“Dear Kasey, Victoria, Lyndal & the staff at FGD, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything you have done for me and my children in the past few years…There were times I was in a very low state of mind and it was your kindness and support that gave me hope…I wish there were more people like you around, cause the world would be a much better place to live!”

Courtney & Kathryn, Thank you so much for yesterday’s outcome…Both your professional & strategic approach has achieved & will pave the way forward.”
“Thank you again for your assistance and understanding. I have already recommended your services and I will not hesitate to recommend you in the future.”
“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.”
“I feel I have some control back in my life due to understanding my rights and the process.”
“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.”
“I would like to thank you and your team for the advice and assistance given to me with the property settlement. It may have been more protracted than we expected, but I value the care that was taken to ensure a fair and dignified solution. In the end, the process was at least equally important to the result and I fear that this would only have been achieved with the collaborative approach.”
“Dear Jessica, I wanted to thank you so very much for all the kindness and thoughtfulness you showed me before, at and after the Listing yesterday. I appreciate it so much more than words can express…Again, your sensitivity, advice, support and input were much appreciated and valued.”
“This matter was daunting and stressful for the whole family but we very quickly developed great confidence in the expertise, skill, advice and support offered by Mr Bak…”
“Dear Kasey. I just wanted to thank you for your help with this and very glad and relieved the end result was what I was hoping for. Thank you again.”
“Hi Frank. A big thank you for your care and attention yesterday – it was such a relief. As I drove home yesterday the only word to describe how I felt was surreal!”

“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!”

“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.”
“Thank you so very much for your kindness and generosity… it has been a rollercoaster of a ride, and even though none of it surprised me, it was a different journey as a participant rather than a bystander. I always felt confident that you would guide us safely to the end of the ride and the outcome has been a very good one.”
“I found I gained more ownership of the final outcome which, for all intents and purposes, was a good end result for both parties.
“I recently called and spoke to Elizabeth. She was brilliant to deal with and totally put my mind at ease.”
“When I unfortunately went through a very bitter divorce a few years ago I found you to be very professional and compassionate and you gave me the confidence and surety to keep fighting what seemed to be “an uphill battle”. You were very thorough in your preparation and detail and I really believe you have what it takes to rise to the top in your field.”
“Great service.”
Jess was brilliant and in that hour she covered everything I needed her to with respect to my separation and impending divorce from my husband. I now have a clear direction forward and I feel much happier and more confident that I won’t wind up being disadvantaged in this process. Thank you again for everything.”
“Thank you for helping to keep my financial + mental health together”
“Thank you so much Adam, OMG…. I really don’t know what to say. The last week has been so peaceful. The kids and I are getting back into a more normal routine and I have been inspired to get back into the garden again, now that I know I can keep my house. The thing that has been the most important to me right through this whole exercise has been your realistic portrayal of the potential outcomes. At times this was not what I wanted to hear but in the end if you have realistic expectations there is much less chance of disappointment.”
“FGD provided advice, supported with speedy action where necessary. They also engendered confidence and reassured me in often extremely stressful times.”
“Dear Kasey. It’s been a really intense month and I am so impressed with the way you took over my case at such short notice and represented me so brilliantly to reach a settlement.”
“I just wanted to say thanks again for not giving up on us. I really am so glad that you didn’t just throw your hands up in the air and walk away from it all (most certainly a huge temptation)… I know it’s your job, but that you saw it through, regardless of the outcome and many difficulties, says a lot about you. Thanks for your patience.”
“Many thanks for everything, the outcome for me was more than I’d hoped for!”
“Thanks Sarah 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.”

“Thanks so much Kasey. I cannot thank you enough for everything. I can see now that the way things turned out was definitely the best way possible, with the least hurt for all… Thank you so so much, on behalf of our little family, for everything you have done. I’m so grateful. The kids are doing great and I think as things settle will only continue to thrive.”

“You truly have an amazing firm, one in which I have recommended people to go to. Something I’ll continue to do.”

Kathryn and Mary, Thank you for everything. I am so happy this is now finished. I couldn’t have done this without all of your professional advice and recommendations. You were all so very courteous and understanding of my situation I couldn’t have been recommended to a better firm or team of people. This is such a massive relief as this part of my life can now be closed. I thank you all deeply from the bottom of my heart.”

“Thanks Tash and Lyndal and anyone else who assisted in my case. I am more than happy with the outcome and would willingly recommend you to any of my friends who may find themselves in equally unfortunate circumstances although I hope to never need your services again.”
Adam and all the team at FGD were amazing. Was so happy to have you all representing me.
“Your warmth, kindness and professionalism has impressed me from the very first moment that we met…. Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“Dear Kasey, I want to express my sincere thanks to you for all your help, support and advice with my case. I could never have done it without you! All your efforts made it possible for me to get back on my feet & get on with my life. I am truly blessed to have had you to turn to in what was such a difficult situation…”
Sam, I want to say thank you so much for all of your help. Your expertise, hard work and support has been a godsend. My Court date had been haunting me for months. You saved my sanity…I can’t thank you enough.”
“Not knowing the law too well I was treated with respect and in a friendly way. My case was set up and ready to proceed on time by the solicitor. It was above and beyond if necessary.”
“Hi Jess, I just anted to say thank you again for taking the time to give me your advice in preparation for yesterday’s hearing… I could only have dreamed of an outcome like this and I haven’t stopped smiling since yesterday afternoon. Words cannot express the sense of fulfilment I have after having my concerns heard – its priceless…Your advice and insights were invaluable and gave me the encouragement I needed to represent myself. This experience has changed my life and my children’s lives, and for the part you played in it, I want to sincerely say thank you.”
“I am incredibly pleased with how I have been taken care of greatly supported and listened to throughout my case. I always felt secure and that I was in trustworthy responsible and dedicated hands. Thank you.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to extend my gratitude with my recent Collaborative Law process involving my ex wife and myself. Not being familiar with this process previously I was not sure how it worked outside normal Family Law processes. It came as a complete surprise to me that both my ex wife and I could have so much more control of the settlement process which is recognised by the Family Court… I found I gained more ownership of the final outcome which, for all intents and purposes, was a good end result for both parties…the end result was signed off by both parties and was formulated through agreement by my ex wife and myself and not by solicitors arguing on our behalf in a normal courtroom situation.”
“I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for taking me and my case on board and representing me in a very long drawn out settlement. Your support, empathy and guidance has been exceptional and I cannot thank you enough…”

I wanted to grab this opportunity to write and express my thanks for what you, Juliette and the team at FGD have done for me to this point.

I have particularly appreciated your patience in helping me understand various options and your ability to listen and take in every detail. Your advice has been sound and measured, always delivered in a thoroughly professional manner. I have never felt pressured, only encouraged, and you have displayed an interest which projects a genuine concern. But importantly, you have done an excellent job in remaining focused on moving forward to realistic and better outcomes…

I hope this letter serves to convey my deepest gratitude to you and the team at FGD.
