MICHAEL ZANDE WAS THE LAST LAWYER I SPOKE TO BUT NOW WISH HE HAD OF BEEN THE FIRST.
Michael Zande has worked with me on a family law matter and I cannot being to express my gratitude and for his pragmatic no nonsense approach to handing a tricky family law matter.
I had been working with another lawyer who was costing me a small fortune in fees and I was getting nowhere fast. Upon making the decision to change lawyers I just didn’t switch and end up in another hole. So, I interviewed 6 lawyers locally and interstate. Michael, was the last lawyer I spoke to but wish he was the first one I spoke to. He could of saves me $$$$$, time and emotion heartache.
What did Michael do that was different?
• He was prepared for my consult meeting – I had sent him my summary, files and all information to date. Prior to my meeting he had worked the number (anyone heading towards a financial settlement will need this).
• There was a clear explanation based on the law and various cases that have been held nationally and internationally. This helped me understand and make peace with my decisions in regards to parenting and financial agreements.
• THERE IS A PLAN – TO MOVE YOUR MATTER FORWARD AND NOT LET IT LINGER
• Michael, challenges you to think beyond your immediate situation and look forwards your future.
• Litigation and correspondence is simple, easy to understand with the emotion removed.
• Michael, has the emotional intelligence to separate fact from emotion and focus on the of the law. But he knows when to stop address the emotion.
• Michael is highly proactive and works to keep momentum
• Finally, the team at ZANDE Law are very generous with their time
Since working with Michael and the team at ZANDE I have been referring friends and family and they are all very happy with the results they have achieved.
For the last 3-4 years your team at Zande Law have helped enormously. Words cannot express how grateful we are for the help and guidance we have received from pretty much everyone in your firm, your team have helped us immensely and the sale of the house last week was just the icing on the cake.
You should be extremely proud of the team you have there at Zande and we highly recommend your firm and services to anyone.

After splitting with my ex-wife, she took my son and cut of all time for me to spend with him. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through and I had no idea what my rights were as a father. My ex was unwilling to negotiate and the concept of going to Court seemed overwhelming.
I engaged Zande Law and they immediately got to work to bring my son home. They stood side by side with me and handled all of the stress of preparing the Court documents and going up against the barrister that my ex had hired. My son now spends half of the time with me and we couldn’t be happier.
I can’t thank the team at Zande Law enough for fighting tooth-and-nail for me and for giving my son the best future possible.

I engaged Michael Zande at Zande Law to help me with a child support problem. From beginning to end, I found Michael and all of the team at Zande Law to be first class. At the first interview, Michael was able to identify a solution to my problem, which was very reassuring because the Lawyer I had engaged before Michael couldn’t. Michael then followed through on everything that was promised and went out of his way and above and beyond on many occasions to make sure that I was properly looked after. Despite having to overcome some additional challenges thrown up in my case, Michael was able to steer the job home and get the result that I needed. Overall, very happy with the service and would not hesitate to recommend Zande Law to anyone else considering engaging their services.

I came to see Zande Law for some advice on issues we were having with the Body Corporate in our residential complex. Michael was really helpful with clearing up a lot of the points of confusion and conflict. He took the time to refer to the various sections of the Act & Regulations that were applicable to our issues.
He was able to put our mind to rest that there were some things that we couldn’t do anything about but has helped us focus on the things we can do and how we can create an action plan to that end. He also provided an example and other owners were suitably impressed with this as it showed how the processes work under the Act.
I would not hesitate to recommend Zande Law for legal advice on Body Corporate issues, they are very dedicated to trying to help.

I recently had Zande Law handle my property settlement following a divorce from my ex-wife and have no hesitation recommending them to all of my family and friends.
What has been a testing time for me has been made a lot easier with them supporting me and I can honestly say that they had my best interests at heart throughout the ordeal.
I was initially referred to Zande Law from a friend who Zande’s have looked after during his divorce. He said that they really knew their stuff but also that they were very efficient and extremely caring in the way that they went about doing the work. My case involved sizable battles between myself and my ex over arrangements for our children and the division of our property and on both fronts, I must say Zandes were incredibly tenacious in how they dealt with issues yet at the same time always ready to measure up with me the cost of the fight -v- any benefit that might come from it.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Zande Law to any persons in need of family law advice.

Although I had been a family counsellor for 30 years, nothing prepared me for the crisis in my own marriage after 48.5 years. It was with nervousness that I booked an appointment with Zande Law.
From my first contact with reception to the finalising of my binding financial agreement, new will, new enduring power of attorney, advanced health directive, and conveyancing for sale of house, lawyer Michael Zande, paralegals Rebecca, Robyn and Helen all treated me with caring courtesy.
Of especial note was the expert knowledge of family law and these other areas that this professional team brought to my many issues. Remember that you get what you pay for.
I recommend with enthusiasm Zande Law, North Lakes.
– Mr SG.
I wanted to thank you, and Rebecca, in particular for you patience and professionalism in dealing with the administration of the Estate. But that said, all your staff have been a pleasure to work with. Your flexibility in taking on additional matters, and your competence and the clarity of your advice in dealing with the issues arising in the execution of the Estate, was a great help and made a difficult time and process considerably less stressful for me. Thank you very much.

