"Thank you so much for your hard work and your belief in a legal system that can work for the right reasons. I can clearly state that this would be a perfect moment of job satisfaction as you’ve helped reunite a child with his family."
"Thank you for providing me with a professional yet empathetic approach to gain the best outcome for me. Amelia was excellent in explaining the processes and in representing me in Court."
"Thank you once again for representing me words can’t express how grateful I am but thank you so much. Thank you again for protecting my beautiful family and from our deepest heart beautiful blessings."
"Thank you for being so caring and for all the support guiding me through such a difficult time."
"I just want to thank you both for all your hard work. I really appreciated all your effort and support. Now it is on to another stage of my life; a much more positive one."
"Very pleased with the way Amelia handled the situation, was always compassionate, understanding and helpful."
"Once again I must thank both you very much for all your effort in bringing about a successful outcome.."
"Once again thank you for everything that you've done, your experience and knowledge, coupled with great communication and interpersonal skills has made this as easy as humanly possible for me."
"Thank you so much to you and your team on all of your help. I appreciate everything. Wish you all the best."
" Thanks for your help over the last 12+ mths. I really appreciate the approach you take with family law. Many many thanks!"
"Please pass our thanks and gratitude to Kerry for all her assistance and guidance over the last few years. It has enabled the consent order process between two young people who became parents at 17 and who never lived together to be done in a positive and constructive manner. Who would have thought that the child would have such a positive co-parenting experience and to be able to choose which parent he lives with? Kerry’s wisdom and advice has been invaluable in allowing that to happen."
"Many thanks to you two too for all your help and assistance in guiding me through this difficult time. Your advice and professionalism were much appreciated."
"Wow what a day yesterday and thank you so much for all your effort. Still a bit overwhelmed from it all and coming to terms with it. I can't thank you enough for your massive contribution with it all and want you to know how much I greatly appreciate it all. Words really can't express my gratitude... thank you Bree!"
"you have been very helpful and provided me with sound advice, as well as guiding me through this difficult process when I was having significant personal difficulties, and I would like to thank you very sincerely for this. "
"I can't thankyou enough for your support. Thanks for helping me stay strong through a very difficult process. I am truly saddened that I can no longer retain your help with my matter as I know I couldn't have been in better hands."
"Thank you so much for all your organisation and support last Thursday. Your guidance has been invaluable to me. I am incredibly happy with the outcome thus far and so grateful to have you representing me."
"Thank you so much for all of your help in once again protecting my family and once again representing me. I am forever grateful for everything you have done for me."
"I am very grateful for your help with my matter. I send my sincerest thanks and wish you future success, good health and happiness."
"Dear Berni, Many thanks! As I said many times, from my heart, appreciate your work! Happy new Year!"
"I write to say my big thanks to you for the final hearing. It was such a hard experience, but I want to let you know that I am very happy for what has been achieved. I trust I have plenty of time to work out the little things that I was not really sure about."
"Dear Bernadette, Christmas is here again! Everyday seems to just fly by. But I’m grateful for every moment, especially since my kids are virtually always close…thanks to you."
"Thank you so much for your hard work and every effort you made for my legal matter. Thank you for always giving me advice that helps me to keep doing sensible thing. Especially thank you for giving me advice in a very patient and in timely manner."
"I would like to especially congratulate Anne-Louise Pham who dealt directly with me for most of the convoluted and drawn out dealings we had with my ex-wife’s sometimes aggressive & threatening representative.
Anne immediately put my mind at ease at her obvious knowledge of the law that she used to discount some of the other sides ridiculous claims and demands as soon as they made them.
She managed to obtain a better settlement for me from a tiny pot of assets, than I had anticipated, simply by educating the other side about the correct laws that applied and what could legally be claimed by either side. She gave me great confidence when she shot down the other sides legal team when she proved they weren’t nearly as knowledgeable of the law as she is. She used no trickery or threats, just a calm and fair settlement using the facts and the law.
Sure, she advised me that she could have got an even better outcome for me, but also wanting a good outcome for my ex I instructed her to settle and she was able to conclude a quicker settlement at least 30% better than I had previously been prepared to accept ... painlessly and amicably acceptable to both sides.
I would gladly recommend Anne to anyone seeking a similar settlement with their ex-partner."
"Bree has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She has been efficient, responsive, helpful and pleasant. She has taken care of everything and I'm so pleased that everything is now finalised and something I no longer need to think about. I could not have hoped for a better experience through something no one really wants to have to go through at all. She is a real asset to your team."
"Lovely to meet you and thank you for your wonderful work. As I said I think that you did a great job on the affidavit material and I appreciate your assistance."
