General Testimonials and Mix of Family Law Issues

“Thanks so much, yes amazing service which exceeded expectations. I will certainly recommend you highly. A big relief to have this matter resolved so quickly.” Best HB

I sincerely would like to thank Debra for her absolute professionalism and expertise in my case. It was very difficult and very emotional to be in that family law/property situation.    Debra and her staff were very kind, compassionate and professional, often assisting, providing advice and helping draft documents at short notice.
I would recommend the firm and would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone in need of any legal assistance.
On a personal note, I would like to say a huge thank you to Debra for spending the long hours on my situation.”

“Thank you, your firm and your wonderful staff for all the work done on my behalf and in advising and assisting me during the last 4 years.  This period has been personally quite difficult at times but the impact upon me of the various events and developments has been very much moderated by the counsel I’ve received, from Angela Li especially. I could not really have achieved a better outcome and this is largely down to Angela’s outstanding ability, effort and professionalism.  I cannot speak highly enough of this.  Your other staff have also been unfailingly helpful and adept. Thank you very much and I will strongly recommend your firm whenever the opportunity arises”. RK
