Please accept my sincere thanks for your professional handling of my recent family law matter. You provided a very focused, ethical and decisive service. I am happy with the Orders we achieved, they allow for children to have both parents in their lives with the least disruption to their school lives. It is a win for them! I am stronger person for having completed the process I believed in. Thank you for helping me achieve this.

To Ann and the wonderful team, Thanks to you all for the effort you all put in during my Family Law matter. It was comforting to me to have such a competent and professional team acting on my behalf. Thanks.

I have been extremely fortunate to have experienced professional and supportive lawyers handling my case. Its been a very emotional journey and I couldn’t have done it without the professional staff at FGD especially Kasey Fox.

“Thanks Sarah Keenan for everything you have achieved for me, especially, of course, today which was truly stunning given the catastrophes that filled my mind… You and … made a brilliant and powerful team. I am deeply impressed with … and wish to thank you for securing his services. Please let him know that I am forever grateful for his total professionalism and authoritative personal manner. A remarkable result. FGD is an extraordinarily talented company.”

The team, Frank, Millie etc were kind, gentle and humane. They treated me with respect and care the whole way through my family court case. I owe them so much. I feel like they are part of the family rather than my lawyers. Can’t say how much we appreciate everything you have done for us!
