Maisie Yau – We have used Palmer’s Solicitors for over 20 years. They are efficient, effective, cost effective and very knowledgeable. Maisie Yau is absolutely excellent. She is efficient, a very good communicator, sharp witted and very knowledgeable.

Carey Jacobs/Maisie Yau – As a company we have dealt with Palmers Solicitors for many years since we moved our companies head office into the area in many aspects of our business. Over the past year we have had reason to undertake several branch moves, which has given us the opportunity to appoint Palmers solicitors to work on behalf of us on several land leases. We have always found them thorough and willing to go the extra mile to attain a very balanced deal for us. I would recommend Palmers to any company or private individual that are looking for a very professional and helpful company of solicitors.
