What our clients say
Fantastic service, dealt with my issue very quickly and gave me an honest and realistic explanation as to what my options were to manage my expectations. Then once I'd decided what to do they acted immediately, and my matter was settled (positive outcome) and I'd received compensation within a few days. Couldn't be happier.
- Jason Riley
We had just bought our first home, everything settled without issue- however when we moved in we were faced with issues which should have been fixed prior that was not reported by the property manager we had looking after the house whilst we were renting it out prior to moving in. There was months of back and forth correspondance, thank god for Sidnee Jennings.

My recent experience in engaging Ballantyne Law Group for conveyancing for a commercial property was absolutely first class. As this was our first commercial property we found ourselves a little bewildered with setting up the various company structures and other matters relating to the property purchase. James and Sidnee were extremely responsive and considerate to all of my many questions and I felt far more at ease with the whole transaction. Thank you BLG!
Sidnee was my lawyer from the Ballantyne Law Group on the conveyancing of a new townhouse in Southport I bought. Professional, organised, and knowledgable. There were hiccups from the sellers end, Sidnee didn't miss a beat. Responses were quick and strategic. A young up and coming lawyer who is destined for much greater things than conveyancing. Highly recommended.
