Myself, my brothers and my mum would like to thank the team at Coleman Greig Lawyers, in particular Jacob Smith, Madison Kelly, Karina Ralston and Malcolm Gittoes-Caesar. The family law matter was mostly handled by Jacob and he was truly determined to obtain a favourable result for my mother. I feel like he really took the time to understand us and he was on our side the entire way. It was great to have his support and honesty. He dedicated himself to the case with confidence and optimism. We were all thrilled with the outcome as it was even better than what we could have hoped for.