"I simply wanted to say thank you for your prompt professional finalising of my matter."
"Thank you for preparing the matter so thoroughly for interim hearing, and the detailed observations you supplied."
"It's been a pleasure and a rewarding experience having you as my legal team. I've always felt I was in safe hands. Thank you very much."
"I thank my instructing solicitors for instruction me in this matter. In particular I would like to thank Ms Bree Staines for her hard work in and dedication to this matter."
"Thank you for your help, I must admit that I expected a significantly worse outcome at the point we first spoke. You have been a very calming influence despite my somewhat emotional temperament and I thank you for that. You have knowledge and logic way beyond your years which is extremely rare."
"Thank you for everything you have done for our family and all of the assistance you have provided us. Your hard work and long hours is much appreciated as you have helped secure us a future here in Melbourne. No words could describe how happy we are. Thank you!"
"I am happy now, thank you very much for your hard work,you have put on ,and I am happy with settlement. You have been fantastic."
"I would like to thank you for your support during this event, whilst I am happy to see the end I did value your professionalism and advice during the process."
"I just want to thank you both, for your help, in my case. Not having any idea in how to go about financial separation, and with many friends and work colleagues offering their thoughts of what to do, it was good to have your solid knowledge to help me through this difficult time.
From my first meeting with you in April last year, you both were able to guide me through the next 10 months, achieving what always wanted to keep, my sons, the dog, and the family home.
I am now much happier, and looking forward to my new stage in life.
It feels strange to say, but I hope I will never see you both (professionally), again."
"Michelle, I feel like I never got to say thank you for all your good work and support over the last two years. Apart from the legal advice, I always knew I had you behind me, so thanks. It was a horrible time for me (something I still don’t think I’m over) but your strength, humour, determination and advice were wonderful."
"Just over a year ago it was very hard to see an end to my court proceedings. However, the end finally came and you and your staff stood by me till the very end.
I'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your enormous efforts and kindness to me and my children. Your work has meant that we are now finally free from a very horrible situation. Thanks to you and your hard work, and of course that of Kate and all the other staff who were involved, my children have stability and I'm now able to provide a happy and secure future for them.
During my seven years through the court system I have dealt with many lawyers and barristers, most of whom were nothing short of vultures, unfortunately. You and your staff were always very professional despite some extreme circumstances and above all, always conducted matters with the utmost integrity.
I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me, but please know that you have given a family that had almost no hope, the best hope for a new life and a great future for two precious kids."
"After being bossed and bullied for over 30 years my confidence was all but non-existent plus I had no access to financial support as my husband slowly gambled away our money. Finding Ms Kerry White at Armstrong Legal was a miracle. She did a bit of hand-holding, encouraged me to stand up for myself, taught me the meaning of pro-activity and gave me back my self-respect. I cannot recommend her and her team highly enough."
"Just wanted to thank you again for yesterday. I am very happy with how everything turned out. Thank you for staying to talk to my parents, I knew it had been a long day but I really appreciated that you were able to give them some answers."
"I'd like to thank Kate for taking the time to meet with me and providing me with some valuable information. I found your firm to be very professional and accommodating and I would not hesitate recommending it to anyone or make use of your service myself if needed in the future."
"I could not have got the result I did without Michelle. During one call, she could hear that I was quite upset and she just said 'talk to me, what's going on?' Her real interest in what was best and her support helped me resolve my issues in mediation. I have already recommended her to my partner and am sure she will get us a good result. Thank you."
"Thank you for your help and support. I will recommend your services to my friends and a personal thank you to Michelle."
"I was referred to Michelle after many difficulties dealing with other family lawyers and getting nowhere. She instantly took control, listened carefully and then recommended the approach she thought would best meet my needs and budget. She was always quick to respond to my questions and concerns and the matter was resolved quickly and professionally. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Michelle to anyone."
"You are amazing. Thank you for you and your firms kindness."
"I cant thankyou enough for guiding us through this. I know this is part of your job, but your input is making an enormous difference to me."
"I appreciate Kate's honesty and clear explanation with regards to the possible outcomes of my case. I was extremely satisfied with the service."
"I also wanted to thank you again for your help & above all support over the past 3-4 months. It has been such a difficult time but your calm & professional approach has definitely saved my sanity many times over. So for this I am extemely grateful."
"I had worked all my life to build up the business and was just starting to see the benefits. My wife was bitter about the separation and did not want to have the business, she just didn't want me to have it. I couldn't start again. Thanks to Peter I didn't have to."
Taking the next step and contacting a family lawyer can be scary. Our lawyers will make you feel comfortable so you can talk about your situation. But first, ask yourself, Do I really need a lawyer?
