I am incredibly grateful for Anna’s expertise in assisting with navigating a gruelling and difficult separation from my ex-husband. Anna demonstrated such a level-headed, thorough and practical approach at the times when dealing with such a high conflict ex-husband became almost too much. Importantly, Anna showed me practical methods to respond with a measured, informed and calm approach to protect my wellbeing and that of my children.
I discovered that going through a separation/divorce is very much a case of ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’ and in many cases Anna proved to fill the ‘gap’ of information, consideration and empathy that sometimes my solicitor did not provide.
Anna always informed me with compassion and understanding about processes and pitfalls of the legal system. Importantly, always central to her approach was mine and my children’s wellbeing. Anna’s unique combination of understanding human behaviour, negotiation and Family Law has in practical terms saved legal costs, therapy costs and at times my sanity.
Having never experienced a divorce before I was blindsided by how little I knew of the relevant law, and process. My first meeting with Jacqueline was very extensive and I left feeling much better (albeit emotionally drained!) about the road ahead.
In addition to Jacqueline’s knowledge of the process, her empathetic nature and care for her clients was very apparent, and extremely comforting during this turbulent time.
I have no hesitation in recommending Jacqueline to anyone in need of a divorce expert who also displays compassion and empathy.
I was fortunate to meet Anna half way through family law (parenting) proceedings. This was just after I had an FDRS conference. I was at a very low point. Anna understood my situation and how I was feeling. She explained legal process in a truthful and frank manner, better than any lawyers I had dealt with. I was so grateful to have her support and guidance from here on.
Anna helped with the day to day problems with my ex, my child’s behaviours, handling professionals and the legal response. She equipped me with the skills and knowledge to build my confidence and give me a sense of hope and control. I learnt that I had the ability to be assertive. Anna’s method is purposeful and she is very strategic. Anna is highly professional and ethical in her work. I couldn’t have reached the outcome I obtained without her.

Jacqui prepared me for the battle ahead by calling me, "Joan of Arc." She reminded me continuously, as I faced each new confrontation (with integrity) I need to be "Teflon" — non-stick. The situation turned around because of the good people around me, who turned it around. They kept me
