I sought John Velos’ firm’s services to assist with a sensitive and personal interstate Deceased Estate matter that had been on my agenda for some three years prior without a workable solution and had my local solicitor stalled for over a year.

One walks out of a conference with John Velos with renewed confidence. Once the guidance of Velos was followed and acted on, in a matter of weeks the conflict was settled exactly as we had hoped. Their responses were extremely prompt, directions to the solicitor were clear, firm and yet fully supportive of me as his client, closing a painful experience agreeably with ease.

I have no hesitation in recommending this firm be considered for engagement in a wide variety of legal issues.

We engaged Mr John Velos and his team with an issue where my wife, Wendy Lam and I were wronged by our wedding reception. John and his legal team were genuinely sympathetic about our situation and fought for us with real compassion. (more…)

I experienced John’s exceptional academic and personal skills. His professionalism is admirable and most importantly, John is a Lawyer that you can call and expect to speak to or receive a call back on the same day.

John’s in-depth knowledge and experience within Bankruptcy matters increased the overall outcome of my settlement between the Trustee and myself.

John is an excellent negotiator. He dealt with a Trustee where the matter was previously very badly damaged; I thought all hope was gone. My husband was declared bankrupt in 2014. It was the messiest of all bankruptcies – the business was a partnership and the other Director’s wife was the Administration Manager/Bookkeeper and so on. I knew nothing. (more…)

I write to you today in appreciation of the service you provided to me in relation to my former Bankrupt Estate.

Unfortunately, the bankruptcy case was mishandled by the appointed Trustees. Years after being discharged, I was contacted again by the appointed Trustees requesting that I still required to repay a substitutional amount of money even though, as far as I was concerned, the case had been finalised.

I really had no idea about my legal responsibilities or more importantly, the fact that the matter could be negotiated with the former trustees.

With the one consultation with yourself, I was provided with the information I required to proceed in dealing with the former Trustees. In fact, I followed your exact recommendations in my negotiations and was able to settle on an amount equal to one third the sum of what was originally being demanded.

Had I not sought your legal expertise and most importantly, your experience in these matters, the outcome would have been far less favourable.

Thank you with much appreciation.

Kind regards,

Gerald N.

Working with John Velos and his team has meant that much of this stress has been lessened and that whilst my files have been in his capable hands, I have been able to spend more of my focus on my children (who require much supervision and care) and my health which is of great concern.
Mr John Velos has been nothing but compassionate and professional throughout the process. His team have made communications easier in circumstances where I have not understood the requests of me and I have been able to work with John and his team to take the matter to court in a timely fashion.

Help to negotiate my settlement, my divorce and my bankruptcyMagic B

I engaged the services of Mr John Velos under extremely difficult circumstances. My husband passed away and shortly after I was admitted to Alfred Hospital with pneumonia. I was very ill, frightened and anxious due to the passing of my husband. The sorrow and grief that I was going through urged me to prepare a Will as I had no idea of what tomorrow would bring. Mr John Velos and his staff understood my situation and acted in an efficient, timely and compassionate manner. Pursuant to my instructions over a telephone conference, Mr Velos urgently prepared a new Will and organized for a Lawyer to attend the Hospital with one of the secretaries, where the Will was executed and witnessed according to law.

I engaged Mr Velos’ services as soon as a newly engaged customer began to default on their arrangements in relation to receivables. Even though we delivered projects that were up to code, and in line with Australian standards there was a long and unpleasant back and forth. Mr Velos and his team understood the situation and were able to advise me on several avenues to protect us against any claims and pursue the matter at hand. Whilst this was a difficult time for us, Mr Velos’ team were able to support us and give us direction as we were unaware of our position during the most distressing of times.
