From John Pastro, Director
Seasons Greetings to all our clients and referral partners! I would like to thank you for entrusting us to be of service throughout the past year. We value your continued trust and confidence as we work hard to deliver excellent legal services.
This has been a year of growth for us. We have gained both new staff and technology, taking our capacity to deliver legal services in our areas of expertise to a new level.
Determination is our mantra. Perseverance is our cornerstone.
Growth, Leaping into the Cloud, PEXA and Other News
The only constant is change and this year was no different. We have leapt into the clouds, with the help of technology! Leap is a database which allows us to provide a faster, paperless way of accessing your files from anywhere at anytime. This is a major step in terms of speed and efficiency and it makes complex bulging files a thing of the past.
Despite all the changes with our technology, we know the cornerstone of good service is people powered. This year we welcomed two new lawyers to the JPLegal team. Amanda Howes began with us at the start of this year to head up our property division. Vanessa Bozinoska started midyear to handle estates and probate law. Many of you may have noted a new friendly voice on the phone. That would be Laura Panozzo who is looking after the front desk, our deeds register and archiving system.
The changes don’t stop there. PEXA is a software that is transforming the conveyancing industry. We adopted PEXA this year to create a simpler and faster way to settle your property. We will be in touch in the new year with more information about how this new system will work for you.
We will be enjoying a break at the end of the year with our family and friends. Our Heidelberg office will close at 1pm on Wednesday the 23rd of December 2015 and reopen on Monday the 11th of January 2016. However our lawyers will have remote internet access to all current files (thanks to Leap) to ensure that all matters continue to be attended to in a timely manner.
The team at JPLegal wish you a safe and happy holiday season. We have more plans and changes in store, we will be in touch in the new year to tell you more!
On A Personal Note…
This year hasn’t just been one full of changes for us professionally, we would like to update you on some changes in our personal lives.
We are happy to share our property lawyer Amanda Howes married her fiancé Kaiz Zaman in the stunning surroundings of the Wananavu Beach Resort, Fiji on Sunday, 15 November.
We would like to wish them all the best for a long and happy future together!
Contrary to popular belief, we do have a sense of humour…
