Great customer service. Will be using them again. Went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly even when not everything went according to plan.

Even though we experienced problems at the other end, Gianni Romano did everything in his power to ensure the process was seamless, his professional manner and can-do attitude was very much appreciated. We will be using GSR again, and I will refer GSR at any opportunity Read more

Our supervising Solicitors Mr Alfio Romano & Mr Gianni Romano are also always available and on hand for more complex legal advice on property law issues.
What do you like most about your job?
We take pleasure in achieving the best outcomes for our clients and resolving their problems no matter which area they may be; whether it be tax advice, estate planning or business structuring that will save them money, reviews of contract and lease documents to give them peace of mind and protect them from litigation or perhaps in family law in negotiating a settlement that really benefits them and is catered to their individual requirements.
What questions should a customer ask to hire the right service professional?
When it comes to conveyancing, you must be careful of the 'cut-price' budget conveyancing providers who won't give you the time of day. Also it is often these firms that charge hidden extra costs like extra search fees for every search ordered, or a separate settlement fee, or a further fee for extensions of finance or settlement dates etc. We have no hidden fees, just a once-off payment which can even be paid out of the settlement funds so as to not impact your cashflow!
What are the typical things that you need to know before you can provide a quote to a customer?
In the legal profession it is difficult to give fixed fee quotes, and most firms charge on a time cost basis. Most simple standard jobs can be quoted with ease for example standard conveyancing, a deceased estate or new lease. However in some circumstances for us to adequately assess the costs involved with taking on your job we will need to meet with you for a no-obligation, entirely free meeting to discuss your matter and what you wish to achieve.
What makes your pricing competitive?
We have all the experience of the top-tier big city firms in various different areas of law but without all their overheads! We do not time-cost like most other firms which means you get one-on-one legal advice worthy of a top-tier price for a fixed amount or agreed price consistently below the average in the industry.
How do you normally charge for your service?
We normally charge on a fixed fee basis, but with matters of litigation, family law or criminal law and other matters where it is difficult to know what costs are involved from the outset we give you upper and lower estimates that we stick to!
What experience, skills, qualifications or training do you have to make you the right person for the job?
The principal of the firm, Mr Alfio Romano, who is a Lawyer, Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser, holds a Commerce degree, an Honours Degree in Law and a Master of Laws and has over 35 years of experience in the law in a vast range of areas
Why should a customer hire you over another service provider?
You can be confident you are getting the very best legal advice straight from the top-tier at a cost well below that of the large city firms! With us you will get attention to detail and one-on-one contact, rather than just being a file number in the system.
What makes you the most reliable and trustworthy person for the job?
The principal of the firm, Mr Alfio Romano, has over 35 years of experience in the law in a vast range of areas!
His son, Mr Gianni Romano, is a young solicitor with flair who despite only being admitted to the field in early 2012, has over 7 years experience in the industry!
Our head conveyancer, Jenny White, has over 30 years personal experience working in the field of conveyancing!
Are you an insured business and do you guarantee your work?
As a law firm in Queensland we are a practice who is fully insured and whose liability is limited by a scheme approved under professional standards legislation.
We fully guarantee our services and the bulk of our work comes from word-of-mouth referrals so if you are ever not 100% satisfied with our services we will do everything possible to ensure we can fix that!
Is there a particular aspect of your trade or industry that you specialise in?
We specialise in many areas of law including conveyancing, property, criminal, family, commercial, tax, wills and estates (succession) law!
How can a customer save money before you start the work? Please give 3 tips
We may be able to review your appointment of agency forms if selling a house and we can negotiate a lower commission rate for you or suggest areas where you may be able to save on costs!
Similarly, we can review a contract for you BEFORE signing to make sure your interests are fully protected so we can pre-empt any potential issues and stop them from popping up!
