Property settlement and parenting matter

Andrew McCormack of Thynne + Macartney was highly recommended to me by a Barrister I know and trust. I had previously dealt with two other law firms over a six-month period who just weren’t making any progress with my matter.

I was looking for a representative who could provide accurate advice and set realistic goals to achieve a satisfactory outcome. Andrew was able to take the emotion out of the situation while dealing with the opposing solicitor while showing empathy for my situation.

From the very first correspondence, Andrew had with the opposing firm; it was obvious he was seriously efficient and was not going to engage in anything that did not relate to our core objectives of achieving a settlement with class and dignity.

It was important to me that I did not lower my standards during this dispute while at the same time being represented by a strong, efficient, very well organised solicitor. The standard of correspondence and advice provided was first class and far above that of the previous two firms I had engaged.

The net result was that after about six months of letters going back and forwards between other firms, Andrew was able to achieve a settlement for me in a very short period of time without the need for litigation or mediation. His representation has allowed me to move on with my life quickly and allowed me to look back and say I dealt with the breakdown of my marriage without dropping my standards which I’ll always be grateful for.

Andrew was recommended as someone who is very experienced, knowledgeable and efficient, yet someone who is not afraid of a fight if that’s required. That’s exactly what I received with Andrew and is something I’ll be forever grateful for.

I’d highly recommend Andrew and Thynne and Macartney to anyone going through a family law situation. I have already made a referral to his firm and will continue to do so.

Thanks very much Andrew, I really do appreciate what you have done for me in such a short space of time.
