Separation and divorce are possibly the most painful things anyone can go through during their life.  From nowhere your life is turned upside down you don’t know who to turn to.  It was my experience that I felt lost and alone and very frightened of what the future held.  Initially I went to another family law solicitor who did nothing more than write agitating letters to my now ex husband breathing life in the pain and suffering of the event.  In tears I was telling a friend of my experience and she advised me that her ex husband had used Pearsons Family Law when they separated and was extremely impressed at how thorough they were.  I contacted Helen Chetcuti the next day and from our first meeting I knew I could trust her and she had my best interests at heart.  From the outset she supported me through the whole process.  She provided sound and experienced advise every step of the way. I had amazing barristers through out the process who also did everything they could to get the best possible outcome. The whole team at Pearsons were amazing being supportive, caring and providing the very best service and advise. I have come to consider each and every member of the Pearsons team as friends who helped me through a very difficult time in my life.  I have recommended Helen and her team to friends and collegues who have found themselves in similar circumstances to myself.  If you want a family lawyer who is sound, experienced, compassionate and understanding look no further than Pearsons Family Lawyers.

The process of going through a divorce is daunting to say the least, I'm glad I had Joe on my side throughout.

From the beginning to end I found Joe and his team to be very supportive and Joe was very clear and direct in explaining the processes and answering my questions. He was committed to letting me know where I stood which left no room for surprises.  Going through divorce and property settlement is a confronting experience but having a team of professionals behind me gave me the confidence to know that I would be guided by the best.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Joe and his team at Pearsons, their attention to details was first class.

As we are venturing into IVF and surrogacy we required some information with regards to the laws.  Leanne was wonderful with her expertise with all our legal queries and also considerate, caring and willing to help with such a delicate area.  I would have no hesitations in contacting Leanne for any legal requirements in the future that we may need.

 Lisa

I have been a Pearsons client for around 8 months.

During this time I have found the Pearsons team to be reliable, friendly and dedicated to open and regular communication.

I have found that I always know where I am at in the process and everything has been explained in simple terms that can be followed easily.

Meeting times and appointments have always been flexible, short and get to the main points very quickly.  Telephone hook ups have also been a very productive way to keep the case moving and minimising travel time so I can focus on my day to day business priorities more.

As most family law cases are very stressful I would not hesitate in recommending Pearsons due to their personalised approach and empathy for the intense and personal nature of the task.

Some life challenges require the support and expertise of special people.

Joseph Schepis along with his team of 'professionals' brought about an encouraging outcome for my son and I. The service provided was at all times delivered with honesty and integrity Joseph is strategic and a true master of his craft.

I am forever grateful to him and his team of angels.

Thank you

Elizabeth

Dear Bani, Firstly thank you from the depth of my heart for all your work to achieve the perfect result.

Duncan

 

I’d like to thank Leanne and her team for a great work. I had a lot of difficulty to gain access to my son as my ex-wife used him as a tool to get to me after the separation. Leanne and her lawyers continuously put in materials throughout the court case, exposing lies and put forward the truth, eventually these evidences pressured her to negotiate and we reached an agreement that avoided a lengthy trial. My special thanks to Molly whose diligence and quick turn over during the last weeks of the case, allowed my case to be settle out of court.

Bani, Suzan & Kim - thank you very much for assisting with this process over the past few years.  It has been very much appreciated.

Adrian

I really appreciate what Joseph is doing for me, I'm very thankful for his help, thank you.

Tony

Greetings Bani, thank you so much for the advanced good news.  Thank you for the great work you have done for me.

Donna

 

I was referred by a friend to Pearsons Lawyers, specifically Leanne, to support and guide me through my Divorce.  Divorce is definitely not an easy situation to go through, though having Leanne as my support and glimmer of hope was just what I needed.

Leanne and her Associates provided me the strength, advice and guided me to a solution that would make it easy for me to move on with my life.  Her tag line of 'I love options' provided me with the warmth and commitment that I needed from my representation.  I never felt alone in the process.  Leanne also never made me question myself or my situation, she was just the right 'legal angel' that I needed to get me through.  I would not hesitate to recommend Leanne and her team to anyone who requires legal support!

