  • Tony McQuillan

    Platnium Body Corporate Administration

    "Success Law will live up to its name because of its Principal lawyer Ros Janes. Ros has acted for me personally, for my companies and for numerous bodies corporate which I have managed since 2002, and many of those who had engaged Ros previously insisted that she is “their lawyer”. Her published work following the 1997 body corporate legislation has long been the reference of choice because of its clarity and ease of use, as well as its coverage of the issues. Ros demonstrates her absolute integrity in all instructions given to her, and all files are handled with great efficiency, which is why so many of my Schemes want to continue to engage her. Now that Success Law is available, its phone numbers and email addresses will be regularly used by Platinum Body Corporate Administration, and will be amongst the handful of specialist body corporate lawyers whom we are prepared to recommend to our clients, thus putting our reputation on the line. Anyone considering using Success Law is welcome to contact us for a personal reference to Success Law."

    Ace Body Corporate Management

    "Success Law have handled a number of recoveries for our office and we would once again like to thank Liat Walker and her team at Success Law for another successful recovery. The understanding of the complexities of this particular recovery which involved a Mortgagee in Possession is appreciated. Debt recovery is never easy, but Success Law certainly make this task a little less stressful for Bodies Corporate because of their integral understanding of Body Corporate Law."
  • Megan Grainger

    The Community Managers

    "I am currently using Success Law’s services to recover unpaid Body Corporate levies for one of my Bodies Corporate that is experiencing a very high level of outstanding levies. The services provided by Success Law are outstanding. They are very informed in relation to recovery of levies pursuant to the Body Corporate legislation. I would recommend their services to any Body Corporate."
  • Jennifer Urban

    Whittles Body Corporate Management Services

    "I would firstly like to say, Thank you. Thank you Success Law for your efficient, professional and ‘just get on with the job’ outcomes. Collecting debt is such an incredibly difficult task, particularly with what you have to deal with on a day to day basis. I am not dragged into the matters, which allows me to focus on my work efficiently as a Body Corporate Manager. Remarkably I feel that I know exactly at what step each case is at. This is a clear indicator of the constant and precise communication from Success Law. I feel informed and readily able to update any party of interest…and yet I am not doing all of the work. In summary, in the business world you need other business operators to be professional, efficient and have clarity. This make “your company” look professional and efficient. These businesses are referred to as “gold”. Success Law, you are gold to Whittles and I am at ease and I have the comfort of trust each time we instruct you to commence debt recovery action. You make a potentially horrendous job… easy."

    Active Body Corporate Management

    "We have worked with Ros Janes for over 10 years as the leading expert practitioner in body corporate law in Queensland. As a long time manager of bodies corporate on the Gold Coast, Active Body Corporate Management demands accurate and considered advice for our clients. Ros has proven her credentials and ability time and again in this regard. Our association with Collect Success and Liat Walker has been equally as successful. We have found Collect Success to be the premier body corporate levy arrears collection service in Queensland offering efficient and timely collection for unpaid levies. We have engaged the services of other levy collection firms in the past both on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane but Collect Success have offered the best available service to our clients. To hear that both Ros and Liat have merged their firms to create Success Law is in our opinion an excellent decision and a natural synergy for the two successful leaders in their fields. We look forward to our continued relationship with Success Law which we believe will offer our clients the best legal and levy recovery services available in Queensland."

    "We have dealt with Success Law and its principals Ros Janes and Liat Walker for quite a number of years and in particular Ros Janes whom we have known and dealt with for approximately 15 years. We have engaged the company on numerous occasions regarding legal representation for management rights matters for bodies corporate and engaged their company on behalf of many of the bodies corporate we manage to handle the debt collection in relation to outstanding body corporate levies. We have found the principals and their staff to be of great assistance as they are professional in their approach to all matters and have an extremely good knowledge of the relevant Acts. The result being that they perform their duties in a very professional and efficient manner and ultimately reach a successful outcome on behalf of their client. The company is one of the companies which we recognize as one of our elite professionals in our portfolio and highly recommend them."

  • Kellie Wright

    "I first starting using Liat Walker for debt recovery of body corporate levies back in 2000, before Liat and Ros Janes established Success Law. Success Law specialises in debt recovery, they know the legislation back to front, they feel the frustrations of the body corporate managers, committees and lot owners. Through their many years’ of experience and their extensive knowledge, they have developed best practices to ensure that unpaid levies are recovered in a quick and cost effective manner. With Success Law, committees and body corporate managers can have peace of mind that the correct steps will be taken every time. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Success Law, particularly for recovering unpaid Body Corporate levies."

    Hartley’s Body Corporate Management

    "Hartley’s Body Corporate Management would like to extend our thanks to the Success team for the ethical, professional and timely service that they provide for our clients. We have found the success team very proactive and efficient in all dealings with our clients, with a recent matter that was moved to this firm being fully completed in two months after being with another firm unresolved for over a year."
  • Leanne Cummings

    Committee Member

    "I am a lot owner in a high rise residential complex near Brisbane City, and a long term member of the committee for our building. Liat Walker and her team at Success Law have provided us with highly professional, effective and responsive service in the recovery of unpaid body corporate levies, and have achieved outstanding results for us.” In one matter it took some five years and a number of court proceedings, but Success Law recovered every last cent of the unpaid contributions, penalty interest and recovery costs which we had incurred for a total sum which exceeded $100,000. We were overjoyed with the final outcome. There were some dark days where the actions of the defaulting lot owner did make us despair, and made us wonder if we would ever be successful. Success Law never waivered in their commitment, and their professionalism and dedication to the task, and demonstrated their considerable expertise in navigating the complexities of the legal system to deliver a fantastic final outcome for us. I could not imagine a more difficult recovery action than this particular matter, but Success Law ensured that we were ultimately triumphant. I cannot speak highly enough of Success Law. I would not have a moment’s hesitation in proudly recommending them to anyone requiring the recovery of unpaid body corporate levies."
