Professional and personal service

2 years ago
We were fortunate to have John Eylander recommended to us for a matter in the Supreme Court. His professionalism and depth of knowledge was re-assuring in a stressful situation. To be able to add a genuine personal care factor is an added bonus of John's service.

Insurance Common Law Claims

In my last seven years as an Insurance Loss Adjuster, I consulted John Eylander on a wide range of subjects when investigating Common Law claims. I always found his advice to be professional, valuable, unbiased and very beneficial for me to provide an accurate appraisal of each claim both from the viewpoint of the plaintiff and the defendant. I have no hesitation in recommending John for any one seeking the very best of legal advice.

Unfair Dismissal & QCAT Neighbourhood Dispute

4 years ago
We first met John Eylander 8 years ago regarding my husbands workplace injury and unfair dismissal. John professionally took us through the long and complex process, resulting in a successful outcome. We recently sought John™s expertise again regarding a QCAT Neighbourhood Dispute. John is extremely knowledgeable & his clear, concise advice has proven to be invaluable. No matter the issue and how stressed you are, John has a magical friendly way of communication, resulting in you feeling good and relaxed after speaking with him. We cannot thank John enough and highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal expertise. Congratulations on becoming a Barrister John, and thank you for remaining in Cairns.
