Dealing with a family law matter

I instructed Melanie to help me resolve a long standing and protracted family matter during 2020.

After briefing Melanie she led the process on my behalf, providing much needed legal and technical advice and ongoing execution. She also deployed something else of value. Melanie analysed the positions of those involved and used her experience and sound judgement to influence the outcome in a satisfactory way.

She maintained a 'big picture' view throughout, which meant no party was put under unnecessary duress to achieve the result.

Melanie is pragmatic, professional and she respected my priorities from beginning to end.

Absolutely superb divorce lawyer

Going through divorce is unsettling and daunting and finding a divorce lawyer who understands what is important to you, explains the process and the likely outcome in a clear and understandable way is essential. You want an experienced lawyer who knows his/her stuff and will fight your corner when needed to but at the same time is sensible and pragmatic and will not aggravate an already fraught situation or rack up fees unnecessarily.

Melanie is that and more. She exceeded my expectations at every step of the way. In a calm and clear way, she provided excellent advice throughout. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. She was very approachable and responsive and really prioritised what was important for me. I was extremely impressed with her. I am so pleased that I instructed Melanie, who was very hands on the whole time, rather than a partner at a big City firm who would’ve charged double/triple and probably delegated matter to a junior associate anyway.

I was very pleased with the outcome that Melanie and her team secured for me. I simply cannot praise her highly enough. 5 stars isn’t enough!

second to none

Melanie's service is second to none. Her prompt 'no nonsense' responses to questions are a refreshing change in a profession full of ifs and maybes. Her fees are fair based on the time needed to deal with a matter, but her advice is invaluable when considering which way to deal with a situation.

Would I recommend her? I would and I have several times and each time the person recommended has rang to thank me and has been equally glowing about the service they have received. 5 star plus from me.
