"We are a community organisation offering a wide range of property, commercial and social services to the Indigenous community of the Northern Rivers. We have used Melissa at Hinterland Legal for all our legal needs for several years now and have found her advice to always be quick, precise and effective. She is generous with her time and expertise and  goes above and beyond the call of duty each time to solve our problems as they arise. I can recommend Melissa as a lawyer to any organisation or business wanting professional yet considerate service from a lawyer."

Russell Freeburn CEO Buyinbin Aboriginal Corporation


"Melissa did an outstanding job for me. I had a delicate and difficult dispute with my employer that ended up before the Industrial Relations Commission. Melissa maneuvered and guided me throughout the matter  in an intelligent yet practical way. She was generous with her discounts as well."

Debra Vahaba


"Melissa at Hinterland Legal has provided legal services to Vitality4Life for many years now and during that time our business has grown from an Australian sales business to an international one. We rely on Melissa for the full breadth of legal issues that a business like ours needs, from commercial and contractual law, employment issues, property as well as specialist intellectual property. Melissa is now an important part of the Vitality4Life team, giving our business the high level legal support with a quick turnaround that is critical to us."

Roger Akins Managing Director Vitality4Life Pty Ltd


"Choosing legal advice was a big step for our small IT business and we have been fortunate in finding Melissa. Her easy to understand, down to earth approach and depth of knowledge has given us confidence that we made the right decision.  Her passion for small business is clear and we will definately stay with her as we grow."
