Absolutely professional throughout the whole messy, complicated ordeal. Everything was fully explained and always kept up to date. Not only a lovely person but highly professional.


I was lost and didn’t know what to do next, the staff at Timpano Legal were wonderful new exactly what to do, when other lawyers I had spoken to didn’t give me any encouraging advice, they kept in touch with me and informed at all times. They Won my case and we will be forever grateful.


I had my initial meeting with Laura regarding some criminal charges and this woman really cared. I feel completely confident having her represent me.


My experience with Laura Willox has been one of, professionalism, quality and friendship. This firm will go out of their way to accommodate you the client. I highly recommend Timpano Legal.


Thank you Laura & Team. Your compassion, respect, understanding & knowledge has helped reinsure me of my rights, and ensured that I received the outcome due to myself & my children. Highly recommend!


At an extremely difficult and worrying time, Timpano stepped in and managed my case with professionalism and care. We had a very positive outcome relatively quickly, and the stress associated with the ordeal was minimised thanks to the team’s ability to navigate the legal system.


I would recommend Timpano Legal as they give you straight to the point advice and work directly with you to sort out matters. Their friendly and experienced team are great and it would be hard to go past using this firm.
