We were recommended Emma at Winter Legal and from the very first phone call I can see why. Emma was always so professional and attentive, yet so easy to talk to and explained everything simply so it was easy to understand.

I have since recommended Emma and Winter Legal to a few family and friends since we were so impressed.

Nothing was ever to hard or complex and you were always available to support me no matter how difficult or personal.

Your name will be the first I give my relatives and friends in Sydney if they ever ask for a reputable compassionate Lawyer.

Emma [or Winter Legal] helped us navigate though what quickly became a very complicated will that took over 2 years to finalise.There were 22 beneficiaries, most of them charities and all had to be notified & kept in the loop for that long time. As well the will was complicated by events occurring between its writing and my aunt's death. Emma was always available when needed and working to prevent any future problems.


I am very glad that Emma Rowles was recommended to me. Emma was very helpful to me and did so with care and compassion. Thank you, Emma. Regards,

Thank you Emma for everything you did for me. I knew from the outset that you are an expert in your specialisation of law, and this gave me a sense of confidence that the carriage of the matter would be professionally and personally handled. Your dedication to the matter was outstanding, as witnessed by your humanistic and compassionate handling of what were some uncomfortable re-living of past events for me. You demonstrated that you are in the upper echelon of your profession and I could not have asked for a better outcome, given the difficulties posed by the negotiations for that outcome. I have no hesitation in recommending you in particular, and Winter Legal in general, to anyone who needs compassion, determination to achieve an equitable outcome, and that precious personal touch that makes the experience of negotiation so much less onerous to those involved.


Thank you Emma and Winter Legal for your thorough, supportive, patient and caring approach. Your assistance was a comforting note in an otherwise difficult situation and gave peace of mind to our family.

I have been a client of Winter Legal since the early 1970’s and have had the benefit of their counsel since then on a number of matters. I recently contacted Emma for advice on a property settlement and her patience and calm manner was instrumental in assisting me with the completion of the transaction.. I would have no hesitation in recommending Winter Legal to my associates and family for legal assistance and/or advice.
