Name *
The team at Michael Thornton has real strength of character and resolve which my whole family heavily relied upon during our leaky building claim. They were able to say just the right things at just the right time, and at the very end they came through for us when it mattered the most.
- Bruce Trotter
We engaged Michael to advise us about a commercial property that had problems caused by inadequate specification and poor construction. Michael’s advice and process resulted in a successful claim against the construction company who paid a significant part of the cost of repair without us having to resort to litigation. Result!
- Andy McDowell
Mike represented me when a home I had previously owned became leaky and I was subject to a claim. He was very detailed in his advice and the matter was settled in a calm and orderly fashion. Given this was not my area of expertise and my understanding of the process was limited, it was great to have him in my corner getting me through the claims process. I would personally endorse Mike in this area and would happily talk to anyone directly about him.
- Pip Mayne
