Some of my clients have said some nice things about me, and I would like to share some of them with you:
Ms W, Child and Educational Psychologist
I have used Darren Hunter as a lawyer since about 2010. As a Child and Educational Psychologist, I referred clients to him for custody matters, and parental dispute and resolution issues. All the clients I referred to him reported that he created rapport easily, was timeous, gave proficient and accurate information, was able to explain the legal system and processes in terms that they could understand, felt truly represented by him and was affordable. On a more personal front, I have always been able to rely on Darren. More recently [he has] been a wonderful support through my separation and divorce. He was able to understand my situation intuitively, lend emotional support appropriately, whilst still being able to advise on financial matters, and more importantly child custody issues, with candour and genuine concern. He has always “gone the extra mile” and made himself available at short notice, responded to desperate phone calls and emails (on my part) promptly, even when he has had hectic days in court; and always delivered his services in a friendly, humorous and approachable manner. He is someone that I have recommended in the past and will continue to recommend
Mr B, retired Detective Inspector, Police
I wish to express my appreciation and deep gratitude for your professional conduct and wise counsel during the prolonged family law dispute (property settlement) in which you were engaged as my legal representative.
I was impressed with the level of service and commitment provided to me over an extended period. The outcome was beyond my expectation given.
Your clarity of advice was appreciated and it was my experience that any recommendation made to me was based on your clinical forensic approach to the issues supported to the full extent by the relevant law and authorities. Your explanation of the relevant ”statute – case law” and its significance cannot be underestimated. Your timely advice enabled me to make strategic decisions at critical times, which, in my opinion has led to the satisfactory outcome.
I was further impressed with your efforts in trying to resolve the family law dispute in a timely cost effective manner by negotiation. Your approach whilst always acting in my interest was courteous, professional and fair to all other parties. In my view it was always relevant to the issues at hand. At no time were you unnecessarily belligerent or inflammatory but when required took a firm consistent approach.
Despite your best efforts the matter progressed to trial and it was here that your experience and broad knowledge of the law and its processes came to the fore. That the outcome exceeded my expectation is testament to your abilities.
I would commend Mr. Darren Hunter to any person who wishes to engage a professional, competent, knowledgeable legal practitioner who acts in his client’s interest at all times.
I found Mr. Hunter’s standard of work and breadth of advice to be exemplary. He is a practiced competent negotiator and his advocacy in court on my behalf led to successful outcomes.
Mr. Hunter’s correspondence, court brief preparation and preparation of court documents is of the highest standard.
I found Mr. Hunter to be responsive to time demands and he returns telephone calls and responds to correspondence and/or emails in a timely manner.
Mr F. MBA
Darren demonstrated an incredibly high standard of work and always provided balanced advice that is absolutely necessary in order to make the best possible decision.
Be aware of other operators who simply tell you what you want to hear because when it comes time for court, I found that Darren’s advice accords closely with that of the Judge or Magistrate and this is due to the fact that Darren is able to remain “objective”. He also is sharp, strategic and performs well on his feet in court, in addition to being extremely well prepared for the day.
I have come to trust in Darren’s advice as he is clearly an honest operator that places his client’s interests ahead of his own. He is never aloof or unresponsive but rather on the ball and available when you need him. Therefore, I would highly recommend Darren as your legal representative.
