“Dear Fidan
Thank you so much for all that you have done for me over the last 3.5 years. It was a long road and at times very testing and frustrating. I do hope you not have the pleasure of coming into contact with the other side ever again. It will stay with me for many years I am sure and many stories later. 
You were amazing the whole way through the process, calm, reassuring, professional, supportive and showed empathy which for me was a big part of getting through the case. I know why you are so good at your job and if only my ex had a family law specialist the time to settle the case would have been half, I am sure. 
Take care, thanks so much.”

Just wanted to say thankyou. You did a great job today. You are right it wasn’t the outcome I really wanted! But, it was probably the fairest and for that I thank you.”

“Good morning,
Just letting you know that your “draft with your instructions” for my affidavit makes it so much easier for me to write it than the ones I had to write before. Thank you for that, well done!”
V. 18/12/2016

“Thanks for everything Fidan, I really appreciate that you have done for me.
Wishing you a merry Christmas.”
R. 13/12/2016

“Hi Fidan,
I would like to thank you very much for all the time, effort and patience you and your team put into my case.
I know my case was not the “normal” / “text book” case that you would experience, however I really appreciated you and your team listening to my concerns (when I had them), without rushing me or cutting me off, when I called the office to voice them.
Yes I know I am a “demanding” person, and in this case client. At least I say things as they are and I appreciate being told the truth, brutal as it may be. You were never fazed and your team was never frazzled. You are a true professional and your team reflected your standards. I am also grateful for your saying “We are problem solvers”, this was a saying I would say to clients and somewhere along the line I had forgotten that everything has a solution, it may need compromise however there is always a solution.
I wish you all the success and happiness that comes your way as you deserve it. You are a hard working individual who strives for positive/best outcomes not only for your clients but for those you come in contact with.
I hope you have a great evening and a restful long weekend.”
T. 30/09/2016

V. 9/09/2016

“Dear Sirs, this is to thank your firm for taking and conducting my affairs since February this year; in particular to your family law team who handled the issues and sometimes difficulties, in such a professional and efficient way.

“Hi, ….thanks again for all you’ve helped me with. It has been much more difficult than I thought it would be at the start, but i guess that is what everyone experiences. I’ll be in touch when divorce proceedings are initiated. All the very best to you for 2015. Cheers.”
M. 30/01/2015

“Hi, As our time dealing with each other comes to a close I just cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for me. You have many talents in the legal field and the couple that stand out to me include: 
• Your attention to detail, I could not believe how thick my two files were you had at the court hearing – and you knew where to look to respond to either judge or the other side, 
• Your pro activeness – you were constantly actioning my case and continually chasing up people to meet your/our timeframes. 
• Your strategy – brilliant the way you argued that my superannuation should not be split. I appreciated the hours you worked back especially one night when you put the four options to me in one layout which made it easy to decide the tact I should follow, 
• Your courtesy extended to me – I’m 60 and never been involved with a lawyer. You are friendly and made me feel very welcome each time we met, you are easy to talk to and I did not feel inadequate when asking my questions. I hope you also have a special Christmas and the New Year brings you good cheer. All the best and thanks.”
A. 16/12/2014

“Well done, you exceeded my expectations and delivered, love your work, thanks.”
A. 10/12/2014

“Hi, Just thought I would write to thank you so much for all your hard work leading up to the case. Your structuring of my affidavit ensured Judge Henderson and the otherside were able to get a clear picture of the past events to achieve the outcome on the day. Both XXXXX and I are truly grateful for all your hard work.”
T. 10/12/2014

“Hi Fidan, Never got to do my speech, but if I did it would have gone something like this… Thanks for telling me (several times ) to start the court proceedings. Thanks for telling me at the mediation all you hear from me is what my wife wants, and nothing about what I want. Most of all, thanks for providing sound advice every step of the way. It enabled me to ultimately make the right decisions. I hope not to require your services in the future, but you will certainly hear from me if custody needs to be formalised. Thanks Fidan.”
P. 27/10/2014

Dear Fidan, Thank you so much for all your assistance during this difficult time. I was astounded by your knowledge, work ethics and willingness to advise me on matters. The law world is certainly foreign to me and i am glad there are people like you who seem to have a grasp on its complexities. Thank you once again.
– A.F. 17/06/2011

“I was impressed with your very informative seminar talks and again when we met at your office. The information pack that I received at the seminar was extremely useful. Your approach is very different to that of most lawyers, in that you genially come across as wanting to help your clients without incurring extravagant fees in the process. Your approach inspired me with confidence that you are the best team to deal with my matrimonial situation”

– K.B 25/01/2011

“I came to your seminar with zero knowledge of this subject and no experience of engaging a lawyer, and I really appreciate the way you have led me through this. You are highly knowledgeable, efficient and responsive. Thanks immensely for a job well done.”
– D.M. 12/01/2011
