Some close friends had recently purchased their first home using Webster Malcolm as they are based in the area and raved about them. So when we suddenly found “the one”, just before Christmas I might add, we didn’t hesitate to call Webster Malcolm. Patrick acted quickly with advice and gave us thorough instructions – we had absolutely no clue what legal steps we needed to take! As it was the busiest time of the year, it was difficult for us to take time off work to organise the mound of paperwork required; so I was constantly calling Patrick before work, during lunch and after hours. He was always contactable and ready with the information we needed. When the time came to meet, he was very flexible with times and locations – as we are not based in the area – and kept things as brief as possible without leaving us feeling overwhelmed with legal jargon. I would certainly recommend Webster Malcolm’s services, especially for people like us with little to no knowledge on the process.
I engaged Webster Malcolm for setting up a family trust. Les Miller was my lawyer and from the first moment I felt it was a right choice. Les and his team was professional, knowledgeable and dealt with the matter swiftly and effectively. More importantly, they were able to met the deadline in a short time-frame. My family and I were looked after very well and we felt assured. I would definitely recommend Webster Malcolm to others because I feel that they are reliable and can be depended upon.

I have known Jackie for about 10 years now, she has helped me with a number of things over the years. Mainly with buying and selling property, my will. She has also been a great help around the custody of my kids and my divorce. Jackie has been great to deal with, if I happen to pop in without an appointment she sees me and when I phone her up she will always get back to me quickly.
Jess McClean – First Time Property Buyer
I am the Administration Manager at Chocolate Brown, which is an award winning café and Chocolate factory in Warkworth. It is my family’s business. At 20 years of age I have purchased my first property- a section in Warkworth- which is awesome and crazy!
On my parent’s advice I went to Webster Malcolm to help me with the purchase process. There are many details to understand but Les Miller was great to work with. He explained things in a simple, realistic way. He talked me through everything I needed to know. I am really grateful to the team for this and would recommend them as a very approachable firm.
Peter and Trisha Quinn – Business Owners
Four and a half years ago my husband and I had the opportunity to buy a business and we realised we needed legal advice. We went to Webster Malcolm and they gave us excellent, reasonable advice as this was the first time we had ever purchased a business. Things that we had never thought of were explained to us. We took a simple agreement signed with the vendors of the business to Webster Malcolm and they were able to convert our rough A4 written offer into a well- documented legal agreement.
They gave us complete peace of mind, buying the business, when we were dealing with many other aspects of setting up a business. The business is going well and we have now purchased a new home. We found Webster Malcolm were very thorough in helping us get everything we needed and wanted. They explained things like guarantees, Lim reports and building warranties. We cannot recommend them enough. We really rate them.
Doug Ansford – Estate and Retirement Planning
I first met John Allen when he first came to Warkworth to practise law quite a few years ago. I was very impressed with the way he managed a property purchase for me. Since then he has given me excellent advice regarding my will and my financial affairs. I have the view that it makes real sense to leave professional matters of law to people who are trained and skilled and can match expert advice to our personal needs.
My latest step has been to buy a villa at Somerset Falls and I am very appreciative of the peace of mind I have been given over this process. The people at Webster Malcolm are a totally professional team that I would willingly recommend to anyone needing legal advice.
Matt Watts & Sarah Collings – Business Owners
We own the little butchery in Matakana. We were in Australia when we heard that the business was on the market. We were keen to buy the butchery and come home to NZ.
We needed legal advice to manage the purchase process. We were advised to use John so we contacted him and he was happy to take us through the steps to own the business.
Even though most of the detail was managed by email everything went “fast and easy” and we soon owned our first business!
We can really recommend this team. We trusted them with our money and John was great in explaining the steps to take when buying your first business.
It was a great experience. Our business is running well.
Tony and Dianne Niccolls – Long Term Clients
As local farmers, we’ve done a number of projects, including land sales. When it came to legal advice we were not looking for a “whizz kid” but for a lawyer who was willing to listen. John has always done what was necessary. He is knowledgeable about detail such as working with Auckland Council.
We find that this team always gives us prompt attention. We feel there is a “solid” feel about the way the firm deals with its clients.
They demonstrate integrity.
