“I brought my property through these lawyers and dealt with Rose years ago, she was great. Now I’m back doing a property resumption thanks to Logan Council and dealing with Sylvia. She goes above and beyond, is easy to talk to and explains all the lawyer lingo. She knows all the rules and regulations and makes sure clients understand what they’re signing and are getting a fair deal. Thanks so much Sylvia, I really appreciate it. GA”
