We get the big picture, understand where you’re coming from, and aren’t afraid to think outside the box to provide a favourable outcome.

Many people are scared to take legal action and stand up for their rights because they’re intimidated by the process or confused about the law.

  • Understand their rights
  • Meet your legal obligations
  • Resolve disputes
  • Take action for injustices

I sold a small flat and needed a lawyer to act for conveyancing. Colin Adno was obvious choice as I have known him... since our school days back in SA but it was a good choice cos of his professional, friendly manner and efficiency in doing whatever it was that needed doing. I did not have to worry about a thing and between him and his secretary Niki the whole process was completed painlessly and easily. Thank you!'read more

As a first time home buyer I was lucky enough to have just the right professionals helping us out, easing the pain of... what can be quite a stressful time.Colin and the team at Batten Sacks assisted us in our conveyancing and related legal work, and could not have been more attentive, prompt and professional in the lead up to our settlement and beyond - including a ten day wait for settlement to complete due to issues on the vendor's side. In very short order a License Agreement was arranged between all parties and we were lucky enough to be able to move in before settlement finally went through.I'll definitely be recommending Colin and his team to anyone looking for conveyancing and other legal needs.read more

I have used Wayne Sacks, Batten Sacks for my estate planning, which was quite complex with trusts, companies, self... managed super funds plus a 'blended' family - and they have done a great job. In addition, for my insolvency work, I have used Trevor Rosenthal for an ATO preference recovery action which he operated on a success fee basis - and we were 100% successful! I have also used Geoff Baum for a difficult property settlement. So thanks to Wayne, Trevor and Geoff - some great results! I have found them to be approachable and willing to help solve my problem. - and in Trevor's case, there is always a good ( 😉 ) joke to tell to start the conversation!read more
