Here's some of the feedback our clients have given us recently!
I just wanted to express my sincere thanks and gratitude for Andie Donnelly’s professionalism and support in undertaking the conveyancing of [our house], and also to Hayman Lawyers for their services in acting for both my parents and for me in the sale and purchase.
Roger Hayman’s observations with respect to the sale of the property occurring within 2 years of the date they purchased it (the bright-line period) led me to investigating further and realising that a combination of fairly obscure provisions in the Income Tax Act 2007 around trading stock could lead to them having a tax liability, irrespective of the fact that it was being sold for below the purchase price. This would have been unacceptable so sincere thanks for that advice.
Hayman Lawyers made it easy though to change the agreement to delay the sale until after the two year period was over. Andie was extremely efficient and professional in both un-winding the kiwisaver contribution and homestart grant for the false-start, and in sorting the new sale and purchase. As a solicitor myself I can appreciate the effort and professionalism that went into making the purchase as straight-forward as possible and her instructions and advice to me was extremely clear. I’ll be sure to recommend the services of Hayman Lawyers to anyone asking for conveyancing services.
"Separating is one of the hardest things I have gone through in my life however the entire process was made much more bearable by the expertise and support from Wendy. Wendy is extremely efficient and knowledgeable. I felt my interests, and that of my children were being protected through out the separation process. That peace of mind was exactly what I needed. I highly recommend Wendy to anyone searching for a genuine, efficient and hard-working lawyer." (February 2018)
"Wendy helped us out with a tricky unit title and section merger. We had previously attempted this through another lawyer to no avail, but Wendy came up with a very clever solution saving us both time and money. Thanks again!”

Kia ora Wendy. Thanks for making what was pretty much a terrible time and process for me as stress-free as you could. Really appreciated the professionalism and great communication.
(Email after the sale of a business):
Thank you very much for guiding us through the process. I had no idea of some of the complexities and considerations involved. We are especially grateful to you for executing your responsibilities as a trustee so professionally and for protecting the interests of [family member] and considering so thoroughly her welfare. There was a lot for us to get our head around and a lot of thinking needed to find an ownership and cash flow arrangement that would be beneficial to all parties. Thank you for putting in late hours to ensure we were able to complete the purchase by the agreed date.
(Letter after Tribunal proceedings):
I am relieved that this matter has now been concluded satisfactorily and would like to thank you for the excellent work you did on our behalf.
"I would just like to thank you on behalf of my family for all the work you have put in on our behalf. What a long, slow process it has been. I have been looking back over the emails and realised again how much work was involved. It is a great relief to have it all finally completed.
I really appreciate your perseverance with the trustee, your patience with the family when things seemed to stop moving and your timely advice at all times. I am very thankful for all that and that we can now put it behind us and move on."

" When my mother passed away I needed to contact Hayman Lawyers to sort out her Estate and other related issues. From the first phone call I made to the last one, I felt very comfortable with whole process. It was obviously an emotional time and at all times I was treated with respect and compassion and in a most professional manner. Most of my contact was with Wendy Lindsay and she was so caring and understanding at all times. It certainly helped with the grieving process".
