Commitment to our clients.

Here at Mendis & Gibson Lawyers, we have had many success stories and celebratory wins for our satisfied clients. We continue to strive for the best outcomes for our clients. In our legal profession, results matter. Clients come to us seeking a positive outcome and we are always here to ensure we deliver our best professionally for our clients. There are matters where our duty is beyond just winning or losing but to ensure we legally establish the best situation for everyone involved, especially in cases involving Children. In sensitive cases, dealing with vulnerable groups we prioritise the safety and importance in terms of cost and duration with least negative impact. We also represent our clients who choose to negotiate a settlement with opposing parties to ensure an equitable result is achieved. Going to court is often a very daunting process and we understand the emotional stress that our clients face in dispute and claim matters. In such cases, we advise clients on their strengths and weakness in the case and present to them the various pathways for our clients to make a value judgement comparing cost, and their stronghold and thresholds in the matter.
We offer competitive fees in majority of the matters and we strive to keep legal fees affordable. We cater to commercial clients and to our community who are at the heart of what we do. We have partnered with third party financial institutions to provide flexible payment plans for those in need of financial assistance.
