Laura Symons

Lawbite Customer Comments

Laura was very helpful. Admittedly it wasn't the news I wanted to hear, but without this advice I could of been looking at a legal issue later on in the term of my business. Very polite, courteous and friendly. Dean Baldwin

Laura was so friendly and helpful, so stoked to have found Lawbite. So affordable for little people like me!! Thank you! Emma Grossmann

An excellent service all round and a pleasure to see a company focussed on supporting small or start-up businesses whose budgets and requirements are nowhere near the same as the big corporates. Thank you. Catherine Hill

Quick to send the document corrected and to reply to any queries I had. Very helpful and professional, thank you Brianna Broadbridge

Provided some very useful advice which I will most certainly bear in mind as I progress through negotiations with my business contacts in Mexico. Brian Foster
