Re:  Testimonial on Civil Matter.

I have been living on the ground floor, in a block of units, for 1 year now. On several occasions, the neighbours from upstairs discarded a barrage of contaminated water and debris over the common area veranda walkway, landing into my front courtyard and causing damage, as well as in my accompanying neighbours’ front courtyards too.

I contacted the owner’s corporation director, and she treated it as if it was insignificant, she just gave me excuses. This distressed me.

I called the police, but they said it was a civil matter requiring going through VCAT and they were unable to help me.

I also called a local lawyer’s firm, but they did not offer me any assistance.

No one was helping me. Very distressed by now, I decided to contact Velos and Velos Lawyers.

John Velos of Velos and Velos Lawyers supported me straight away. John listened to me and was very compassionate to my situation. He patiently watched my video evidence and agreed it was inappropriate behaviour from the neighbours and agreed that the director did not take my complaint seriously enough.

John immediately sent correspondence to the director of the owner’s corporation and to the neighbours involved, on my behalf.

Through the help of John’s correspondence, the owner’s corporation started to take my complaint seriously. With the guidance and support of John I submitted a formal complaint form to the owner’s corporation and sent photo evidence.

John liaised with the owner’s corporation, on my behalf, because I found the director too difficult to deal with. As a result, the owners corporation held a grievance meeting straight away, with the committee members. The matter was promptly resolved, with the owner’s corporation sending correspondence to all lot owners stating that this behaviour was totally unacceptable and in breach of the owner’s corporation rules.

John advised me and guided me throughout this very distressing time. He was always there for me, every time I contacted him, he was very prompt, accommodating, and professional. I am very pleased with John and all staff members at Velos and Velos Lawyers.

I highly recommend John Velos of Velos and Velos Lawyers for anyone wishing to take on civil matters like this one. John also offered me assistance if I have any more problems with the director of the owner’s corporation or neighbours in the future.

Kind Regards

Civil Matter

My name is Emily K. and I have worked as a journalist at SBS and the Greek radio station 3xy Radio Hellas in Melbourne for many years until recently.

I have also worked in the legal and medical sector for over 35 years, as a NAATI Level 3 Interpreter and I have seen many cases and scenarios with people

involved in litigation, which has been a difficult journey to them, with sentiments of stress, agony and many a times with great sadness.

I have witnessed situations of how the lay person is struggling to find their justice and closure in incomprehensible processes within the legal world.

Evolving within these medico- legal and media circles, I have witnessed and have come across people who had expressed their appreciation and gratitude for

litigation handled by Law firms which have stood out for all the right reasons.

I chose one which was continuously respected and praised by so many: VELOS & VELOS LAWYERS has been around, for over 40 years, delivering affordable legal

representation in many legal areas to their valued clients and community.

I, personally, would like to express my appreciation and gratitude to Mr. John Velos Master of Laws, who has recently provided me with excellent legal pro bono

advice in a situation where I needed to sought some valuable advice on how to proceed in a very complicated family case.

As I had heard from many people who had previously used the services of Mr. John Velos, I also experienced his expertise, integrity, excellence and kindness

whilst listening and understanding the complexity of my circumstances. He was intuitive, reading between the lines, and enlightening with an  amazing analysis of

my case.

He never looked at the time but only focused on how to give me the answers, so as to be fulfilled at the end of the session and to be clear, in what path I should

chose for my own benefit.

I highly recommend his firm Velos & Velos Lawyers for he is the person who has this light filled with professionalism and kindness combined so as to advise and

assist his clients to pursue the best path for their concerns when choosing to be legally represented and advised.

May I stress with great confidence that when one feels the need to get legal advice, one should consider to meet with Mr. John Velos who is always giving his time

and professional expertise generously.

Kind Regards

General Legal Advice

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.

Deceased Estate

My husband and I are most grateful for the services that Mr John Velos and his team at Velos and Velos Lawyers have provided for us.

Velos and Velos Lawyers have many years of experience in the legal field and that was apparent from the moment we approached Mr Velos in particular.

Mr Velos was highly capable of handling our sensitive matters with respect and integrity. Mr Velos provided us with sound legal advice for various matters that we required.

Matters including Wills, Power of Attorney and Criminal Investigations.

Will, Power of Attorney and Criminal Matters

We would like to a say a big thank you to Mr. John Velos for helping us with the most complicated case of ours. Our issue of removal of caveats from our property was lingering since ages ,we went to so many lawyers across Melbourne regarding our issue but they were not able to resolve it .

We came to know of Velos & Velos through google and had a meeting with Mr .John Velos regarding our issue. I found Mr. John very knowledgeable and professional with his services. He explained every step in detail and always assured us they are in safe hand.

Our matter was handled with at most attention by Mr. John Velos and his team ,it was solved in a timely manner without any delays.

I will always recommend Mr. John Velos to any of my friends & family if they need his service in future.

Property Law

We sought legal advice of John Velos of Velos and Velos Lawyers to assist with Body Corporate and/or Home & Contents Insurance issue we have been dealing with for over a year.

Once again, the legal advice provided by John Velos proved effective and achieved the desired result.

Thank you John Velos and staff for your guidance, advice and support which led us to an amicable and effective resolution.

We have no doubt in recommending Mr John Velos and Velos and Velos Lawyers to anyone seeking legal advice and guidance.

Body Corporate/OC

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.

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

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.