We have used Zande Law now for a number of purchases and sales of properties. We have been very impressed with the Conveyancers’ capacity to keep everything running efficiently and smoothly. Their response times were great and they were always across the things that needed to be done in plenty of time for them to be done without the need for panic. We also however would like to highly commend Zande Law for the way they have looked after us when things went wrong. In a purchase contract, we found it necessary to terminate and were at risk of losing our full deposit of $30,000.00. We were ready to give up however, the staff at Zande Law asked us for permission to get in and fight for us to see if they could get some of our money back. We agreed and the result was that all but $4,000.00 was recovered. Money is hard to come by and it is good to know that your Conveyancing Lawyer will fight for you to protect your money when the need arises.

I used Zande Law in my recent Family Law case to assist me with negotiations and resolution of issues concerning both division of property and care arrangements for my children following the breakdown of my marriage. Having used Lawyers before in both commercial and personal matters, I thought I knew what to expect from Zande Law’s representation. The firm however exceeded my expectations in every conceivable way. Zande’s were exceptionally quick on their response time, inventive and intelligent in resolving the issues that myself and my wife had, but most of all, were consistently able to put my mind at ease by keeping me informed about the process, the achievable outcomes and the price tag to get there. Best of all however, was Michael Zande’s ability to explain things to me in a way that was easy for a person without legal training to understand and in my view that is the true mark of high expertise. Everybody that I have dealt with in the firm exhibited a culture of empathy and care towards me and a very high dedication to doing high quality work. I could thoroughly recommend Zande Law to anyone who has any needs in the Family Law department.

I would like to commend and thank Michael Zande and all of the staff at Zande Law for their terrific help in resolving my property division and divorce issues following the breakdown of my marriage.
At all times Michael kept me really well informed on the process and all of my options, he was aggressive when he needed to be and diplomatic when required.
My wife was after a very large property settlement from me but thanks to Michael’s energy, enthusiasm and skill, she ended up with something very much smaller and most importantly what I would consider to be fair.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael Zande and all of the staff at Zande Law to assist any clients in family law matters.
— Bob F.
I recently used Zande Law as my solicitors to do the Conveyancing work on the sale of my house.
Throughout the whole process I found Pat Walker and all of the team at Zande Law to be very professional and efficient. They kept me informed at all of the critical stages.
When we encountered problems with the sale they really went “above and beyond” to find the solutions event though they never caused the problems in the first place.
I will definitely be using Zande Law again for my next conveyance and have no hesitation in recommending their services to my friends and family.
— Mrs. Nell
We recently had the need to use a Lawyer to review and consider updating our Wills. We chose Zande Law after reading some of their articles which they publish regularly in the North Lakes Messenger. Michael and his team were terrific. They were very thorough in going over our current situation and making sure that the Will and Enduring Power of Attorney documents that were necessary would be a good fit for our situation. The documents were all prepared very quickly and everything was made to run very smoothly. I would have no hesitation recommending Zande Law to anyone who would be considering updating their Will and Enduring Power of Attorney.

I used Zande Law as my Solicitors to do the conveyancing work on the purchase of my investment property at the Gap.
From start to finish, Helen and all of the staff were excellent. They kept it simple, were responsive and very efficient. We didn’t have to do anything, which was great.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Zande Law for conveyancing services.
— M Brockwell
Thank you so much Helen, can I say it was a wonderful experience!! You have made this transaction settle so smoothly. I was worried that the vendor is a bit tough and may create issues. However, you followed up on pending issues and made sure all the itmes are addressed, if not you appropriately informed.
Can’t expect more!!! Once again thanks from all of us.
— Sanjay K.
Thank you to Michael and the staff at Zande Law for putting on such an excellent presentation for our residents. We had 130 people attend the seminar and I have already heard positive feedback from over 100 of them, many asking for the Advanced Health Directive form to discuss further their Doctor. Most of the feedback included how informative the presentation was and how easy it was to follow Michael’s notes and visual power points. I personally was very impressed with Michael’s discussion and delivery of a difficult topic and how easy it was to listen to his explanations. Everyone left the presentation much more informed and enlightened. We look forward to having Michael and his team present to us again in the near future.
— Linda Waldock (Registered Nurse & Seminar Co-Ordinator North Lakes Retirement Resort)
A big thank you to Michael and all the staff at Zande Law for their tremendous assistance in helping resolve my issues on the breakdown of my de facto marital relationship.
Michael’s professionalism in explaining all of the applicable components of the law and his intuition in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of my case and how best to work with them was incredibly impressive.
His ability to read the opposition and guide me through decisions at times where I found myself overwhelmed and unable to decide which way to go was an enormous sense of relief.
When I found myself wavering, Michael stayed strong.
— Pamela K
He [Michael] has truly helped us through a very stressful time and his reassurance and efforts to fast-track this letter is very appreciated. We can only begin to understand how busy he and the whole team at Zande Law are, and we cannot thank you all enough. What may come from this we are not sure, but tonight we will be able to get some sleep knowing that we are in a much better situation compared to 24hrs ago! You are all wonderful
— Mr and Mrs H

— Greg M
I would like to thank you Michael and the rest of the team at Zande Law for looking after me in my Family court case over the last few years. I appreciate that you have a business to run and that you have many other clients who need to be looked after, but to me, it always felt like the level of care and attention you gave to my case always made me feel like I was your only client.
I am greatful for the skill and professionalism you have show in my matter and would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone else who ever had any need of family law representation.
Thank you again.
