WHEN LIFE HAPPENS a Great thanks to the team at Family Lawyers Mackay for assisting me when Life came to a sudden stop. They have not sugar coat the the process. "There is no such thing as a winner in a Family separation" , but brought it into perspective for me. Together we had a fair outcome, and fair is the cornerstone to rebuild one's life! One can not ask for more than that.

I have found everyone I have encountered at Family Lawyers Mackay very helpful. Ian Field whom I dealt with provided me with a comprehensive summary of the issues, including some I had not even considered before. And then, rather than embark on a long, hostile and expensive litigation, he brokered a negotiated resolution acceptable to both parties. The final result was very much more than what I had hoped for and the costs were significantly reduced based on his negotiations