Leanne, thank you for everthying!

Bree

I really do very much appreciate yours and the Pearsons team's support. It has been such a professional and warm experience during challenging times.

Thank you so much for everything. 

Laura

Firstly, I’d like to thank you for the professional manner in which you & your staff have handled this matter.

I thank you sincerely for all your efforts over the past 14 -16 months. Your care and eye for detail was very much appreciated. You made what could have been a very difficult process quite bearable and for this I thank you. I also felt at all times that I was in the very best of hands and this gave me great confidence.

Your staff, from the girls at reception right through to your wonderful secretaries also could not be faulted in their efficiency and caring nature.

Thank you all so much.

Going through a separation with 4 children, no job and an impossible to please ex husband, I was referred to Helen by a friend and was instantly pleased with her professionalism and down to earth nature. Helen guided and supported me and my decisions at a very emotional time, ensuring I understood the lawyer jargon. She made one aspect of the separation less stressful and I would highly recommend her to anyone going through a similar situation. I would like to thank the whole team at Pearsons for their help.

Kathy

Helen, Tara and team,

Let me take this opportunity to thank you for all for the work related with the entire divorce and settlement.  I am please to advise that the original Divorce Order arrived in the mail this morning.

Thanks again Stephanie, I am very happy with your service and the outcome.

Laura

At a time in my life that has been both traumatic and unstable, I have worked very closely with Joe Schepis and Lorien over a 12 month period,  but I must say all the team at Pearsons were supportive, compassionate and direct in their support of my matter.  I was constantly kept informed along the way through phone calls and emails of where things were at and copies of all correspondence were forwarded to me.  My calls were answered promptly and all my concerns were addressed.  I was informed and involved throughout all decision making in the matter.

 Thank you Joe and your team for supporting me through this horrible time.  I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.

Hi Bani, That's great news! Thank you for your prompt action.  Great outcome in good time!

Suzan, thank you very much for helping expedite this.  Very happy with how quickly the watch list has been discharged.

Lilian

I would like to express my special thanks to my solicitor Mr. Joseph, who managed my property settlement for the second time. In both property settlements he was excellent, responsive clear and very helpful. Unforeseen circumstances arose which were dealt with efficiently and professionally. I had total trust in Mr. Joseph’s competence. I could not have asked for better. You did an excellent job, fast and efficient and always responsive to all of my questions Mr. Joseph.

Thanks Leanne, you are as always a gem.  BTW your reputation goes before you.  You are highly thought off and are known as the best family lawyer in the state.  I've always known that just brilliant when you hear others saying that.

Leanne Abela was my lawyer from 2013-2015 regarding my family law matter. Leanne’s wealth of legal experience and  knowledge, her professional manner, her ability to relate to my personal circumstances and her holistic strategic thinking made the entire legal process easier for me to understand and deal with. I was continuously kept updated during the entire process, from initial discussions and negotiations, to mediation and eventually court. Leanne’s communication is clear and she explained the options and possibilities before  providing her legal advice. Leanne has a network of highly experiences barristers, who are just as committed as her, to getting the best results for their client. The legal outcome that resulted totally exceeded my expectations and this is solely due to Leanne experience along with her team of committed staff. Throughout the 2 years I was represented by Pearsons, all the staff were very supportive and eased my anxieties leading up to and during court proceedings. The entire Pearsons team were friendly, thorough, reliable, experienced and professional. I have recommended Pearsons Lawyers to friends, family and my professional networks. Those who have used Pearsons Lawyers, and in particular the services of Leanne Abela, agree she is a smart experienced woman, who does the very best for her clients whilst jointly directing a highly competitive family law firm that has a depth of legal experience and is results driven.

 Thankyou Natalie for taking my calls after 5pm and answering all my questions – you are such a gem!!

Thankyou Allie for emailing ‘drafts’ and then making ‘adjustments’ without any fuss –  I like your style…

Lastly, my biggest thankyou to you Leanne for your patience, advice, straight talking style (which I love!!) and of course your legal guidance.

