Dora, I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to extend my heartfelt gratitude for your exceptional efforts in ensuring the successful settlement of Quest Maribyrnong. Your hard work and dedication have truly made a difference, and I am immensely grateful for your support throughout the process. Your unwavering support and assistance have been instrumental in facilitating this transaction, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with you and Steve on this project. I firmly believe that this successful settlement is a testament to your expertise, professionalism, and commitment to achieving the best outcomes for your clients. Your diligent efforts have not only brought about a favourable resolution but have also strengthened our professional relationship. Once again, thank you for your hard work, dedication, and collaboration throughout the process.
Milicevic Lawyers, particularly through my extensive interaction with Steven Milicevic over the past decade, has consistently delivered exceptional service. Their approachability and clear communication style have made the legal process remarkably straightforward. Milicevic Lawyers skillfully balances legal expertise with a practical, jargon-free approach, ensuring a smooth and understandable experience. From adeptly handling business structuring to facilitating seamless business purchases and sales, their expertise has proven invaluable, and a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies within these realms has consistently instilled confidence and eased the complexities of the business landscape. Milicevic Lawyers' steadfast commitment to delivering exceptional service across the spectrum of business transactions is why they are a go-to legal partner for multifaceted business needs. Highly recommended for their comprehensive and reliable legal counsel.

Milicevic Lawyers have acted on my behalf in respect to the purchases of my four Quest franchises. Their professional manner and knowledge of the Quest franchise model made for a very smooth and easy process on the purchases and sales. Their communication, both verbally and in writing, was in an easy-to-understand format, which also helped the process. Steve Milicevic has also acted on my behalf in respect to a rent review of one of my properties. Once again, Steve made the whole process complication-free which made the rent review a very straightforward process. I would not hesitate in recommending Milicevic Lawyers to represent you with the purchase or sale of your Quest franchise or rent review.
Phil Willey
Franchise Owner
I have been using Milicevic Lawyers for around 3 years now for my business and personal legal matters after having them recommended to me by my accountant. They have completed share sale agreements, business contracts of sale as well as some other smaller personal matters. Milicevic Lawyers have always provided a very thorough service and Steve is one of the most efficient people I have encountered in my professional career. Steve has always been willing to help with large and small problems and was beside me all the way through a very prolonged business purchase. His advice along the way was always very thorough but easy to understand and has proven to be extremely accurate and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending Milicevic Lawyers to help you through both business and personal legal matters.
Mark Stansall
Our accounting practice initially commenced work with Steve and his team at Milicevic Lawyers through a referral. His attention to detail, in particular contract review and negotiations, have resulted in many of our clients being thoroughly impressed with their individual outcomes. Over the last few years, we have continued to refer and liaise with Milicevic Lawyers on a number of legal issues and continue to be satisfied with their professional approach in all aspects.
Joe Santomartino
As the CEO of a community and not for profit organisation, I am always looking for talents who will support our cause. Steve has presented at our Community Information Sessions on different Powers of Attorney to our elderly community members and their families. Feedback from all the participants was absolutely fantastic. They appreciated Steve’s effort and left the sessions equipped with better understanding and knowledge of the topics presented. Keep up the great work!
Franci Buljat
“Having Steven and his team in your corner is priceless. They are very professional, prompt, very knowledgeable and they are so easy to work with. I know that my clients are in safe hands when I refer them to Milicevic Lawyers.”
Anton Mihok
"I had the pleasure of having Gad Kolsky from Milicevic Lawyers represent me in my dispute against my employer. He helped expose the toxicity and systemic bullying in our workplace which I thought was impossible since I’ve had to deal with it for years! Not only was he successful in getting baseless and petty allegations against me dropped, he was able to help me keep my job which i love. He fought for my rights with his extensive experience of the law and swiftly made my working life so much better by standing up for me when I thought I didn’t have a voice. It was the most stressful time in my career, and he supported me from start to finish, making sure I understood all my rights and he helped me understand difficult legal jargon. He has given me newfound confidence, and was even so monumental in helping others come forward to voice their complaints too when they have given up hope for change. I highly recommend Gad for all things legal. Thank you again Gad and team for the incredible service! I am eternally grateful for all your hard work!"
