…"a book all conveyancing practices should have'…
Bradley Wilde, Solicitor, Access Legal
'An excellent book to help you on the way to a virtual office and paperless practice.'
Elizabeth Szabo – Solicitor
'Most texts on conveyancing espouse the intricacies of this craft and the pitfalls to avoid. This little gem is less about the traps and more about the positive side of running a good and profitable conveyancing practice. I guess no child ever says "I want to be a conveyancer" and it tends to be something that people fall into, and that can be a happy landing! I've heard a lot about the decline of conveyancing and the commoditization of this type of transactional work but Garth has shown that this profession, while benefitting from all the bells and whistles of technology, nevertheless prospers when conveyancers show their human side. It's the biggest capital decision most of us ever make, and we usually want to do it with a real person. The ebook talks about how practitioners can leverage the use of technology and run a successful and also a personally meaningful practice.'
Deborah Culhane, Marshall Dent Lawyers, NSW, 2017
'I found Garth's Gem of a book to be extremely helpful in establishing my new practice. I returned to work primarily in the field of property law after a break of some years. Garth's book was invaluable, his depth of knowledge and breadth of experience cannot be underestimated. His advice provided a steady hand at the wheel during the turbulent embryonic stage of our practice establishment. Garth's advice on the virtues of a virtual office continue to offer assistance and costs savings. I have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending Garth's book to any Conveyancing practitioner.'
Carol Taylor, Solicitor TLC Law, Gold Coast, Queensland, 2017

Since then I have also read his eBook, and received regular updates on helpful tips for running a conveyancing practice. I believe each listener is able get something worthwhile out of the content provided, and because of the range of information, there may very well be quite different benefits for different listeners or readers. I would certainly recommend the webinars and eBook to those in the conveyancing field to assist as part of their practice management development.'