 What an experience and what an outcome!! We kicked some serious butt and sealed the deal that Pearsons Lawyers is a leader in Family Law…

I just wanted to let you know how impressed I have been with the service I have received from Stephanie Reid. I had tried for over a year to come to an amicable resolution regarding a property settlement with my ex, but with no success. Stephanie was recommended to me by a friend and I am so thankful.

From my initial phone consultation with Stephanie, I felt like a weight had been lifted and there would finally be resolution. I vividly recall that first consultation; it was a rollercoaster of emotions and Stephanie's willingness to do most of our dealings via phone or email due to the fact that I lived in Cockatoo helped immensely. She gave me realistic expectations and was mindful of the small asset pool and that my finances were limited. It was a very emotional journey filled with tears and laughs but I always felt like I was in safe hands and had full trust in Stephanie. Most importantly, I got the result and closure I needed for myself and my children.

Stephanie is definitely an asset to your company and very experienced in her work. I would highly recommend her if any of my friends found themselves in a similar predicament. She made a horrible experience more bearable.

My name is Steven, I have had Pearsons Lawyers look after my marital affairs over the past 6 months and I have found them excellent in helping me resolve my financial matters with my separation recently.  My experience with my lawyer has been great and with her knowledge and help as well as experience in advising and resolving my problems over these months.  I must admit the fees where costly and which I wasn't so happy with but it was prolonged due to the other party's involvement and prolonging this matter, but nether the less in the end it came good and the out come better than I expected.  I would not hesitate to spread the work around to anyone if they where ever in need of a lawyer, Pearsons Lawyers would be recommended due to there experience and knowledge in the marital field and their recommendations for the best final outcome their client can obtain such as it was in my case.

Steve.

When I first realised that I was requiring the services of a lawyer, I was completely overwhelmed and apprehensive. I made an appointment with Helen, and right from that initial appointment, I could see why she was going to be an integral part of my case. Helen provided a straight forward, yet knowledgeable logic to every action she recommended. Helen kept me on point and would not allow me to derail her with side issues that were not relevant.  Helen’s confidence and years of experience provided her with credibility that I felt I could trust. Helen’s work ethic was of the highest standard and she was also very professional in her work. I have no reservations in recommending the services of Helen on such family law matters.

Thank you so much for everything you did for me during my separation and settlement.  I really appreciate all the help and support you gave me during the stressful and confusing time I went through.  With your help it certainly lessened my anxiety. 

Lisa, you were awesome reponding immediately to all my concerns.

Joe, you have a fantastic team there! Thanks again.

Laura

I thought I would  take this opportunity to thank all the team at Pearsons for handling my case so far. No matter what the judges finial verdict is you had presented my case in a highly professional manner and in a clear and direct way, also  a special thank you for all of Natalies  work.  She showed great attention to the detail and was always available to answer any question that I didn't understand.

 Also thank you for organizing Paul Hannan to represent me in court. After watching lots of other Barristers on my 9 occasions in court I quickly realized how lucky I was to have him representing me. He was always clear and concise and very straight forward. I was amazed at his ability to be across all of the details  and he  left nothing to chance. He was fantastic with his cross examination of the witnesses to the point they sang like canneries .

Joe Schepis and the entire team at Pearson's Lawyers in Glenroy are efficient and most importantly very effective.

I would definitely recommend Pearson's Lawyers to friends and family!

Leanne and her team provided knowledge guidance throughout the litigation processs whilst understanding my situation and concerns.  All advise was concise and was always provided in a timely, compassionate and responsive manner.

 

Leanne Abel acted on our behalf in a family law matter over a period of 6 months. It ws a very stressful time for us and Leanne made the process much easier.  She always acted in our best interest and communicated with us at regular intervals.  She assisted us to understand our rights and ensured that we avoided unnecessary expense and conflict by recommending alternative forms of dispute resolution.  Above all, Leanne was fair, frank and fearless and we will be eternally grateful for her diligence and ethical approach.

