Giovanni Porta is extremely approachable and has always provided me with sound commercial advice. He has acted for me in respect of both business and personal matters and I have always been very satisfied with the service provided.

Recently, Porta Lawyers looked after a complex estate matter for me. Giovanni and Leanne offered excellent guidance and undertook all tasks promptly and efficiently.

I have no hesitation in recommending Porta Lawyers and look forward to a continued business relationship with them.

I engaged Porta Lawyers some years ago to handle my Late Husband’s estate; they guided me through, answering any questions and making the journey so much easier for me.

Since then I have sold the family home and repurchased a smaller property, they have looked at Contracts and assisted me every step of the way, offering the advice I needed. I could not recommend Giovanni, Leanne and Barbara more highly.

I have worked with Porta Lawyers for many years now and being a property investor/renovator, I have needed a good conveyancer to handle our many purchases and sales.

Sometimes, in order to make a contract more attractive to the seller, we have nominated quite, short settlement times. Fortunately, Barbara has been a true professional and she has always been more than helpful with the necessary searches and paperwork, and has always handled the more problematic contracts with total ease.

I would very happily recommend Barbara Anderson for your next conveyancing job.

Porta Lawyers were utterly professional and helpful with legal action in Italy. Dear Mr Fabrizio Fiorino, is sincerely a profound pleasure to deal with on both a personal and professional level. He faithfully kept us informed of all judicial proceedings and ensured there was no possible ambiguity in our limited knowledge of Italian law.

Mr Fiorino's comprehensive knowledge and firsthand experience with both Italian and Australian law is fundamental to the excellent services provided by Porta Lawyers. We felt protected and confident with Porta Lawyers managing our affairs, and thoroughly recommend their valuable services. Fabrizio is one of the best Lawyers we have encountered and an asset to Porta Lawyers.

We have dealt with Porta Lawyers over the past 5 years and it has been a refreshing change in that they get the job done timely, with minimal or no complication for a reasonable fee.

We have had conveyancing, wills, estate settlement and contract dispute work completed and we were pleased with the outcome and their friendly service on every case.

I have no hesitation in referring others to Porta Lawyers.

We used Porta to settle our property in December 2016 and were more than impressed with the service and work provided.  Throughout the entire process, Barbara went above and beyond to assist us and ensure our settlement was smooth and seamless.  We would use them again and again.  Highly recommend Porta Lawyers!

Mr Fabrizio Fiorino from Porta Lawyers provided a high-level quality of service while achieving the best possible outcomes administering a difficult estate over in Italy. Fabrizio kept us informed of progress and we felt confident that we were in the best possible hands. We highly recommend Fabrizio he is an asset to the company and a very polite, respectful and considerate professional.

I have worked with Giovanni, Warren, Barbara, Leanne and the rest of the wonderful team for a number of years both professionally and for my own personal needs, I cannot recommend the firm highly enough, professional, courteous, efficient and diligent, all with a smile! Thank you.

C Molan

Cannot recommend Warren enough. After calling 3 local legal firms and not being listened to or helped properly I had given up hope and was extremely distressed. I called Porta Lawyers and was made to feel like a priority from the get go by the receptionist. My call was put straight through to Warren who took the time to listen and understand my difficult situation before beginning immediate action. After being told “it’s not possible” and being turned away by police and other legal firms, Warren was able to work with myself and QLD police to get me the outcome we needed. As I have told Warren; to him this is his job, to me he has saved my life and lifted an enormous weight off my shoulders. Thank you so much.


We had a urgent requirement for some documents to be reviewed and advice provided. Giovanni went out of his way to help us with very short notice which was greatly appreciated. If anyone is looking for a lawyer I would not hesitate to recommend Porta Lawyers. Stop looking for a lawyer and do yourself a favor, get these guys involved. Thanks Giovanni!

I used Porta lawyers to help me deal with deceased estate matters and found them to be very helpful throughout the process. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

I dealt with Fabrizio of Porta Lawyers for documentation regarding an Italian citizenship application. He was very responsive and super professional. I highly recommend him and the firm.

Conveyance Department and Barbara in particular has been most diligent and trustworthy, she has sorted out several problems with clear and extensive advice. She and Giovanni have both been accessible and approachable giving us great reassurance through this process.

To Giovanni, I commend your team members Barbara and Leanne – Barbara who helped with the sale of Mum’s house and Leanne who is helping us with Mum’s estate. 

They are both efficient, capable, helpful, responsive and easy to deal with. 

Kirralei & Sam

Barbara, I know you are probably sick of seeing our names pop up in your emails!

But I just wanted to quickly write to say thank you very very much for all your help throughout this whole (conveyancing) experience.

We greatly appreciate all your hard work.

You are a legend 🙂

I just wanted to convey a big “Thanks” from our family for all the work Porta Lawyers have done for us.

Your company is so smooth and easy to get along with.  You leave no doubt through such great communication, accuracy and efficiency when estate matters can be a mind boggling affair when mixed with emotion of the situation.  Thank you. 

Warren J

Hello Leanne. I don’t think we ever thanked you and Porta Lawyers for your great service regarding mum’s estate and everything that went with it. We were always greeted with a warm bright smile in reception and you kept us in the loop and up to date at all the significant moments. Thank you for being so professional and personable.  It was greatly appreciated.  I will be in touch again in the near future to deal with making my own will and I have every confidence in your professional service. Kindest regards to you all from our family.

Hi Lily,

We appreciate your assistance throughout the Contract.

Thank you for your time and professionalism.

We are very happy with the way you and your firm represented Maria.



I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere appreciation and heartfelt gratitude to Bailey, the Barrister and Mediator for their exceptional professionalism and composure during the mediation process.  Your expertise and guidance were truly invaluable in assisting us.  Once again, I would like to thank you for your unwavering dedication and hard work.
