  • We have no hesitation in endorsing Clayton’s Family Law team.

    Outcomes for our clients have been excellent and the sensitive and mature way in which the firm has assisted us to resolve issues has been a feature of the relationship.

    Where small businesses involve two spouses working together re-configuring businesses after a marital breakdown can be extremely difficult. The team at CLW have the expertise and energy to work with industry experts like ourselves to achieve sensible and workable outcomes.

    The CLW organisation is stronger for the input of Eddie & Lisa. You are exceptional individuals and a formidable team.

    I thank you, and wish you every success in the future.”
