I chose to contact “** law firm” after dealing with your colleague, Micaela Chomley during my property settlement with my ex-wife. I cannot speak highly enough of Micaela’s efforts, I’m sure you already realize what an asset she is to your company.
MF – Sunshine Coast
I would like to thank Micaela for her excellent work, kindness and understanding at a time when things were very stressful and anxious with my separation and property settlement.
I felt a sympathetic ear which is was what I needed.
I am happy that this situation was solved in a relatively quick period of time.
I would recommend Micaela to friends and family if legal services were required by them
