We love our jobs and we think we are pretty marvellous at what we do. But don’t just take our word for it. Below is what  our clients have said about us  (anonymised and redacted)


Kerry ReadKerry attended Court with me for one morning to be represented and I have already found myself to have the utmost confidence in her. It wasn’t just the fact that the Judge decided in my favour on this hearing, it was also the way Kerry dealt with myself, listening to me about my situation and being so understanding“.


Fiona McLemanFrom the very first conversation with Fiona, we knew we had made the correct decision to engage/work with FM Family Law. Fiona gave honest and clear advice in a direct but caring and supportive manner…We would strongly recommend FM Family Law.”


Karen FoxWords will never be able to express how grateful I am for all of your support, advice, clear headedness and humour throughout the whole process, not to mention your negotiation skills at getting both the favourable outcome and the matter brought to a close. Thank you!


Laura Clay-HarrisWith many thanks again Laura, for your stunning support in what has been a tough couple of years. Always most appreciated.”


Kerry Read “Kerry is very professional and personable. Before I sought legal advice from Kerry I was incredibly anxious but with every meeting we have, I come away feeling confident and I have a lot of trust in her knowledge. She is very reassuring and very honest. Instructing her to represent me in court has taken away so much stress and anxiety, my only regret is not contacting Kerry sooner to represent me. I’m very grateful for all her hard work.”


Carla Morphett “My experience of FM Family Law was that they were a highly compassionate and professional firm. I worked with Carla, throughout Carla made sure I understood every step of each process. One important aspect of the process for me was that I felt listened to. This was an extremely difficult time for me and Carla really helped me through it.”


Laura Clay-Harris “Thank you so very much for all your help , and making my divorce a very painless experience. From our first meeting you put me totally at ease and you have continued to carry the work through brilliantly. I shall certainly recommend your company and be assured that other people will be as pleased as I am.”


Karen Fox “I would highly recommend Karen to anyone facing a difficult family situation. I really couldn’t think of anyone better I would want by my side in a difficult situation. FM Family Law are extremely lucky to have someone like Karen representing their company. Even the Admin staff (Kate Smith) in particular were very good to me. Overall an exceptional service from start to finish!”


Sue Bailey “The divorce process is such an emotional and mentally challenging process to go through but with your guidance and support it was as straight forward as it could be.

Thank you so much.”


Fiona McLeman “I so appreciated your expert, professional and personal approach. Your guidance was invaluable and helped me cope at home and in work. You do great work Fiona, please keep it up!”

I would highly recommend Laura.”


Sue Bailey “Thank you for your help and your kindness throughout an emotionally difficult process. I was initially apprehensive about mediation, but you made me feel really comfortable. It was really important to me that XX and I discussed our future plans in a constructive way so that we could decide what would be best for each of us, and for our children – I definitely feel that the mediation sessions that we have had with you were the best way to do that!  


Karen Fox “I genuinely can not thank you enough for today… you have literally been amazing! It’s lovely to be able to trust you have my back …. and I felt at ease knowing I have you”

Fiona McLeman ” I asked Fiona to help me achieve something seeming nearly impossible and to do this whilst supporting me to represent myself. Fiona gave me advice and I wrote correspondence for Fiona to check. I experienced us as a good team working this way. I am usually very good at managing my feelings and when I struggled to cope with feelings evoked by the process (anger, terror, hurt, disappointment and so on) Fiona helped me stay rational, focused and acting in my own best interests. The process of divorce was horrific and I really appreciated Fiona’s calmness, steadfastness and focus in helping me achieve my goals. Happily we did achieve my goals and in a very efficient way. Thank you.”


Sue Bailey “Thank you for all your time, guidance and support! It has been an extremely challenging 14 months and I am very grateful for the help you provided.”
