astute. I felt in good hands at all time


I am very grateful for the respectful way I was treated, that Zindels are willing to offer legal aid services and for their wonderful expertise. I knew that they had my best interests at heart and this made a stressful time easier.


Even though I was up against some pretty formidable competition, I knew that we would do well in an understated and honest way and we did. Thank you very much Steven and the team."

"Regardless of the outcome next week you have done a really good job of being responsive to emails and questions and have taken the time to really listen to what we wanted.  You may hear it often and it may sound trite – but it actually does make a huge difference when you are sitting in the position that we are."
