“Debbie Clinch I found to be very professional, patient and thorough. Her experience, healthy working relationships with other lawyers (in the Family Court setting) and experience in solving matters out of court by negotiation was invaluable. It is my perception that Debbie is known by Magistrates to be sensible, reasonable and practical. Debbie is good at telling you what you need to know and do in matters of heightened stress and giving sensible and practical advise. Debbie also made herself available outside of normal business hours. I would recommend people needing Family Law advise seek the help of Debbie Clinch without hesitation.”

“Beverley Sorrell at Clairs Keeley was an absolute godsend. I would highly recommend her to anyone requiring assistance with property settlements and disputes and drafting wills. She was incredibly professional and efficient, provided great advice and made sure my interests were looked after. I would not hesitate to engage her again in the future.”
– Sharmane Errey
“I have been very fortunate to have had the guidance and support of Debbie Clinch from this law firm after my separation. I recommend Debbie highly. With her never ending assistance, I have been able to arrive at an agreement with my ex-husband and avoid facing court.”
“Debbie has kept me one step ahead of the game throughout this process, due to her indepth knowledge and experience with situations like mine. She has a wonderfully direct and honest approach, which led to a favourable outcome for me. Without her ongoing commitment and expertise I am certain my affairs would have been resolved less favourably.”
– Belinda Retama
“Would recommend Lara Anstie highly for any family law matters that require attention to detail and expertise in this field.”

“I was tasked with settling my mother’s 20 year old estate, which was by no means either a straight forward or simple affair. Ian Clairs was recommended by a colleague and proved to be more than worth the recommendation. With changes in law, disputes between beneficiaries, Ian gave the effort, patience, knowledge, understanding and guidance to what was at times, a very frustrating saga and resulted in a more than satisfactory conclusion.”
– Graham Billson
“My partner’s property settlement was not straightforward. It took 7-8 years to finalise. Lara Anstie, from Clairs Keeley, ably handled the case throughout this period. She was always confident and well prepared when dealing with Magistrates and Judges in Court. There was a mass of documentation and subpoenas. Lara was organized and thorough in dealing with this avalanche of legal paperwork.
Her initial choice of barrister was unsuited to our needs. To Lara’s credit she recognized this and arranged for a new barrister. This new barrister proved to be a game changer. He and Lara were a formidable team and secured a good outcome for my partner.”
– Graeme Rymill
“The team at Clairs Keeley helped us manage our marriage break up with collaborative Practice. It provided us with support and guidance of our own lawyers without going to court.
We were able to create an environment of open communication to ensure the needs of all parties involved were understood and where possible met. Clairs Keeley helped us create an ongoing amicable relationship which has lasted 7 years since our separation.”
