CLIENT: Client A
TESTIMONIAL:I engaged Myersons to deal with my divorce following a recommendation from a friend and having done some research. From my first meeting with Victoria, I felt at ease and confident that she was going to do her best for me. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable, whilst also being sensitive and client-focused during an extremely difficult time. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Myersons to friends and family in the future. I hadn’t ever envisioned being in my situation after a long marriage, however the practical advice and support I received from Victoria and the team at Myersons have made the process so much easier. Most importantly, I am pleased with the outcome and positive about my future.

CLIENT: Client B
TESTIMONIAL: At what was a stressful time, Victoria consistently provided clear advice in a very calm and considered manner and was able to explain the realities of the law in detail. I felt like part of the team discussing the best options rather than simply a client, and I always left meetings firstly a bit calmer, but also with a clear understanding of the next steps. I was very glad that Victoria was on my side, and, on Family Law matters, I have no hesitation in recommending the Myersons Team.
