We have recently had the pleasure of having David Newhouse act for us in a compulsory acquisition involving our lease. We cannot thank David enough or speak highly enough of him, for the courtious, personal and professional manner, in which he steered us thorough a very stressful and emotional period. He is client focused, knowledgeable, caring and thoughtful. His experienced in these matters was much appreciated and greatly assisted in the negotiation process. David was always there for us and very approachable throughout the process and we thank him for this. We have absolutely no hesitation in recomending David and his team to whom we extend our grateful appreciation.

We had a conveyancing matter that needed to be attended to with some urgency. David went above and beyond the call of duty by answering emails and calls after hours to make sure we settled on time. He was warm and friendly throughout the process which was such a bonus.

Recently David Newhouse represented us in a Government Acquisitions takeover for an office we owned in the Sydney CBD. David's expertise in the field of Government Acquisitions is reflected in his ability to take on and manage a difficult process from beginning to end. He is passionate in what he does. I actually thought at one stage the deal had been done but David managed to squeeze that little extra out of the deal. Thank you David

David and his team were outstanding. I’ve not seen a more dedicated , client focus lawyer in my 30 years of needing legal services on real estate matters. Our situation was challenging as our office building was compulsory acquired and, as a tenant , lengthy and complex negotiations were required with a government entity. David went above and beyond ( without additional fees) to make sure we received a fair outcome. I could not recommend David more highly.

I am writing this review to express the professionalism and incredible outcome on my land acquisition claim. David Newhouse in particular at Newhouse & Arnold Solicitors has achieved an outstanding result on my compulsory acquisition claim and made the whole process reassuring and easier than expected. From the moment I met David I knew I was in good hands and I am so appreciative for all the help and guidance he has given me throughout the process. If anyone is considering a solicitor I highly recommend David and his team. He has exceeded all my expectations and the results were life changing for me. Thank you

David and his team were absolutely incredible in our resumption case and instrumental in receiving a favourable outcome. I’m not sure what I would have done without David. He handled everything so brilliantly and it was so comforting to know we had someone like him on our side. Katie was such an amazing asset in the sale and purchase of our new home and we are so grateful to have had her. Thank you to everyone at Newhouse and Arnold for looking after us, your exceptional expertise and professionalism was second to none! They come very highly recommend from my husband and I!
