Intervention Order Law Case

My name is Emily K. and I have worked as a journalist at SBS and the Greek radio station 3xy Radio Hellas in Melbourne for many years until recently.

I have also worked in the legal and medical sector for over 35 years, as a NAATI Level 3 Interpreter and I have seen many cases and scenarios with people

involved in litigation, which has been a difficult journey to them, with sentiments of stress, agony and many a times with great sadness.

I have witnessed situations of how the lay person is struggling to find their justice and closure in incomprehensible processes within the legal world.

Evolving within these medico- legal and media circles, I have witnessed and have come across people who had expressed their appreciation and gratitude for

litigation handled by Law firms which have stood out for all the right reasons.

I chose one which was continuously respected and praised by so many: VELOS & VELOS LAWYERS has been around, for over 40 years, delivering affordable legal

representation in many legal areas to their valued clients and community.

I, personally, would like to express my appreciation and gratitude to Mr. John Velos Master of Laws, who has recently provided me with excellent legal pro bono

advice in a situation where I needed to sought some valuable advice on how to proceed in a very complicated family case.

As I had heard from many people who had previously used the services of Mr. John Velos, I also experienced his expertise, integrity, excellence and kindness

whilst listening and understanding the complexity of my circumstances. He was intuitive, reading between the lines, and enlightening with an  amazing analysis of my case.

He never looked at the time but only focused on how to give me the answers, so as to be fulfilled at the end of the session and to be clear, in what path I should

chose for my own benefit.

I highly recommend his firm Velos & Velos Lawyers for he is the person who has this light filled with professionalism and kindness combined so as to advise and

assist his clients to pursue the best path for their concerns when choosing to be legally represented and advised.

May I stress with great confidence that when one feels the need to get legal advice, one should consider to meet with Mr. John Velos who is always giving his time

and professional expertise generously.

Kind Regards

Emily K.

My son engaged John Velos Lawyers last December 2017.

He had been charged by the Victorian Police with some very serious allegations which I believe affected him to the point where he was unable to process the consequences to be able to make good choices or decisions. Except of course, for finding Velos & Velos Lawyers … how my son managed this is a miracle in itself!

It has been an extremely difficult time for our son and I cannot stress how much I have appreciated John’s years of professional wisdom and counsel. I reside in Perth which added to the despair and distress.

During these highly emotional times in your life you must be protected by a “legal eagle” who has empathy, compassion, understanding and great intellect. John has all these virtues and many more … he has great insight and the ability to see the whole picture. John offered direction and guidance which transcended an untenable situation.

John was kind and patient with our son without judgment or criticism. I felt he treated Antony as if he was a member of his own family. Antony is only 26 years old – with his whole future ahead of him.

The outcome of the case was a good outcome.

My humble wish is for my son to visit Melbourne in the near future and share with John how much his kindness helped carry him during this terrible storm in his life.

I am sincerely grateful and wish to thank John and his team at Velos & Velos who treated us with the utmost respect and dignity.

I highly recommend Velos & Velos Lawyers and their competent, professional legal services.

Criminal/Family Law

Before my first Conference with Mr John Velos, Master of Laws at Velos & Velos Lawyers I was in complete despair, facing 15 years in jail.

From Mr John Velos I received immediate support and prompt advice. This was a great relief as a burden had been lifted off my shoulders and I got peace of mind.

With thoroughness and attention to detail Mr John Velos organised reports and references on my behalf.

He kept me informed during the whole Court process, offering words of encouragement.

He appointed an experienced barrister, and I received a Community Corrections Order, without conviction, an outstanding outcome seeing it was my second offence.

These were life changing results.

With over 40 years’ experience Mr John Velos offered wisdom, loyalty, respect, understanding and compassion. I consider him a friend and an extension of my family, as does my family.

I highly recommend Mr John Velos of Velos & Velos Lawyers. He saved my life.

It was an exceptional experience, and all the staff were highly professional. Simply professional, excellent and outstanding.

Their legal services are simply outstanding
