In 1993 Tex Perkins wrote: “Better get a lawyer son, better get a real good one!”. Everyone knows the best time to make friends with a lawyer is long before you need one. I was fortunate to meet Jonathan Mamaril, Principal and Director of NB Lawyers, long before either I or any of my NFP clients needed one. During the last two years, Jonathan and his expert team have assisted my clients with corporate restructures, a volunteer fraud matter, IR advice and a property settlement for myself.
NB Lawyers: pro-active, professional and proficient with a breadth and depth of experience you can depend on.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to co- facilitate a workshop luncheon with Jonathan to a select group of clients on proactive employee engagement in the workplace. As the founder of a small HR consultancy, my presentation focused on the proactive HR strategies of employee engagement, whilst Jonathan balanced my context with the legal implications of disengagement. We had a mixed bag of clients in the room from a vast array of industries, and Jonathan was easily able to tailor his communication to all levels of experience, background and legal understanding with such ease.
What struck me most about Jonathan’s presentation skills was his personal interaction with each and every person in the room. He made a huge effort to direct questions, content and examples to each business owner in order to give them the best opportunity to share their own experiences with the group and take some learnings from the session which were relevant to their own business. I perceived Jonathan as a very natural, fluent public speaker with a strong enthusiasm for the work he does and the clients he assists. His personable nature and authentic approach to communication reinforced Jonathan as an exemplary presenter and I would be humbled to work with him in future.
– Bonnie Jones, Happy Humans

Driven to find the best outcome for everyone she works with, Michelle always has something of value and interest to say.
