What Our Clients Are Saying
I was referred to Kathy by a friend who has used Kathy for his family law matter and his will. Kathy was really knowledgeable and clearly explained the law to me and whether I had a claim on my ex-wife’s will. I would recommend Kathy’s services to anyone and would not hesitate to use East Coast Family Lawyers again in the future.
Aiden from Terrigal

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.
