Perth Family Lawyers dealt with my case in a professional, empathetic manner. Samantha Long acted for me and gave clear advice that was in the best interests of my son. It was not always what I wanted to hear, but she was clear and concise in what the court would deem acceptable. She has a fantastic knowledge of the law and I felt safe and secure through the whole process. Thank you Perth Family Lawyers.
Perth Family Lawyers have helped me through a very stressful period in my life. Each time I thought there was no end in sight, they have managed to coach me through to making the right decision, to not give in/up and to push back against unreasonable demands. Melissa Raftis and everyone else I dealt with have endured my endless questions, double checking; and at the opposite end, pointed out things I had completely overlooked. It's been quite a journey, couldn't have done it without them.

I can not speak highly enough about Melissa Raftis and the other lawyers and staff. Perth Family Lawyers came highly recommended to me by another person on an online mums group, and I am grateful that person took the time to explain their appreciation and confidence in the team. Now if anyone is looking for advice or representation for family/property/child matters, I always recommended Melissa and team. During a period where stress was high, Melissa providing a sound guiding light to help me through and ultimately got me a highly satisfactory resolution. I know my matters would not be resolved without the help of Perth Family Lawyers. I have complete confidence in Melissa and the team, to provide outstanding professional representation to all their clients, with a compassionate understanding of the social and emotional aspects of family law, whilst being experts at navigating the legal complexities of the same.

Hi Ladies, Thank you all so much again for all of your help over the past 12 months. A special thank you to Nicola for always being there and fighting for me every step of the way, there is no way I could have gone through this by myself. As I said, if anyone I know needs the help of a family lawyer you will be the firm I send them to. Thank you all again.

A big thank you to Perth Family Lawyers and in particular to Samantha Long. My dealings with Samantha and the Firm in general over a six month period were conducted in an efficient and professional manner and although my experience is somewhat limited in such matters I found them to be absolutely outstanding. Overall I’d most certainly recommend Perth Family Lawyers!

I just wanted to say thank you again Nicola for all your hard work over the past few months. I have felt that I have been in the best hands possible with Perth Family Lawyers. Whilst things have been somewhat amicable between myself and my ex, I know I wouldn't have been able to finalise everything without your assistance. I would thoroughly recommend you in the future if anyone asks. Thanks again and all the best.

A great big thank you to Perth Family Lawyers and Nicola for helping me through what has been a very difficult year. I would glady recommend you to anyone else going through a separation. It has not been easy, and whilst I know your lawyer can't take away all of the stress that comes with separation, I really felt like Nicola was looking out for my best interests. I can now move on and concentrate on the most important people in my children. Thanks again, not sure I could have got through it without you! 🙂

Thank you Melissa and Nicola for all the hard work you have done for me over the past year or so. I am so pleased that you have started your own firm.

A big thank you to Nicholas Cooper and Ann Maude at Perth Family Lawyers . Nicholas Cooper was excellent at calming my nerves and being straight down the line. Any questions i had, he answered with no problems and explained everything in away i would understand. He showed great experience, confidence and knowledge regarding VRO’s. Ann Maude was also amazing with keeping me informed with every step and her way to explain and calm me in situaton was outstanding. Since my case was a bit new and different. Because I’m a Defence Member, Ann has family in the Defence force for the past 20 plus years and she had a great understanding and knowledge of the Defence rules and regulations. Luckily my case got solved prior going to hearing or court, but Nicholas and Ann made me feel confident in their abilities, prep work and knowledge and I felt and knew I was in safe hands. Thank You Nicholas and Ann for your time and your amazing work.

Finding Melissa Raftis was a miracle to me, having used her services to win my daughter back into my life I found Melissa to be very understanding, professional & focused on what needed to be done to achieve the results I wanted. She assisted & guided me through all the right steps required, through a very rough time. I would honestly recommend her services to anyone who is unfortunate to experience such painful experiences. I would like to thank Melissa for all she has helped me with & also would like to thank Sarah Taylor who helped keep me up to date with all the activities in my case. I found her very professional and always was there when I needed updates on my case.
