Both Karen and Michaela have helped me through a difficult time. Not only are they professional and structured in their approach but have a great respect and understanding to me and my family in terms of emotional and practical support.
There were dark times where I wanted to just give up but Karen was the calm, reassuring voice and kept me on the right track. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone in a similar situation as my own to listen, help and guide them through the whole start to finish process.
Michaela has the ideal personality that put me at ease throughout the mediation process. Her expertise as a practising family lawyer gave me confidence throughout mediation. Mediation costs with Michaela were excellent value for money for helping to resolve my situation.
I found the knowledge, experience and compassion of my solicitor , Janie Law, and the staff at Family Law Matters extremely helpful to me during a difficult and trying time.
After a stressful and emotional separation, I felt very vulnerable. Jane Blackwood was recommended to me by a friend. Jane was very warm and approachable and made me feel instantly at ease and more hopeful. Her confident knowledge made me feel that I was always in very good hands. Jane is empathetic, honest and efficient. I would not hesitate in recommending Jane in the slightest.
The friendliness of the office support staff was appreciated and the comfortable environment of the rooms helped to put me at ease.
