What some of our clients say about Rachael

“Our first contact with the team at Mike Lucas Law was when we purchased our first home in New Zealand while still living in the UK.

At the time we worked with Michelle Hattie. We had no idea what we were doing and what we should/shouldn’t include in the sale and purchase agreement.  Within hours of signing the agreement, Michelle was on the phone to us and renegotiated new conditions with the vendor’s solicitor to ensure we were fully protected.

 Since then Rachael Hudson has provided us with up to date conditions for our personal and investment property dealings. She also looks after our Wills and anything else that “smells” legal. Rachael always reviews our agreements with a fine toothcomb to ensure we are protected on our commitments.

A memorable example of this care, which was particularly beneficial to us, was when we were bidding on a mortgagee sale property. There was a risk that the original owner might strip the property or refuse to move out, and because of the terms of the mortgage, we could have been faced with a difficult eviction procedure and with no comeback if anything was stolen or damaged. Rachael was in the background advising, checking and double checking throughout and ensured things were resolved to our complete satisfaction.

The great thing about Rachael is she takes control and just gets on with it, keeping us updated along the way, but without needing to be chased – she just does it.

We have just found the team at Mike Lucas Law to be friendly, professional, knowledgeable, thorough and affordable.  We couldn’t really ask for anything more!”

“I’ve had the pleasure of having Rachael Hudson look after me in the buying & selling of a few properties.

Rachael always makes me feel like I am her only client, and no matter how big or small my question,  she always has time for me.

 Every time I go into Mike Lucas Law Firm I am always greeted with a smile no matter who is at reception.  I always go back because not only does Rachael do an amazing job but everyone goes outside the square to help.

Mike Lucas Law Firm was recommended to me and I am happy to recommend anyone to Mike Lucas Law Firm.”

‘We have worked with Rachael with Mike Lucas Law Firm for about six years.  In that time she has represented us with at least six property sales or purchases, as well as other dealings.  We have always found her to be easy to contact, professional and reliable.  One aspect of the service she offers is her pro-activeness.  We have never had to follow up or make sure she has actioned any aspect of any transaction. One standout incident is her offering to contact another solicitor with a difficult request on our behalf.  We would, and have, recommended Mike Lucas Law Firm and Rachael to friends and associates.’
