Recognition and membership

Excellent service received

Cate and Toni handled my divorce. While a divorce can be anything but pleasant, Cate and Toni made the process simple and straightforward with clear advice throughout. Their advice has been greatly appreciated and I would happily recommend their services to friends and family. Their approach is professional yet friendly, very knowledgeable yet you don’t get overwhelmed by detail and technicalities.

Simply outstanding

Rarely in the legal sector have I encountered such a team of highly dedicated, knowledgeful, proactive and responsive professionals. Led by Cate Sylvester and with Toni gladstone, their legal mastery in Family Law enabled them to deliver a verdict in my favour with the utmost efficiency and integrity, leading to lower costs than otherwise would be the case. I simply cannot understate my strongest recommendation to others in need of world class legal support. Finally, I would also like to extend the same sentiment to Georgia Marchant (Warners Conveyancing), who also delivered with the utmost professionalism and efficiency. Again, I would recommend Georgia in the highest possible regard.