Linda and Deb

I feel like an enormous weight has been lifted from my shoulders

Thank you so much for all of your and your firms hard work on my behalf.  I am so grateful.  My life will be greatly improved and I certainly wouldn't have succeeded in anything close to these conditions had we not faught so hard.

I am forever in your debt.

Naomi.

Once again I need to thank yourself and your staff for the great work and advise that has been provided to myself over this very difficult and emotional time.

The advice you have provided from our first meeting has always been direct and to the point and I always knew what my options were and knew where I stood.

The outcome on Friday was nothing short of unbelievable.

Thanks for all your help.

 I will definitely be recommending Pearsons to others.

Thank you for your work this year in making a difficult time that little bit easier. I really appreciate all you have done.

- Chris

Thank you to all the staff at Pearsons Lawyers for their guidance and assistance through a very difficult time in my life. Stephanie and Allison handled my case with dignity, respect and sensitivity. Thanks to the professional guidance received from Stephanie, my family and I have been able to resolve many complex issues that we would otherwise not have been able to understand.

My one request throughout the long process was to ensure that my former husband was treated with respect and I am grateful that everyone involved was able to uphold this important aspect for me. Although my children are both adults, it was nonetheless a difficult time for them too. For their sake, I wanted the legal process to be as honest and transparent as possible. This was also achieved. 

For me, simply saying 'thankyou' does not convey the heart-felt gratitude I feel for the professional way in which my whole matter was handled.

- Alene

Going through the family court system was a tough and emotional battle with many ups and downs... Having Pearsons represent me over a two year period made that journey easier. Leanne consistently gave the best legal advice and her attention to detail was second to none. Importantly, she always strived to keep costs down. My final outcome now allows me to have shared care of my two beautiful children. My word of advice is to be completely honest throughout the entire process, don't get disheartened by the ups and downs along the way... stick to the righteous path!

- Steven

When I found myself in the turmoil of a rather difficult divorce settlement, I employed the services of Leanne Abela. Leanne's direct, no-nonsense approach was exactly what I needed to sort out where I stood and to successfully finalise a settlement agreement. Due to my ex-husband's difficult nature, the case drew on for nearly two years but Leanne's knowledge and patience eventually brought about a satisfactory resolution. Leanne is the hardest working person I have met, from agreeing to have 6am phone calls or late appointments to suit my schedule. I highly recommend Leanne as a person who will get the job done.

- Kim

Key moments of truth require first class services and Leanne's team did just that. I found Pearsons to be professional and flexible and provided me with much needed clarity whenever it was sought. Leanne's experience and approach gave me an enormous level of comfort and for that I am extremely grateful.

- Maria

Joseph was very helpful and attentive in the services he provided for myself in regard to my case. My experience with Pearsons was extremely professional and smooth in the transition of my situation. The staff at Pearsons were also helpful and followed up with me in a prompt manner to successfully complete the result in my case. I thank Joseph and his assistants for allowing this to be a smooth journey and I am content with how everything was dealt with.

- Ebru 

I contacted Leanne to help me sort out my financial mess. She was very professional, explained the facts, and the matter was settled soon after. I would not hesitate to recommend both Pearsons and Leanne Abela. Thank you for all you have done for my family.

- Karla

Thanks very much for the much needed assistance and support you have given me through my struggle. My outcome was positive and I got more than I expected, not just in settlements but in compassion and understanding too. I would not hesitate to recommend Pearsons to anyone.

- Maria

I would like to say that my experience with Helen was extremely satisfying. From the initial appointment, she was very straightforward and professional with her advice. She made it easy to understand how to proceed. I had full confidence in her ability the entire time. If I rang or emailed with a query, she always got back to me. I would be happy to recommend her to anyone I know. Please pass on my thanks.

- Linda

Thank you again Leanne. You have really contributed to me developing an inner strength and confidence that I have not known for a long time.

- Rebecca

Thank you Leanne from the bottom of my heart for what you have accomplished for me.

- Susan

Thank you very much; I truly appreciate all the help you have given me. Please thank Leanne and the team at Pearsons for the wonderful job.

