I cannot thank Juliana, Reighan, Sharon and Donna enough for the care, compassion, empathy, understanding and professionalism they have given me over the last 2 years during the hardest time in my life. Through the whole process of a messy break up, divorce proceedings, property and financial hearings and parenting matters, the team at JS law have always kept me informed, gone above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly and their communication was outstanding to the point of even checking up with me on weekends just to see if everything was OK. I truly felt like part of the family. All this while still keeping my daughters best interest at heart. This team will always hold a special place for me as they navigated a very sensitive time with absolute warmth. I would recommend this team and their affiliates to anyone going through this challenging time.


JS Law was the only practise in the region who responded quickly and professionally to my initial contact. Most didn't respond at all. I instantly knew I was in the hands of professionals - to my relief.


JS Law was astonishingly successful in court, with thorough research, intelligent probing and - to my delight - a big sense of humour. I felt morally supported in a trying situation. My partner and I not only heard empathy, we felt it. JS Law's professionalism even extended to helpful after-service, which is rare these days. Their solicitors clearly care.


The Principal and Staff at JS Law are experienced and worked as a team, with compassion and tenacity, to achieve an outstanding result.


Throughout the emotionally challenging period between separation and settlement I have been comforted in the knowledge that my legal team have acted with the utmost integrity and always with my best interests uppermost in any decisions or advice. Thank you.


Knowing the way forward is not your job but it is your obligation to this commitment for the most important part of your life; your child or children. Faith in your counsel is imperative and fundamental to resting your past and moving to brighter happier times in the next wonderful chapter. I cannot express in regard highly enough to the absolute professionalism and care whilst Ms Juliana Smith Barrister and Solicitor and her team made my journey to great life change peace and safety with my daughter possible. More than just a law firm, JS Law is a safe place for heart and mind so that client families may find their way.


I approached JS Law in 2014/15 because I needed assistance with a Family Law matter. JS Law 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 JS Law with great understanding and compassion I would recommend JS Law 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.


I was extremely happy with my service from Juliana Smith and her team. They were so compassionate and I felt I was provided with quality advice and service. I would recommend them to anyone.
