What my client says about me

Tracey and her team consistently gave superb guidance, advice and support through the employment law matter we collectively resolved.  It was a particularly stressful experience, however, Tracey's warm manner, her pragmatic approach and underpinning expertise gave me the confidence to work together with Slater Heelis to resolve matters, reaching a good outcome.
