After spending a year at another law firm who seemed entirely motivated by driving up fees without any focus on settlement I came to Samantha Long at Perth Family Lawyers, which ended up being the best decision I could have made. It goes without saying that divorce is one of the most stressful experiences but Sam was simply fantastic – book smart about the law, but focused completely on outcomes without being unnecessarily litigious or emotive. I noticed a dramatic difference in fees alone almost immediately, but more importantly I felt like Sam “had my back” at all times. Unfortunately, while my matter did end up in court Sam could not have been more prepared. I got the best possible outcome and more importantly maintained my dignity throughout in what is often a very undignified process. Thanks Sam, you have my highest recommendation.