- Teresa

I would like to make comment about the excellent service that Pearsons Lawyers, in particular Joe Schepis has provided.

I have used this agency for the last few years. Joe is efficient, strategic in his planning and gets results. He has been excellent in resolving issues for me. I would have no hesitation in endorsing Joe Schepis in an area of Family Law.

- Walter

Dear Leanne and the team at Pearsons,

Thank you so much for the kind, professional and supportive way you have handled my matter.

I felt supported and reassured after each meeting and found all your advice to be valuable and accurate.  You have helped me through a very difficult time with honesty and friendship and I have valued this so much; it was very reassuring.

All my best and thanks so much,

- Chris

Thank you so much for handling my complicated case in such a professional yet caring way.  You were the only voice of reason in a sea of bewilderment for me.

- Katrina

I have required the expert services of Pearsons Lawyers and those of Joseph Schepis for approximately 9 months regarding my impending divorce.

Joe has been very helpful with the preparation of all my documents and court proceedings. Most importantly, all legal matters have been carefully explained to me and handled in a professional and sensitive manner. I highly recommend Joseph Schepis and Pearsons Lawyers.

- Stan

Thank you again for all that you have done for me and my family. You are one in a million and I could not have gotten through these times without you.

- Paula

I have been a client of Pearsons now for many years due to the high recommendations forwarded to me by another solicitor some eight years ago. I have and will continue to offer them to people whom I have known and come to know that also require the unquestionable and professional services Pearsons have provided to me over that time.

These services have always been what I have and do still consider to be of the highest standard and which have also become a mirrored opinion of a number of my friends which have also become clients of yours.

Throughout my relationship with your firm, not once have I ever questioned your firm's dedication and devotion to myself as a client, in delivering what I still today consider to be a service that is delivered with the highest integrity and that of equally the highest level of regard for their clients.

- Godwin

I would like to say a huge thank you to Bani Mishra of Pearsons for the fantastic representation of my Family Law situation over the last year or so. I was always informed of every situation and matter along the way including the cost situation as well. I never felt nervous when I spoke to Bani, as Bani was always direct and very honest with me to which I thank you all so much, from Clare on the front desk, what a fantastic representative to Pearsons.

I couldn't have done it without Pearsons.

- Julie

I went to see Pearsons in regard to organising a divorce. I dealt with Joseph Schepis and in a timely and efficient manner my instructions were followed.

Everything was explained to me and within the appointed time my application for divorce was granted by the Registrar. The account for services was itemised and clear.

All in all, I was satisfied with the process conducted by Pearsons and would recommend them for any legal matters.

- Vanessa

Leanne Abela was recommended to me to help achieve my property settlement and I am so glad she was. She and her team are efficient and persistent. Leanne herself is both professional and sympathetic.

She also went out of her way to contact me after hours when necessary when she saw opportunities to move things along and to ultimately save me money. I know, because my ex told me some time after the dispute had settled, that his (more expensive) lawyers were completely unable to keep up with Leanne.

Thank you. It was a huge relief.

The toll this has taken on our family this last year is immeasurable and we are very pleased this chapter at least has come to an end.

Once again I thank you and your team at Pearsons for not only for your legal representation, in which I will never really accept the circumstances in that you were required, but more importantly your support and compassion along the way.

- David

With little time to respond to an urgent court application, and feeling out of my depth, I sought advice through the grapevine about where to find a good family lawyer. The answer was Pearsons.

No lawyer is "cheap", but with Pearsons you do get what you pay for. They also work with excellent barristers and the perfect one was chosen for my particular circumstances. Faced with seemingly like insurmountable challenges, Pearsons worked for my child's best interests and through a great deal of expertise, some time, and a little serendipity, my child was the eventual winner.

We are extremely happy and I know this would not have been possible without Pearsons.

- Simon

I am writing this letter to express my appreciation to all at Pearsons, I feel I was fortunate to have picked the right team.

I found Leanne Abela to be very professional and knowledgeable about Family Law who, without doubt, had my interest at heart - even though I didn't some of the time.

