I engaged the services of Mr. John Velos and his firm Velos & Velos Lawyers to negotiate a settlement dispute between myself and the Department of Human Services – Centrelink Office.  The situation was very stressful and demanding.

Mr John Velos and staff were very understanding and compassionate of my situation and acted in a very professional, efficient and timely manner.  Mr John Velos was able to negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement with regular monthly payments and thus avoided being declared bankrupt.

I do not hesitate in recommending Mr John Velos and his dedicated staff to anyone who needs assistance in dealing with the ATO, Centrelink or any other Department of Human Services and relevant authorities.  I am positive that all clients will be provided with respect, compassion, professionalism, sound and practical legal advice.

I wish to take the opportunity to thank Mr John Velos and staff for their utmost professionalism, timely legal advice and support during this most difficult and stressful time and wish them every success and continued growth from strength to strength to provide excellent services to all clients and the community.
