“We are extremely pleased that Lisa Riley was recommended to us.  Lisa was very upfront with us as regards possible outcomes, kept us informed along the way, and successfully achieved the best possible outcome.  She was dogged in her pursuit of justice and we found her to be honest, helpful, caring, diligent, and very professional in all our dealings with her.

We would strongly recommend her (and her support team at HHG) to anyone needing to engage a top-quality criminal lawyer.”


Lisa Riley, I would like to thank you for all your help and support through this difficult and disappointing period in my life.

Your professionalism and supportive nature have been a welcome change and Alison and I are very appreciative of this, HHG is very lucky to have someone of your expertise and dedication working for them and we both can’t speak highly enough of you, I will be forever grateful to you and your company for all your help and kindness, I would highly recommend you and HHG to everyone who needs competent and professional legal representation.

Once again thank you so much.


Dear Lisa,

Just a small note of gratitude for the phone call you gave me last Tuesday (11 July), in response to my legal query. I really appreciated the kindness you showed in reassuring me of my rights in our phone call, amongst other priorities. I am very appreciative of your time.


Thanks so much, Lisa. Very happy! Your team is very professional.


We have been working with Kim and HHG Legal, Bunbury on several matters. Kim is professional, approachable and knowledgeable; prompt to respond to a query with detailed information that is not only relevant to the matter in question, but also reassuring which instils confidence for us to continue working with Kim and HHG Legal, Bunbury.


The process of working through the settlement of our father’s estate presented us with a potentially challenging and complex undertaking. We would like to thank Simon, Alyce, and the team at HHG for taking on this work in such a thorough, thoughtful, and professional manner. Our family is very grateful for the help and advice that they have provided, and we highly recommend their services to anyone who needs the professional support that HHG provides.