All the ladies - Lisa, Allison, Jackie - a great team - friendly, helpful and supportive.

Looking back I feel I have sailed through the ordeal without too much trauma - thanks to you all.

I would highly recommend Pearsons to anyone going through divorce and property settlement.

- Mara

I approached Pearsons April 2010 after being recommended to see Joseph Schepis.

I can't thank him enough for his sincerity on all occasions and deeply appreciated his professionalism, integrity and honesty during a trying and fearful time in my life and for the excellent service himself and his co-workers provided throughout my case.

- Mandy

Although the process of going through a divorce can be quite daunting I was very happy to have been represented by Pearsons.

From the moment I arrived in the building I found the staff to be very supportive and Joe was very clear and direct in explaining the processes and answering my questions. He was committed to letting me know where I stood which left no room for surprises. Going through divorce and property settlement is a confronting experience but having a team of professionals behind me gave me the confidence to know that I would be guided by the best.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Pearsons because their attention to detail was first rate and their staff were always available to answer questions or explain the process.

- Donna

I would happily recommend Pearsons Family Law for their attention to detail and professionalism. Helen handled my matter with dedication and empathy.

- Adelle

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Leanne and the staff at Pearsons for providing me with the required Family Law advisory services and for facilitating the settlemet process for me in a professional and expeditious manner. Over 9 months, your guidance, professionalism and prompt attendance to resolve matters and the sensitivity shown in addressing my children's needs were greatly appreciated.

During this time I have learnt to appreciate the complexities of dealing with separation, managing matters associates with settlement and the importance of getting professional assistance, and would have no hesitancy in recommending your sevices in this regard.

Your finalisation of matters has now allowed me and my family to move forward with confidence.

- George

Thank you for all your much appreciated help.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to you.

- Silvana, Danielle & Adrian

To Leanne and all your lovely staff,

Just a quick note to say thanks very much for the much needed assistance and support you gave me through my struggle. My outcome was positive and I got more than I had expected not just in settlements, but in compassion and understanding too.

I would not hesitate to recommend Pearsons Lawyers to anyone.

- Maria

I have never required the assistance of a lawyer before and in  my case I lived in fear for my children and I was concerned for my own safety. Leanne was reassuring from the first meeting and during a difficult journey she was there to guide me. Her ability to  help me navigate and understand the court process reduced my level of stress and created an atmosphere of trust. I would recommend her to anybody requiring an outcome in Family Law.

 - Nadia

I really appreciate everything you have done for us and the great communication along the way.

- Anne

Thank you both for competence & tolerance this year, I will not hesitate in recommending you to anyone else I know who needs your assistance.

- Margaret

I was referred to Helen Chetcuti by a good friend of mine.

After our initial visit I was put at ease by her sound advice, as my situation was delicate due to two very young children with autism.  Throughout  the process she guided me through every step of the way, reassuring me time and time again that my children always came first and this was done with the least possible disruption to them on her part.

Helen will do what is best for you (her client) and will always contact you with sound advice (calming you at times).
I have not hesitated to refer others to her and will keep referring for as long as she will be practicing Family Law.

My sincere thanks to you Helen, from me and my children.

- Carmel

Thank you and your staff for everything you have done in relation to my case this year.

- Debbie

Going through a separation with 4 children, no job and an impossible to please ex husband, I was referred to Helen by a friend and was instantly pleased with her professionalism and down to earth nature. Helen guided and supported me and my decisions at a very emotional time, ensuring I understood the lawyer jargon. She made one aspect of the separation less stressful and I would highly recommend her to anyone going through a similar situation. I would like to thank the whole team at Pearsons for their help.

Kathy

I was referred to Pearsons Lawyers by 2 friends and I can say with confidence that I have no regrets in choosing Pearsons to help me through a very difficult and stressful time of my life.  I have received excellent service and also I like the fact that my needs and personality are catered for.  I highly recommend Pearsons Lawyers and I wish the firm and all the staff success and growth in the future.  I am especially grateful to Joe for all the support, patience and understanding that he has given me and I will never forget this and I am forever thankful.
