We were impressed by the professionalism demonstrated by Mr Seeley and by his presence at the hearing. We felt we had achieved as good a judgment as was possible in the circumstances and that Mr Seeley had obtained a very satisfactory result for us.
Licensing Law Client
Ian was super, super helpful, concise and knowledgeable. Although he didn’t give us the outcome we hoped for, he did help us out and we are thankful for the contact.
Ian provided us with clear and timely advice and put our whole family at ease. His advice was accurate and simply explained and ultimately the outcome achieved was as good as it was possible to obtain.
