I’ve worked with Ben and the O’Hearn Lawyers team for a number of years now. They are always approachable, commercially focused and happy to think outside the square. I would recommend any business or personal client to reach out to OHL for assistance.

Recently I was in need of legal advice and a friend referred me to Maryanne McGrath. Maryanne was very helpful in my matter and took considerable time to work through all aspects of my problem. With her advice I was able to make a decision regarding my enquiry. I feel that the decision I made was an informed one and covered all of my concerns. I found Maryanne to be very professional in her approach to me and my matter. She also took the time to listen and discuss all of my concerns. Nothing was rushed and I was given time to feel comfortable with my decision. Also during the course of our meetings, several other issues arose and we were able to address those as well. Thank you Maryanne.

"I've used O'Hearn Lawyers for my business for many years now, and though our contact is infrequent, my experience has always been positive. What I appreciate most is their 'real world' advice, rather than advice that simply increases their own billable hours. They're highly experienced and excellent at what they do, but they're rational and honest also, and I always feel they have our best interests at heart."
