The Committee have asked me to express their thanks for the work that you carried out for us in the purchase of the land.  It truly is appreciated.

Yours faithfully, Robyn Nahr, Secretary, SPCA Buller.

Margot was excellent  in helping me through a really difficult time for me and my daughter. She was always upbeat and I was impressed with the quality of advice and legal service she gave me in my parenting dispute. Margot walked me through the process and made it easier.  Words can’t describe how awesome she has been!


Thank you for your exemplary assistance in this matter and earlier with our Mother’s estate.

Kind Regards, W.

What this testimonial means for me to the team at Stevens Orchard Lawyers.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Margot Harkness.  Through my induction I found her to be a natural leader with the intelligence and energy to get the job done. Margot laid a very strong foundation for moving forward with my property relationship matter and things started moving forward.

From there I was introduced to Amanda Munting-Kilworth and she took over as my lawyer with her cheerful and friendly approach towards organising me to gather as much evidence and witness affidavits to further strengthen my case for our big day at court.

Much to my surprise I hit a flat spot where I felt a lot of my energy being sucked up through all the activity going on in the background doing courses appeasing the ex instead of staying focused on the big job at hand.

I was given a life line through “Stevens Orchard” meeting with Stacey Daily with her calming approach and confidence. She had me believing there’s going to be a bright light at the end of all this and with her determination and Amanda’s organising they made an exceptional team together.

Finally justice took its course we had two big days in court and won hands down thanks to the great team at Stevens Orchard

We have had a working relationship with Stevens Orchard Lawyers over the last 18 months. During this time they have dealt with a number of matters for us and completed these to a very high standard.

Amanda Munting-Kilworth and the team at Stevens Orchard Lawyers are highly organised and reliable. They are always very accessible and have extensive professional knowledge, which has assisted us in many areas.

The fact that they take pride in their work is reflected in the way they handle our requests and meet deadlines in a timely manner.

We look forward to our continued relationship with Stevens Orchard Lawyers

Friday just got better!

The lovely Stevens Orchard Team of Ladies are indeed a “highly qualified, feisty team of lawyers with heart, integrity and great heads for business”. It is with some sadness, that we are leaving Westport after 10 years in residence, during which Louise and Jane have assisted us with buying three sections, selling 3 homes, setting up one Family Trust, and advising on employment law. Tamara and Charmaine have been at the end of a phone or email providing “rock solid support” to both us, as clients, and Jane and Louise. Whenever a signature is required, these ladies will ensure all “I’s are dotted and t’s crossed”. Both the Nelson and Westport offices work seamlessly together as a well-oiled machine to deliver a timely, affordable and stress-free outcome for their clients. Jane will make sure you know the finer details of any property purchases you make, while Louise will ensure that the exact amount of rates are paid on selling,  keep tabs on the other party, and that costs are as quoted. Tech savvy “Girl Friday” Kylie will unobtrusively connect Westport clients with the Nelson Team via SKYPE when required. Even though we have moved out of the district, we will continue to work with the lovely Team at Stevens Orchard as we have a well-established rapport, and everyone is only an email, phone call or Skype session away.

 Many thanks for looking after all of our legal needs these last 10 years, we look forward to continuing to work with you all over the next decade

I am writing to say what a great firm Stevens Orchard Lawyers is.

I have had the sad duty to be the executor for 3 close family members over the last 3 years.

None of these wills were easy to navigate and settle. Fractious family members made it tough going.

The lawyers I dealt with over all of these and the Legal executives were patient, thorough, kind and considerate. Their knowledge and advice was extremely helpful when the going got tough.

They walked me through 2 property settlements, paid bills, negotiated with companies over insurances, rates, power accounts, investments and two complaints over workmanship on house repairs. No question was too difficult and all responses were prompt and easy to understand.

I don’t want to ever have to pick up the role of executor ever again, however if that does happen then I would have no hesitation in engaging this Legal firm again, or recommending them to others. I can’t thank them enough for their services –

They are outstanding!
