    Client Testimonials

    What previous and existing clients have to share about working with the Legal House.


    After finding myself in the tragic and unfortunate circumstance of being widowed under 50 and still having two children at home, I knew I needed excellent legal assistance to update my will and secure my assets. I was fortunate that a good friend recommended Nick Harrison. Nick instantly put me at ease and explained each step to me in layman’s terms, I left Nick’s office fully informed, protected, and confident. I have since referred numerous friends and family to Nick – his service and knowledge is outstanding! He is extremely empathetic and knows how to get the job done right. I have no hesitation in recommending Nick to anyone who requires an exceptional caring professional family lawyer.



    A relationship breakdown can be messy and emotional, for me it was both. This made it very difficult for me to think clearly and make good decisions. Compound that with not understanding the minefield of family law made matters even worse. Nick helped shed light and guided me through a difficult time by explaining the law in simple terms and taking away the legal stress throughout the breakup. The greatest gift Nick provided me was peace of mind with a successful outcome. I would highly recommend Nick for any Family Law matters pre or post a relationship as his experience and knowledge is worth its weight in gold.



    I just want to again say a sincere thank you for your assistance with the Binding Financial Agreement. Your work helped me overcome a huge burden that had been plaguing me for five years. I appreciated your direct advice and your drive to navigate through to the end of an unnecessarily messy process. You were definitely the perfect lawyer for me for this purpose.



    Thanks for filling my glass 56% fuller.

    Thank you for your support and guidance. It’s been a very real experience and I could not of learned and grown in the ways that I have without you.

    I’m grateful for the edge you have given me.



    Nick is attentive, efficient and gets the job done in a professional and timely manner.

    His advice was prescient and always on the ball.

    I’d recommend him anytime to anybody.
