Madison looked after me when my marriage broke down and I needed legal assistance. She is extremely knowledgeable with family law and often pre-empted what could occur so that we were always one step ahead. In such an emotional time, she was always considerate and kind, yet confident and professional. In a nutshell - she was brilliant!! I recommend Madison Kelly to anyone seeking legal advice.

It was a long and complicated case, but Madison never wavered in her dedication to her work, support and patience to achieve the best outcome for me and my family. I would highly recommend Madison to anybody needing family law expertise and someone who is truly invested in her clients.
The divorce journey is not one I ever planned to be on and I was totally unprepared for the emotional and daunting legal path that lay ahead of me. Madison and other staff from Coleman Greig were lifesavers for me. She approached each new legal consideration with a warm and compassionate attitude whilst still keeping me focused on the task at hand. No question was ever too silly to ask, and she was readily available on email or phone when I needed her guidance. I felt she treated me as a person and not just a client. The legal world can be scary for those of us who don't know it well, but Madison was always mindful of this and guided me through each step of the way. I am very grateful to her and the team at Coleman Greig.
