Our Clients

Engaged NECA Legal for some company training at our office. The response from those who attended was overwhelmingly positive. The course was well structured and tailored to our needs.

Rainer Jensen, Pty Ltd

Thanks heaps.  You guys are awesome!

Paul Fleming, Optical Terminations

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for assistance with recovering money from a Melbourne based builder who ‘simply’ chose not to pay us for a job we completed at Westfield Belconnen ACT.

Everyone from that I dealt with was amazingly helpful and guided me throughout the process. Of course… it helps that the outcome was successful and we recovered all monies – but I’m positive in saying that this wouldn’t have happened if I didn’t have your help.

Thank you again!

Dijanna Ratajkoski , BNV Electrical

On behalf of Network Electrical Services, we would like sincerely thank you for an outstanding job on our very successful adjudication process.

We cannot say enough in relation to the professionalism, accuracy, speed and enthusiasm Stafford and the team have shown, particularly with the short time frames that we have had to work with.

We look forward to working together again on our next adventure.

Great work Guys thanks again.

Chris Tarbuck, Network Electrical Services

This is the first time we have use your team l for this type of service and I’m impressed I didn’t think we would get paid.

Many Thanks

Cassandra Macqueen, Hornsby Electric

I recently had a customer who refused to pay the final $800 on his bill. I had made the mistake of not having a contract & also underestimating the cost to finish the job in an email to my customer. Because of this, I thought I didn’t stand a chance, but after a letter from NECA Legal asking to compromise at $400 for the final payment, my customer paid the $400.  I am a small business, only working alone, so I only use a small portion of CTI services, but I was more than satisfied with the result and believe it’s definitely worthwhile being a member, even for a sole trader like myself.’
