CLIENT: Client A
TESTIMONIAL: I was recommended to Victoria by a trusted friend in the legal profession. Victoria’s professional but friendly and pragmatic approach was very comforting and the whole team enabled me to achieve the best outcome. Divorce is undoubtedly one of life’s most stressful events. It is essential to have the best team in your corner throughout the entire process and I would thoroughly recommend Victoria and her team to family and friends. The advice received was professional and pragmatic born out of many years of experience and an innate understanding of the stressful dynamics of family matters and divorce. For such a busy practice the team always had time for me and made me feel that ‘I was important’ to them.


CLIENT: Client B
TESTIMONIAL: I was extremely grateful for the excellent service I received throughout my case which was protracted and complex at every turn. Victoria and Carly were always available with sound, practical advice. The divorce process can be quite overwhelming at times, but Victoria and Carly took time to explain all aspects of my case with me in plain English and helped me to navigate the options and remedies available. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Myersons to friends or family in the future.


CLIENT: Client C
TESTIMONIAL: Without the help and guidance Carly has given me, my sons would not be in my full time care. Above everything, the main focus was the safety of the boys. I will always be eternally grateful for the help Carly has given me through some very difficult times. Carly always listened to my point of view and steered me in the right direction. She has a way of cutting through the irrelevant information whilst focussing on the real matters at hand. Without her calm manner, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am extremely satisfied with the service provided and would definitely recommend Myersons.


CLIENT: Client D
TESTIMONIAL: I was more than satisfied with the service provided. Celanne was extremely thorough and left no stone unturned. She thought of every angle in spite of having to deal with totally uncharted waters in my case. I would have no hesitation in recommending Celanne to family and friends and have already done so. Celanne has been communicative at all times and has given us the feeling of being in control. She always gave us options to each problem and left it with us to which direction we wanted to pursue
