My dealings at JP Legal have always been first class. The service, personnel and smooth process has always made it a no brainer when picking a law firm for all my legal matters. MD John Pastro should be commended for the professionalism and expertise he has developed in his practice.


Vanessa at JP Legal was excellent. My partner and I had recently sold two properties and purchased one and Vanessa kept us informed through out the process and was nothing but professional and flawless in all our dealings. I would have no hesitation in recommending her and the company at JP Legal.


Thank you for your fantastic service over my past 3 conveyancing transactions. Not only are you terrific at what you do but you have helped to make the process straightforward and hassle free. I would highly recommend you and the company.


Nick and the team at JP have taken care of all my families legal needs for some time now. From conveyancing, wills, contract reviews and everyday family law needs. Furthermore as a Financial Planner I recommend all my clients go and see the team for estate planning requirements or any other legal matters.
