Melissa is the best!

I would highly recommend Melissa Hine of Blackwood Family Lawyers. It was my first interaction with a family lawyer case and she made the process very easy by explaining things expertly, concisely and candidly. Melissa was diligent in checking in with me and providing timely updates as well as frequently correcting the other parties typos and errors in information. While I hope I won't need to be involved in a similar case in future, I know exactly who to call if I do!

Excellent Family Lawyer

Melissa was very efficient, responsive and professional in the way she handled my property settlement. She achieved a great outcome by consent Orders and Financial Agreement following Mediation, and will shortly be supporting with my divorce application. She was very attentive to detail and made a stressful situation and process much easier to work through. I would highly recommend Melissa and Blackwood Family Lawyers to anyone in need of family law advice / services.

Family lawyers

I had a very positive experience with Bryn, Kelly and Sarah. They provided great advice and support; being extremely professional, compassionate and patient throughout. They were always available to answer any questions and used simple clear and prompt communication which made for a smooth and efficient process. This ultimately made a difficult time much easier to navigate.
I cannot thank them enough for their help.

Blackwoods deliver an excellent outcome

After Kate Wild’s maternity leave I was put in the, what I was to find, the most capable hands of Mary Young and the ever efficient Sarah Elkins.
My matter continued on its course in the highly professional and effective manner Kate had bought me used to and is close to being at a very satisfying conclusion.
I am now an advocate for Blackwoods and have been happy to recommend them a number of times. Show reply

Excellent service - professional and highly experienced

Blackwood Family Law acted on my behalf following the breakdown of my marriage - in short, they were excellent.

Mary Young and Sarah Elkins were the amazing lawyers working with me to resolve the matter. At all times they were professional, sensitive and highly knowledgable on the details and nuance of family law. Their calm and measured approach ensured that my matter was resolved in a positive manner. At all times, my options were clearly explained and the way ahead agreed and implemented. Mine was a quite a complex matter and it was handled expertly and without flaw.

I can not recommend Blackwoods highly enough - they are definitely the team you want on your side. Show reply

Helped me secure a good settlement outcome as efficiently as possible, while taking care to safeguard my best interests

I employed the services of Cassandra Salvagio of Blackwoods to help me negotiate and resolve my separation and property settlement. Cassandra, and Blackwoods generally, were good communicators, skilled negotiators, knowledgable in law, and always highly professional. Over the course of the negotiations it became clear to me I had the superior team in my corner. Cassandra helped me to secure a good settlement outcome in difficult circumstances, as efficiently as possible, and took care to safeguard my best interests. Show reply
