I would sincerely like to thank Lecia Wood from DW Fox Tucker Lawyers for her support in helping us through a difficult time.

Myself, along with my family are involved in an inheritance claim against my late Mother’s Estate which has been emotionally draining to say the least.

Lecia’s extensive professional knowledge has put my mind at ease and given me a sense of calmness working through our matter.

Lecia is responsive to my questions, keeps me well informed and delivers all information and documents on time.  Her guidance, patience and prompt communications are making this long, tedious process easier to deal with.

She explains strategies, recommendations, and procedures thoroughly and shows a strong desire to help.

Lecia has always shown a personal, compassionate, genuine, and caring nature and has given me reassurance whenever I’ve had overwhelming feelings of helplessness regarding our matter.

I would highly recommend engaging Lecia’s services, should you require a Special Council with a high level of expertise.  

She is a credit to your profession and a valuable asset to your company.

Thank you once again Lecia Wood.

Making the decision to consult a lawyer is scary. To most of us the law is the law, we think it as a relatively simple line to follow, there is black and white, no shades of grey. After taking that step to hire a lawyer, you become exposed to a giant world of unknown and thousands of areas of grey. The law is not simple, it is not easy and it is confusing and overwhelming, and honestly its terrifying. Finding the perfect person to help you navigate this unknown is vital. Lecia is just this person. She is calm, patient and has an awe-inspiring level of understanding for the law, but also for human emotion. She navigated and helped us to negotiate a path through our messy legal battle. Lecia always ensured that we felt heard, that our voices mattered and were recognised by the opposing party. 

There was a significant amount of behind the scenes work that she handled and then would explain to us step by step so we felt included in the process. For 12 months, Lecia was part of our lives. For us, she went beyond the duty of just a lawyer, as our personal lives also included a high-risk pregnancy, on top of the law suit we decided to commence. 

Lecia is kind, caring, compassionate, a little scary (but in a good way), driven, knowledgeable and everything anyone would want when hiring a lawyer. We are incredibly lucky to have had her on our side, and are beyond grateful for all she did for us.
