Four and a half years ago, I had to make one of the most difficult decisions of my life. Little did I know that the fight had only just begun. What followed in the aftermath was nothing short of heart breaking. When asking a friend for advice, she immediately gave me Denise Dimond’s number and said “this is the lady you are looking for!” Feeling very uncertain, I met with Denise and was immediately impressed with her direct approach to helping me solve problems with my ex.
Denise was strongly grounded every step of the way. When I wasn’t strong enough to deal with the mess, Denise provided me with a solid and stable support. This not only gave me great piece of mind but it gave me time to be the best Mum I could be to my two children.
It has been an absolute honour to work with Denise and her colleagues during this very difficult phase of my life. Their professionalism, knowledge and experience assisted us to achieve a very positive and fair result. I am very grateful for the manner in which problems were handled. Denise and her team have a very well balanced understanding of family law and mediation. They are polite, professional, compassionate and tough to beat.
Many thanks to the Dimond Family Lawyers team (Denise, Erryn, Gemma and Grace) for providing me with incredible support and strength when I most needed it. I would highly recommend Denise and her team to anyone.
I recently engaged Dimond Family Lawyers to assist me with my separation and divorce.
My personal circumstances were not easy and Dimond Family Lawyers assisted in an exemplary manner and proved to be very knowledgeable and helpful at all times.
Every query and issue was addressed in a timely manner on all occasions.
I have no hesitatation in recommending Dimond Family Lawyers to anyone looking for assistance and help with a separation or divorce.
I received no-nonsense & well communicated advice from Gemma, with a satisfying outcome. I have and will continue to make referrals to Dimonds.
I recently engaged Dimond Lawyers to finalise my legal financial separation with my ex-wife…Their approach in dealing with my situation with understanding and professionalism made the whole experience very comfortable and painless resulting in a good outcome for my ex-wife and I.
I am now free to plan ahead and rebuild my life without the fear of someone down the track asking for more money.
Thank you to all at Dimond Lawyers
I was recommended to Gemma at Dimond Family Lawyers by a colleague, following the breakdown of my marriage. Dealing with Family Law can often be a difficult time, with emotions mixed in with legal, practical, financial and other issues.
I found Gemma to be knowledgeable, professional, understanding & patient. She gave good, clear and sound advice in a way that anyone can understand. Even me. She was sympathetic but also firm in a practical way and achieved a settlement that was mutually agreeable to myself & my ex-wife.
I thought the fees charged to be reasonable and have no hesitation in recommending her, & Dimond Family Lawyers, should you need their assistance. (Also their coffee’s OK).
It is very difficult to word correctly a description of my experience whilst legally dividing assets between my estranged husband and myself.
I’m sure most people would understand this would be the most hurtful heartbreaking and life changing occurrence in our lives. The thought of some greedy lawyer cashing in on my pain added the word ‘mortified’ to that description.
When I first met Gemma Richardson she made no hesitation to inform us of the cost involved in hiring her to be my lawyer. I had the right to legal aid so I did have another option that was free. I had already met with legal aid and he told me I would have to do what was demanded by the applicant (my husband) I knew this could not be right and felt he had not read my case properly. This was confirmed by Gemma and I felt she understood I was not being greedy or unfair and she said she could prove my right to what I was entitled to in the division of our net asset pool.
Throughout the time that I hired Gemma to represent me I never once felt that she was money hungry in the slightest, instead she actually suggested so many ways for me to save money on my legal bill.
Besides her consideration of money, the fact that there was no doubt at all that Gemma really did care about my wellbeing and my future was beyond priceless. To see her fist pump the air and saying “yes” after hanging up from my husband’s lawyer bought tears of joy to eyes!
The outcome of my case was settled fairly thanks to Gemma… I would not for one second hesitate to recommend Dimond Family Lawyers to anyone and have done so on many occasions.
Thank you so much Gemma and Dimond Family Lawyers, I am forever grateful.
I have used the services of Dimond Family Lawyers for many years now and have always been very pleased with their services.
I have always found them to be exceedingly professional and thorough when dealing with issues of family law. The amount of research, reading and preparation that goes into any paperwork which is lodged into the courts or when required to represent you in the courts, is exceptional.
On top of that, they are exceedingly approachable and caring, which, considering a lot of what they are dealing with is highly emotional for the client, the ability to show support in this area is a major asset.
They respond as quickly as possible to any email or phone query and help make the process of dealing with divorce, separation or other family issues a lot less stressful for their client.
I would highly recommend them to anyone who may require their services.
Denise and her team have been first class for an extended period in their work with me, not only being practical, balanced and objective at all times but also reflective of my morals, beliefs and principals. A great team and great service.
