Benjamin & Leonardo at the High Court of Australia for the hearing of IL v The Queen on 4 April 2017.
I was recently represented by Leo Premutico of law firm Benjamin & Leonardo concerning matters relating to driving offenses.
From the first conference, Mr Premutico behaved in an extremely professional ad courteous manner and demonstrated a complete knowledge of the relevant Law relating to my matter. After reviewing the facts of the matter, he quickly reached a decision regarding the Sections of Law that would apply and outlined the potential penalties relating to the matter.
There were extenuating circumstances relating to my case which were of an extremely sensitive nature. Mr Premutico was at all times respectful and compassionate. Without labouring unnecessarily on the details of the circumstances, he was decisive in the approach that should be taken and articulated the necessary reasons for the recommended approach.
At Court, Mr Premutico was highly effective in delivering the legal arguments relating to the matter and successfully represented the case to achieve a non-conviction, remission of penalty, and other successful outcomes.
Additionally, the costs the professional services of Benjamin & Leonardo were under 1/3 of the estimated of costs provided by previous legal counsel that was previously engaged to represent the matter and who provided misinformation regarding the law, the application of the law, and the associated penalties.
I would not hesitate to recommend the professional legal services of Leo Premutico Partner at Benjamin & Leonardo firm.
