Just a short note to thank you so much for my WorkCover matter. I can't thank you enough. I have used Whitelaw McDonald for my separation from the NSW Police, marriage, purchase of the house and this.
I have been meaning to write to you for sometime in relation to your handling of my separation from the New South Wales Police Force. I cannot thank you enough for the way in which you handled my case and the outcome that you secured for myself and my family.
I think you are in a unique position to understand the process not just from a professional stand point, but by your background with the Police Force. To my mind, this helps enormously as we have both walked similar paths in the same shoes.
I wish you all the best in your professional and personal future and I will not forget the help you gave me during the last two and half years.
John McDonald from Whitelaw McDonald Solicitors & Attorneys have just represented me in a work-related compensation claim. I can honestly say I would fully recommend John and his team to anyone looking for legal help. All through the process I felt John and his team really cared about my claim and myself. I was kept very well informed in every aspect of the process. John was very easy to talk to and always contactable whenever I had a question or query. He guided me through every step of the procedure with the utmost care and professionalism. Nothing was ever a problem for him to help me with. John made all of the necessary medical appointments for me and kept me well informed of all results in a very prompt manner. I was extremely happy with the end result and would once again like to thank John for all of his advice, help and professionalism throughout my claim.
