Every situation is different and very few are easy. Our relationships team are genuine experts in all manner of family law and relationship law advice.
I would like to thank the team at Cavell Leitch for the amazing job they did for me in very difficult and emotional times. They were very thoughtful and considerate when dealing with such sensitive issues through my separation and earthquake settlement. Also they went through a complete and accurate process being fully open and informative at all times, with a satisfying conclusion at a reasonable price. Thanks again, I will certainly use you in the future."
Some of our recent projects have included:
Obtaining an urgent Protection Order for a client who was being threatened by her partner
Reaching an amicable relationship property settlement and custody arrangement (where the initial breakup had been hostile) without the need for Court intervention.
Successful claim against an estate where one child had been left out of a will.
