Our Clients

"I approached JSlaw in 2014/15 because I needed assistance with a Family Law matter. JSlaw helped me by negotiating on my behalf and then representing me in Federal Court. The result was that court understood the issue completely. One thing I liked was their efficiency to communicate with me, everything was explained to me in great detail. I found the experience while very emotional and stressful was handled by JSlaw with great understanding and compassion I would recommend JSlaw to people who need assistance with Family Law matters in the future. I found them to be very professional and highly efficient at their job."

Juliana Smith and her team. They were so

quality advice and service. I would recommend
them to anyone."


Gisborne, May 2013

"Juliana took on a case a lot of solicitors wouldn't
have. Juliana listens, gives honest advice and got a
good result."


Bendigo, May 2013


My firm is not about
how many clients I can
represent or how big I
can build the practice,
but rather how I can best
represent each client.
