Recent Testimonials for Danielle Parsons (née Harnett)

“Having engaged with Slater & Gordon at the recommendation of a Director friend I have encountered exceptional thought, dedication and consistent professionalism in my case.  In lending an empathetic ear in first hearing my grievance and concerns.  Specifically when pursuing any form of legal assistance can be both confusing and a daunting experience.  The ongoing support and advice not only provided much needed reassurance, but also the confidence to navigate the policies and procedures when dealing with the nuances of employment law.  Especially dealing with a large global corporation who used their legal counsel to counter each argument and belittling my professional standing amongst my peers. Each activity, communication and document review covered all available options and practical guidance on the next steps.  After nearly 10 months, it took honest and transparent advice and timely due diligence by Danielle Parsons and her team to achieve an excellent outcome.  I have no issue recommending Danielle and I look forward to investing in future services. Specifically a more positive step, my contract review for my next job! FIVE STARS”

“I can’t thank you enough for the good job you did for me. The whole process was both scary and unpleasant for me, but it was clear that you knew exactly how to handle the situation, and gave me great guidance throughout. I appreciated that you had a clear vision on what I could hope to achieve, and you helped me get there. I also appreciated your clarity and honesty about the cost and likelihood of success of various approaches, your quick response to my questions, and the way that you made everything straight forward and simple to understand. I am convinced I could not have achieved the same result without you, so thank you again. ”
