What our clients say about our service


Dear Kathy,

I wish to thank you for all your support you have given me and would highly recommend you to anyone else that is going through a divorce. The one thing I wish to stress to any of your potential clients is the fact that they really need to use your services as soon as possible rather than wait and try it alone. As you were aware the “lets try it without legal intervention” turned sour.

No longer amicable, it had become an awful situation both emotionally & financially. On top of that, it had dragged on for well over a year with no positive outcome. I had no option but to seek legal advice to allow a closure.

You were absolutely wonderful. Not only in showing great compassion & understanding in such a difficult situation, but your outstanding legal knowledge & professional manner is exceptional.

I lost count on numerous occasions, that the ex husband’s solicitor got it wrong. Had I done this alone, who knows what I may have signed. This just proved that you really are an expert in your field. Thanks again, and with kind regards.

Thank you so much for the amazing work you performed with our case, we could not have asked for a better outcome. You were compassionate, firm and fair & had our case completed promptly. You came highly recommended to us & we will have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody seeking a great lawyer.

From our whole family, thanks again.

“East Coast Family Lawyers were highly recommended to me by a close friend. Kathy Matri and her team provided an excellent level of service, I was pleased with both their high level of professionalism and the constant concern for my best interests.

Kathy outlined from the very beginning what my options were and I always felt well informed of the status of my case. Initially, I had some reservations taking court action and didn’t know what to expect, however the team answered all my questions and I felt reassured by them on key decisions that needed to be made, throughout the process.

I would feel highly confident in recommending East Coast Family Lawyers to others”


Thank you so much. You were wonderful!!

Words can’t express how much I appreciate the work you did. Kathy, you were knowledgeable, kind, supportive, understanding and tenacious.  I got an excellent result at minimal cost. I would recommend your firm to anyone a hundred times over.

Regards, Alison (surname withheld)

Thank you for making this an easy and painless process

You made it quiet enjoyable, if that is possible. I have had to use legal services in the past and always found it to be like having teeth pulled. I will be definitely seeking your services if needed in the future.
Thanks again
