"I consider Robert and Danielle to be “trusted and safe pair of hands” who will respect the originating client relationship."
Leading Melbourne Law Firm
For the sake of my own reputation and practice, I always refer conflicted legal matters or those outside my expertise to Elit Lawyers as I consider Robert and Danielle to be “trusted and safe pair of hands” who will respect the originating client relationship.
"Elit negotiated a settlement which saw all proceedings against my company dismissed, with no order as to costs."
Owner and Managing Director
Major Transport Company
I was recently introduced to Elit Lawyers by McGirr & Snell by my former lawyers after they were required to cease acting for me due to a conflict of interest. The stakes were high as my company was exposed to multiple court proceedings. Elit Lawyers by McGirr & Snell impressed me so much. They went that extra mile and were able to negotiate a settlement which saw all proceedings against my company dismissed, with no order as to costs. I can’t thank Elit enough.
"I was immediately impressed by their ability to assume conduct quickly and get across all the legal issues..."
Senior Victorian Litigator
As a senior lawyer working at a national law firm, conflicts come up from time to time. Most recently, I was conflicted from acting for a client when an insurance issue arose. I referred the client directly to Elit Lawyers by McGirr & Snell and was immediately impressed by their ability to assume conduct quickly and get across all the legal issues. My client contacted me a few months after achieving an outstanding result and was very appreciative of the referral to your terrific firm.

"This was a “David v Goliath” fight as our dispute was with a large global corporation. The attention, compassion and guidance that Danielle and the team showed us was absolutely incredible."
CEO & Founder
National mental-health support organisation
We recently instructed Danielle from Elit Lawyers by McGirr & Snell to help with a legal dispute. As a small purpose led business, this was a “David v Goliath” fight as our dispute was with a large global corporation. This dispute was during a very emotional time as we were in the middle of a global pandemic, Melbourne’s sixth lockdown, homeschooling and no childcare – all while trying to keep our small business alive.
The attention, compassion and guidance that Danielle and the team showed us was absolutely incredible. I have 10 years legal experience myself and even with that, I was reluctant to litigate, especially during such a difficult time. However Danielle always gave us confidence in knowing that she was in our corner and always working for our best interests, so my reluctance was quickly appeased.
Today I am pleased to share that David defeated Goliath and we could not be more thrilled with the result we received thanks to Danielle and the team from Elit Lawyers. Danielle not only saved our company, but ensured that we could continue doing the good work we were previously and helping improve the lives and mental health of mothers across Australia.
I could not recommend Danielle and the team from Elit Lawyers more highly. I am *hoping* that I will never need their services again, but feel very reassured knowing they are there and always in my corner.
Thank you Danielle and team.
