Easy to use web site, friendly and helpful assistance in finalizing my fathers estate.
Thank you for a very efficient and friendly service. I was very impressed by the way you made applying for probate a simple process.

I have already recommended your service to others and I am sure I will use your company for any other legal matters I have to deal with. I will be forever grateful for your help at this very stressful time.
The process of getting Letters of Administration was simple and efficient.
Dear Ms Dickens Thank you, thank you, thank you, very much! Congratulations. This is your success! I am now rather relieved … Kind regards a very happy [Mr] Piderman
Matthew made the whole experience pleasant. He was most helpful, informative & knowledgeable. Would certainly recommend your firm.
I have found the services of [Matthew Gunn] and Ms. Dickens very efficient. I propose to rewrite my will in coming weeks and will use your services.
Thank you all your help and making it such a painless process.
Thank you. I was very satisfied with the professionalism of service I received from Perth Probate Centre. The entire process was efficient, beginning with your ‘robot receptionist’ and particularly with my meeting with Krysten Russo-Battagliolo from your team. I am strongly considering using your Flat Rate settlement services following the sale of the property from the estate. I will recommend your services to my friends and colleagues. Regards Gary Wayne
At a very distressing time, Krysten made the process of gaining probate easy. She was very professional but also sensitive and caring. I would and will recommend Birman & Ride in the future.
Very efficient and friendly service. Would definitely recommend your services in the future
We have been so pleased with the service offered and delivered by Birman and Ride – the service has been nothing short of excellent – we have dealt with both Matthew and Lucy who have both delivered prompt and professional service. There have been some delays caused by third parties and we have been kept informed every step of the way, we have never been left in the dark about anything – a copy of all correspondence has been sent to us and we at all times have been kept informed by Lucy as to the progression of our application – as I have already stated their service has been outstanding – nothing could have been done better. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anybody – in fact I have already done so.
Hi Krysten, sorry I missed you today. I wanted to thank you personally for you efficiency, professionalism and support processing the probate and property issues in relation to my father. Your help has been a great relief and has eased my burdens greatly. Thank you very much for your assistance. Warm regards
Thank you Matthew, I really appreciate what you have done to assist me in this difficult time, I will definitely be using your service to do my Will etc and will pass on your details to my family if they wish you to do theirs as well. Many thanks
Very helpful and understood all the information. Also [Krysten] was very pleasant and understanding.

I would not hesitate to recommend the team at Perth Probate Centre, thank you so much for making this sad and stressful processes so easy for me.
I could not fault the service we received from Lucy Dickens she was very efficient and got things in motion very quickly. Lucy kept us informed during the applying for probate process and will have no hesitation in recommending Birman and Ride to anyone when the topic arises during conversations.

All matters relating to filing a recent Grant of Probate were conducted efficiently and professionally. I would have no hesitation in recommending this firm for future business.
Birman & Ride handled a probate process for us as well as drawing up our wills. The service was immediate and reasonably priced in comparison to other legal firms we contacted. Staff were a pleasure to deal with and provided options, outlining any potential implications for us to consider.
Great no rush service with clear cut knowledgeable information and the price was the best as I was quoted $2200 to $2600 for the same service.
Great service great prices would recommend to anybody in need of a lawyer if they were going through the same thing
Very happy with the service provided recently by Matthew Gunn. He knew everything I needed to know, was personable, efficient & helpful with his advice. He has made a fine impression on me & reflects well on your firm. I am very pleased to have chosen your company to assist me.
Matthew Gunn made the task of applying for probate very uncomplicated, almost enjoyable! Matthew was very respectful, decisive and knowledgeable on all probate matters and I was in and out of the office within an hour. I appreciated the wall screen which allowed for easy reading and an easy view of what Matthew was typing. I have given family and friends information regarding this quick, low cost service.
Lucy it has been a pleasure dealing with you also and you have helped at every turn. You will be my first port of call should I need legal assistance in the future. Thanks so much to you and all concerned.

