Craig Busfield

I moved from Sydney to Sunshine Coast in May 2014 and after using the same excellent solicitor for 25 years in Sydney I was concerned about finding a firm that would engender the same long term business relationship. Friends in Coolum suggested Robert Cartmill who has recently amalgamated with Greenhalph Pickard. I dealt with both Robert & Tayla Mojidi in the settlement of my property; they were both excellent and kept me well informed of progress. I would unhesitatingly recommend their & the company’s services to any future client.
