Lama of Hazelbrook

Without the help of Parramatta City Legal I would not have completed my Motor Accident Claim this successfully. Their continuous support and never-ending commitment was incredible. They exceeded all expectations and dealt with not only my claim which was considered complex in nature and progressed to the Supreme Court of NSW, but also dealt with my sensitive emotional state with the utmost professionalism.

In my years of dealing with all sorts of business “professionals”, Shaher Dahlan is one of the very few who stands out from the crowd and displays an enormous amount of excellent qualities especially his superb organizational skills. This allowed for a satisfying experience.

Lenda of Sydney

Parramatta City Legal handled our conveyance. They provided professional and comprehensive advice on what searches were required and what searches weren’t required which saved us hundreds of dollars. We would highly recommend Parramatta City Legal to any person looking for a lawyer who takes pride in their work and takes the time to explain all the legal jargon.

Thank you Parramatta City Legal!

Ashna of Oakhurst

Parramatta City Legal is a true professional practice. They do not ignore their clients like some firms do. Highly recommended if in need of legal assistance.

Alison of Ermington

I was thrilled with the outcome I achieved in my case through Parramatta City Legal. I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect, but I was made to feel comfortable and confident as to the progress of my claim. Mr Dahlan’s knowledge of the facts of my case and the applicable law inspired confidence in me and enabled me to get on with my life without having to be bogged down completely in the legal proceedings.

Before I saw Parramatta City Legal I had doubts about my claim and was on the verge of giving up. Mr Dahlan picked me up and gave me the strength to go on and win my case.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your firm to others.

Rodney of Greystanes

I was very pleased with the service provided at Parramatta City Legal following my motor vehicle accident. I only had to run with my case for four months before they achieved an excellent result for me by way of a settlement.

Parramatta City Legal not only met my expectations but exceeded them. I had no idea that I could achieve a great result in such a short space of time. I thought that my case would drag on for years

David of Strathfield

One thing I would like to express is my gratitude for the communication process which took place when I retained Parramatta City Legal.

Before I came to the firm, my former Solicitor was very poor when it came to returning my phone calls or emails. It made me feel very uncomfortable and inadequate about my case.

I expressed my concerns about my previous solicitor and was assured that I would be constantly informed as to the progress of my case. It was a promise that was kept. I was very happy with the firm’s commitment to that aspect of their service

Teresa of Pendle Hill

I had a claim that arose from an incident which occurred in 2006. I was offered to have some of my claim paid out by the defendant, but on the basis that I would not take any negligence action against them. This caused me some concern so I decided to see Parramatta City Legal. Within 10 minutes I realised that I had a whole host of rights and entitlements I wasn’t even aware of and that the defendant was trying to simply wipe its hands clean of me.

I proceeded with my case through Parramatta City Legal and achieved a result that was more than ten times greater than the offer that the defendant made to me early on. I am glad that I went through Parramatta City Legal because they made sure my rights were protected and explained everything to me every step of the way.

Susan of South Wentworthville

I just wanted to say thank you for all the wonderful work that you did for me. I am not sure I would have been able to go through the whole ordeal without your assistance and support.

Mr Dahlan is certainly a caring and committed person who strives to do the best for his clients.

Many thanks from me and my husband.

Ahmad of Parramatta

I was very happy with my Solicitor. He ensured that he was almost always available to take my queries throughout the entire duration of my case.

My case was quite complex with a long and protracted history. The insurance company was quite difficult about the whole thing and I thought that it would take years and years to finalise everything. With Parramatta City Legal, my matter was resolved within 2 years, which I thought was quite reasonable.

I was absolutely satisfied with the service I received through Parramatta City Legal and the financial settlement I was able to achieve. It enabled me to get on with my life and concentrate on more important things.

Andrew of Homebush Bay

The service provided by Parramatta City Legal in attempting seeking out adequate and sufficient compensation for the damages I sustained was absolutely outstanding. At no stage did I have any complaints about the conduct or progress of my claim.
I found that my matter proceeded efficiently with adequate expertise. I was never left in the dark. My barrister was particularly helpful at the hearing which really helped to calm my nerves.
It wasn’t only the professional relationship my solicitor maintained with me, but the sense of commitment and understanding towards my case that kept my spirits up during the litigation.
I really felt comfortable with Parramatta City Legal and have already referred friends and family to handle their matters because of the confidence I now have in them.
Thank you again. I wish the staff there all the best in the future.