Thank you Matthew and the team at probate on the spot for helping me at what is such an emotional time and making a smooth transition.
Hi Matthew, Hi 5 mate! Thanks for that. I guess everything is now complete!!? As for the $11.30 – I was going to say you could by me a beer. But since I’m on the other side of the country that might be a bit difficult, so I’ll buy myself one! … thanks for your help, efficiency and professionalism! Anything else, I’ll definitely be in touch.
Matthew Gunn provided me with very efficient support in the application for the Grant of Probate on behalf of my late father. A subsequent minor query from the Court was handled effectively and with little fuss, resulting in a speedily turnaround of the Grant. All-in-all a good experience and money well spent. Thank you Matthew.
Am very pleased with the service I received , staff were very friendly and helpful and my visit was dealt with professionally and quickly.
Even though the task that Birman & Ride carried out for me was quite a small matter, Matthew made it all seamless and trouble free. He explained things very clearly and I was very pleased with the timely outcome.
Very professional, very personable, and reasonably priced. I was greatly impressed with the service from both Lucy Dickens and Michael Hodgkins. I was kept informed throughout the entire process. I would thoroughly recommend Birman and Ride.
Dear Lucy, Thank you for all of the work and the fine service.
Not sure how anyone could deal with a will without appointment of a team of lawyers, court hearings and the like. Just want to thank the firm and you [Lucy] personally for navigating me through the system and finalizing a lot of the settlement admin.
Hi Matthew, Excellent … Thanks for the good work.
Warm Welcome – Fast Service – Easy Access Reception – Great explanations – central location – email updates and when I get some more time will be visiting you to do my own will.

Matthew Gunn made a job that is not that pleasant simple and quick. I was initially a bit daunted by the probate process. Thanks for your help. Cost was very reasonable.
Let me put it this way… I tell every person I know that your service is GREAT. Every person I dealt with about our requests was wonderful in person and on the phone. I was kept up to date on details. And being ex military that is important to me. Also knowing the costs up front is a great idea.
Your assistance, persistence and resourcefulness … has been very helpful. Please accept my sincere thanks. Your efforts have been appreciated. If I have any further problems I will contact you again as I have been very impressed with your service.
Efficient and comprehensive, provide services as described in proposal within the quoted costs.

I will certainly recommend your firm to others should the opportunity arise.

Friendly service. Explained to us in terms we could easily understand. Also liked the fixed cost.
Matt was fantastic. He was extremely friendly, polite and seemed very knowledgeable. My wife and I will be booking in to get our Wills done through your company due to Matt’s professionalism and friendly nature.

Very professional, prompt and efficient. Made everything so easy for me in a time off stress.
Knowing that everything that needed to be done was done by a professional who knew exactly what to do. Very well priced as well. No improvement needed.
It was very easy to get in and see the lawyers. It cost us about 1/3 of what we were quoted by a local firm. The people we saw all made us very comfortable each time we saw them.
James was great he answered all my questions and made me feel I picked the right lawyers. No need for improvement we will be using your company again to make our wills.
Friendly, helpful staff who made us feel like we are in good hands.

