What people are saying about Baker Love Lawyers

Helpful, very professional and prompt

Kyua Ryan | Eatons Hotel

“We had no experience with immigration issues until recently, when we contacted Baker Love Lawyers. I found their Immigration Law team to be more than helpful, very professional and prompt in helping us achieve our goal to sponsor a visa applicant to work for our company, Eatons Hotel. Rebecca McKenzie was an absolute joy to deal with and I would recommend Baker Love Lawyers to anybody needing legal advice.”


Rock-solid legal firm

Robert Watson | Managing Well

“When preparing my first Will 33 years ago, my parents advice was to find a rock-solid legal firm for life – and in Newcastle, that meant Baker Love.

Now I look back, and I can read my own timeline of how Baker Love have supported me through the years with Wills when we were married, Contracts and conveyancing when we bought our first house, Contract for a moderate in-family loan when we built a larger house, guidance on a medical retirement, and witnessing of signatures on myriad documents. They also refreshed our Wills as our boys grew up and became independent.

Baker Love was able to assist us with our Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship papers, and documentation surrounding the establishment of a Family Trust and Small Business. And most recently, they provided guidance on issues relating to our aging parents.

Terry Morgan has provided professional and excellent service, often at very short notice. I have also been pleased with my interactions with Rebecca McKenzie and Dean Frith.”

We also utilise Baker Love Lawyers to keep us abreast of changes to the law that effect our business.

Dependable and easily contactable

Larry Bashford | SLE Industrial Supplies

“For over 30 years Baker Love Lawyers have provided legal advice to my Family and Business. This association has afforded us confidence in our Family lives (wills etc) as well as Business (advice and litigation). Baker Love are held in the highest order and I consistently refer Friends, Family and Business associates to their services, a team of specialist Lawyers covering all aspects of law.

Recently our Business engaged Baker Love in a debt recovery matter, it was a matter relative to a small amount, and as such we had little hope of recovery. However after the intervention of Baker Love on our behalf a positive resolution for our Company was achieved.

A key aspect of legal representation is having someone that is dependable and easily contactable when we need them, that is Baker Love Lawyers. All of the Lawyers that I have dealt with at Baker Love (from Industrial law to litigation and general advice) are reliable, approachable, professional and attentive. Can you afford not to have them on your team?”


Practical and effective legal advice

Jane Altschwager | Commercial Client

“We recently engaged Baker Love Lawyers to act on our behalf in respect to the negotiation and drafting of a commercial lease. The matter was handled in an efficient and commercially adept manner with a high degree of professionalism and skill.

We were able to have favourable lease terms put into place in a relatively short period of time. The lawyer made the process much easier by the practical and effective legal advice that was provided. We are very happy with the service and will continue to work with Baker Love Lawyers where the need arises.”


Stress-free settlement

Trisha Lumby | Conveyancing Client

“When I purchased my house I was very ignorant of “the process” and was most impressed by the friendly, efficient, helpful advice I was given. Nothing was ever a trouble and I was treated with utmost courtesy. Everything progressed smoothly without stress and settlement went ahead on time.”


Specialist advice

Matthew Purins | Conveyancing Client

“As a first home buyer, I was very grateful for Baker Love’s specific advice on the contract for sale. Their pre-purchase inspection of the contract prior to the auction uncovered some omissions and unfavourable clauses. I now feel more confident knowing that I don’t simply have to accept the vendor’s conditions without question.”
