Thank you for your very friendly and professional help in getting all of our affairs sorted in such a short time. We are very glad we came to Southern Waters Legal, ad we’re really appreciative of the professional manner and advice with which we received.

Family law can be very daunting but Leona Bennett removed all the confusion of the ‘legal jargon’ and step by step walked me through the family court process. Leona made it simple and I always had a full understanding of what was happening and made clear decisions for the final outcome. Leona and her team were there for me, working their wisdom to always provide greater clarity and support.

Southern Waters Legal are professional and friendly from the first initial phone call and make you feel like no question is too silly to ask in relation to your matter and you don’t go away with more questions or not understanding what was happening. I would recommend Southern Water Legal to anyone needing to resolve a Family Law matter by a professional and friendly firm who care about their clients.

Simon, Leona and all their staff dealt with my Estate Planning and Family Law matter in such a professional manner, I cannot thank them enough. The care and patience shown to me during the time of my matters was truly amazing! Again thank you all so much.

I have been a client of Southern Waters Legal for a number of years now. It is at specific times in our life that you really value integrity and honesty in those you deal with. Simon and Leona and the team have helped me organise our affairs at a very tough time in my life, they have provided wise counsel, legal support and hand holding as I went through the sale of my family home and moving to new premises. I have received possibly the best financial advice that is reaping rewards for me now. Thank you to a wonderful team of professionals. Thank you
