Get a costs agreement first because I was charged $1000 for what I thought was an introductory chat with a family lawyer. When I received the invoice I just ignored it and they never chased it up until I engaged them to do the conveyancing for a property sale almost a year later. I refused to pay it as I never agreed to it but they went ahead and deducted it from the proceeds of my property settlement. Shifty and galling behaviour that would not be acceptable in any other profession.
Kenny Spring helped me to formalize my parenting and property arrangements after separation. Lauren kept me informed of what was happening all the way through the process, which was one less thing for me to worry about. Highly recommend.
