Testimonials

I have engaged Danny King Legal across a variety of issues over the past 7 years and can only sing their praises. Whether working with Danny herself, or one of her stellar team members, the advice I’ve received has always been helpful, concise, articulate and clear. As someone without a legal background, her team has carefully explained the complexities of certain issues to me, and equipped me with enough information to feel empowered to make a right decision for my organisation.

Emily Collins, Managing Director of Sound NSW

As a consistently high performing employee suddenly being thrust into a false allegation against you in the workplace, is debilitating and confusing. Danny King Legal came highly recommended from a colleague. At our initial meeting, Sonia Chandra (DK Partner) and Natasha Prasad (DK Solicitor) took the time to hear my case in detail and then map a path forward clearly explaining my legal rights.

I had an issue with a non compete with my former employer. Elijah and Sonia managed to get me out of the non compete in its entirety with no fuss (just a single email from them to my former employer).

There are several reasons: Trust is however the big one. I know that I will be looked after – both from a legal perspective, but also in all of those ancillary ways that make a good customer experience.

Employer client

From our first meeting I had the confidence that Danny was an expert in employment law and the firm the required experience and resources. I engaged DKL not just for their competence but rather that I trusted Danny and her team were going to look after me personally and not just mechanically step through the legal process.
