Reviews

A work related matter reached the point of ongoing stressful HR meetings where I felt dismissed and a friend recommended Mark Shumsky to me. From the outset I noticed great care being taken to understand the overall situation before offering his expert advice. I was impressed with the quick responsiveness to questions and the quality of work presented.Mark has a keen eye for detail and spotted holes in the arguments being made against my request. The stress and tension has been lifted from me allowing me to focus on keeping up with work and looking after my health. Thank you Mark I much appreciate your assistance, knowledge, empathy and professionalism in handling this matter.Five stars!

I can’t speak highly enough about Solicitor, Mark Shumsky. He helped me to deal with a stressful and emotionally draining matter concerning a dispute with multiple parties involved, by the time I reached out to Mark I was losing sleep over this matter.Mark is extremely knowledgeable, professional, clear in his communication, and helped me in a timely manner. He took over the matter to allow me to return to my life without constant heightened stress. Mark not only delivered positive outcome, but every interaction with him was helpful and to the point. He doesn’t waste time, really switched on and works hard to help.I am very grateful for his help and I recommend that anyone who finds themselves dealing with a complicated dispute, where there is a lot of ambiguity and confusing terms, which can be easily misinterpreted - call Mark Shumsky.

It was a time when my parents and I decided to execute the Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship forms to let me represent their legal and medical interests in all situations. I was looking for a lawyer who could speak Russian or Ukraine, my parents’ native languages. This is how I found Mark Shumsky (who spoke perfect Ukrainian) at Stacks Collins Thompson in Hornsby. Legally, my case was rather straightforward. However, the prospective need for having the above-mentioned documents was not cheering on my parents. I’d like to go through all formalities in the most emotionally smooth way for them. Mark was absolutely fantastic in that respect. He comprehensively reviewed all aspects of the very critical authorisations with my parents ensuring each of them fully understood the meaning of the documents and how and under which circumstances they could be used. At the same time, Mark did it in a very warm and supportive family-like conversation. On a separate note, I’d like to mention that I was also very pleased with the cost. We were on a budget and that aspect was important for us.

In October 2016, my wife left the family home with my four beautiful children and the family car whilst I was working. I needed to speak to someone immediately to find out what my rights were and what I should do. I called solicitors and law firms from everywhere, but none of them helped because I earned “too much” for free advice, or they wanted me to sign up and come in for advice. I then called Stacks, Collins and Thompson. Susan Foote spoke to me and helped me understand what I needed to do. She helped me at my lowest point and guided me in what to do before initiating Court proceedings. Once Court proceedings were indeed happening, Sue became my solicitor and fought hard so that I would get access to my children again. I was falsely accused of domestic violence and many other nasty things, but Sue and her fellow practitioners at Stacks, Collins and Thompson fought to clear my name and in the end not only enabled me to get access to my children, but indeed won the case for me. I am now the primary carer of my four beautiful children and I have my car back too. I have Susan Foote, Sara Woolford, Tracey Harris and the rest of David Thompson’s team at Stacks, Collins and Thompson to thank for it.

Thank you for the great work Tracey and Mark. The legal matter was completed to our satisfaction and without delay. Communication was prompt and professional. Job was very well done and with no hassles. I have used few lawyers in the past and always had some problems. Found Tracey and Mark great professionals. Thanks. Lydia
