What do clients say about Perveez?

” I found Perveez Sethna very professional and understood my matter very well. She was very supportive towards my case.”

“Perveez has been a dream to work with. She provided exceptional, carefully considered work in a timely and consistent fashion. She was always available to take my calls &/or emails and was thoughtful throughout. She is a real asset to your team. Bev has also been incredibly kind, keeping me in the loop with everything and very timely with responding.”

“Perveez was always so professional and yet showed empathy and compassion during an extremely difficult time.”

“I have been very happy with Parry Law. It’s been a very stressful time for me during my divorce, but Bev & Perveez were always there whenever I needed their help. They helped me realise there was light at the end of the tunnel and I felt safe in their hands.”

“At a time when one’s entire world has collapsed around them and there is the emotional trauma to cope with, I would say it is impossible for anyone to deal with the harsh realities of (in my case) a divorce, without trusted care, legal advice & expertise to guide one through that tempest, as Perveez very ably did for me and for which I am truly grateful. I would like t thank Bev for the very professional, caring and considerate way she handled every communication and transaction over the past four and a half years of my case. Bev’s approachability and very pleasant demeanour has been very heartening and truly appreciated.”

“Perveez & Bev were always very helpful and professional and yet I also felt that they were friends, that I could trust them and that they were committed to helping me. I felt that she wanted the best for me and that I wasn’t just a case.”

“Perveez Sethna & Bev Barton are an amazing team. I believe that the average person in the street believes that Solicitors/Barristers are the only winners and that they don’t really care about their clients as it is just a job for them. Well I now know different, I know that they are both kind, caring, understanding and had my best interests at heart. Over and above those attributes I found them to be knowledgeable, professional & prompt and all at a reasonable price. I could not have wished for a better team.”

“Thank you so much for everything. You have made this process so much easier than it could have been with your great work and care. I would never have expected to have got such great results in Court and feel very lucky to have had you represent me”.

“A sincere thank you for all your hard work and especially for your support over the past few months. At last, I can see a way forward and I am most grateful to you”.

“Perveez Sethna has been supportive, focused and completely professional throughout my difficult and emotional divorce and subsequent emigration. I would not hesitate to recommend her!”

Words cannot give my appreciation justice. Perveez Sethna and her secretaries (Bev Barton is worthy of particular mention) were and continue to be superbly efficient and professional. Their hard work and friendliness has been greatly appreciated and has maintained my faith in Parry Law throughout this case.

Perveez’s foresight on all matters on my case was also truly remarkable. I owe its success to her dedication and perseverance, which she showed throughout the three years that she has been supporting me. It goes without saying that I will always refer to your firm if the need ever arises.

Perveez’s excellent motivational and interpersonal skills helped me through many low times that I experienced throughout my acrimonious separation and various stages of divorce.”

“…Through every step of the way, Perveez has been a constant rock. …I really felt I was Perveez’s only client, all the time. I cannot express how much Perveez and Bev have helped me and my daughter in these two years, but if I could I would say she was more than just a lawyer and legal advice.

I cannot put her on a scale of 1-10, as I am sure there is not a lawyer as hardworking, calm, patient and kind as her.”