Lucy, … Can I also thank you for your help in this matter you made the entire process painless for me. Can I also commend you on your professional, courteous and efficient approach in my dealings with you. These are rare qualities in people today. You are a credit to yourself and your firm and I would not hesitate to recommended you.
Thank you for organising this Probate of the will for my deceased mother. It was so easily organised through your company via Lucy. It was sad enough to lose my mother and the last thing one needs following a death of a loved one is to have the stress of finalising all the paperwork.
Michael, Thank you for the probate letter. Both yours and Rachael’s expertise and professionalism were important in reaching this result.
Prompt action, clear explanations given where necessary and staff were helpful, informative and courteous.
Very prompt & efficient service, plus good advice. We liked the friendly approach we had when talking with Rachael, Michael & Lucy. Thank you.
Thank you for preparing these documents in such a timely fashion. We very much appreciate your immediate attention which clearly enables us to resolve these matters as quickly as possible.
Thank you for being so efficient.
Birman and Ride were efficient and professional. They offered me other services as well. The online appointment booking system worked well for me.
The service was very efficient and the lawyer Michael and legal executive Rachael were sincere and helped me through this difficult time and I thank them very much.
One expects legal language to overbear, however the assistance and understanding of Rachel was very pleasant and in standard laymen terms which I much appreciated. Michael ensured that I felt very comfortable with my trust in this company. Thank you both for your efforts.
That we had experienced a professional and considered interview when discussing the options at a meeting we attended to apply for Probate for our late mothers estate – that the process was explained in a way we felt comfortable with, and questions we asked were answered simply and in a manner we could understand without legal jargon clouding the issues. We were made to feel at ease throughout, and our consideration appeared foremost in the mind of Rachael Coffey who was taking us through the requirements of the process, and when we had concluded our deliberations we were offered refreshments whilst we waited for the finished documents to be drawn up after-which the company solicitor attended to sign after witnessing our signatures and again a considered, polite, and thoughtful approach was made where we were given certified copies of various documents for our benefit. Once the finished Probate application was completed, we left knowing that the whole process had been undertaken in an un-hurried manner, to our complete satisfaction, and that the Probate documentation would be sent off as required, and that we would be notified when in due course when it was issued.
Efficient, friendly and professional. I appreciate all your help in this matter and have recommended your firm to a friend who may have need of your services. Many thanks.
The efficiency, professionalism & helpfulness of both Michael & then Rachael with my parents making their wills, and subsequently, my having to apply for probate for both of my parents.
I was very impressed with the professional procedures carried on through my mothers Probate and settlement of the estate. This [includes] documentation and identifying each document coded number. Many thanks to Bethany Moller and Lucy Newson who handled the settlement and Scott Young who handled the Probate of the Will. Best wishes.
Services & fees clearly itemised in your documentation.
It was friendly, efficient, effective and lived up to all promises.
We found Rachael Coffey to be friendly, helpful and professional in our dealings with Birman & Ride, so much so we will have them attend to other matters outstanding in the near future.
Hello Toby… I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance and professionalism and for your reliability in returning my calls when it was necessary for me to ring you about the above estate. I will keep your firm in mind should I, or colleagues and friends, needs legal assistance in the future.
Dear Michael & Toby, thank you once again for helping me move into the next phase of my life. Your authentic input in my life is very much appreciate
I am writing to sincerely commend one of your team, Tobias Young, for his dedication, patience and professionalism in managing my late mother’s estate. These things can be very complex and in my mother’s case this was particularly so … Tobias at no time sides or was bias and this is what makes him a true professional. I will be recommending your firm and Tobias to others.
I wish to place on notice my sincerest thanks to Miss Sharminie Perera, for her expertise, knowledge and assistance with her dealings with [us] over the estate of my late Aunt’s will. At all times I found her very cooperative and helpful. She went out of her way to ensure we were kept abreast of any developments in the whole process. I have referred your company’s name to friends and I know from having dealt with Birman & Ride over 20 years or more, I have the utmost trust in the integrity and honesty of the company. Sharminie should be congratulated on her work.
Hi Michael, Thanks again for yours and Rachael’s help and advice – it has been much appreciated.
I think you are onto a bit of a winner with your concept of “probate while you wait”. Your approach is good … I will be recommending you to others if the need arises.
As executor, you take a lot of care and responsibility. But what, if anything, are you entitled to?
Before finalising the estate, take steps necessary to protect yourself from claims and take advantage of protections offered by the law of Western Australia.
Lawyers have had a lot of bad press over the years – much of it probably well-deserved. However, times are changing. The best modern law firms are highly focussed on providing the optimal client experience and solving their clients’ problems, generally at fixed prices.
