"I am truly very thankful for your expert guidance and advice throughout this process. I have spoken to other women in my position who have not been as well guided. I credit my favourable outcome to your wisdom and plan of ‘attack’. I am very grateful."
"Thank you for everything, I do feel so much better about the whole situation. At the end of our first meeting I felt like I was in good hands.The BFLC team made me feel so relaxed and happy because you took the time to ask how I was going and it felt so warm and sincere. Everyone else who knows i am going through all of this avoids asking me 'how are you?' Like the plague. Cant wait to hear from you so I know it's one step closer again."
“I have worked through my divorce with Clarissa Rayward as my lawyer over the past 18 months. During this protracted and often frustrating process Clarissa has provided appropriate advice and tactics to move proceedings as fast as possible under the circumstances. A particular asset is her ability to call on support from financial analysts with particular strengths in the family law area so that the financial settlement is addressed in a way mutually beneficial to both parties, with consideration to the requirements of the law. She looks beyond the useless percentages so many lawyers are fixed on. My outcome could have been vastly worse for me and my ex-partner.”
“We feel very fortunate to have met with Clarissa. Initially we met with another firm and were told we probably had no legal leg to stand on. However, after consultation with Clarissa and explaining the legal path we wanted to travel, she found a way for us to continue. We have found her to be extremely professional and yet approachable and easy to communicate with. The court process can be frightening, but after talking it through with Clarissa you can feel relieved and get on with the important stuff. After two years working with her, we reached our ultimate goal and are very happy we took that second opinion.”
“I met Clarissa Rayward after separating from my former husband. I felt comfortable with her immediately and was reassured by her friendly, down-to-earth and compassionate manner. Clarissa guided me through a traumatic experience using considered and strategic advice, which I believe had been carefully tailored to suit my personality and my situation, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone seeking a professional, highly qualified and understanding Family Lawyer.”
“Clarissa was personally recommended to me by two completely unrelated people…..what I found most helpful was her honesty…..I didn’t want waffle or “buttering up”. I needed to know my best options and a course of action that would negotiate a speedy and equitable solution. I also liked the fact that Clarissa was pro-mediation. Needless paperwork was kept to a minimum – correspondence was concise so I didn’t feel I was paying for useless rhetoric.”
“Thankyou so much for all of your help with my property settlement. Your relaxed manner made the whole experience bearable and non-threatening yet you were very strong and determined when you needed to be. I was very happy both with your conduct of my file, and with the result.”
“It was indeed a fortuitous referral that my friend made when she suggested BFLC. You’ve restored my faith in the justice system… I just wanted to say thanks to the team for helping me to put an end to this…”
“Thank you for everything. I have loved working with you. I got great confidence from you… It’s nice to get to the other side still in one piece and look back and know that no relationships were damaged and probably not even bruised. That’s what I loved about you and the firm – it’s not just the dollar value of the property pool – you put such a high value on emotional wellbeing and being able to navigate the best way possible through the process and getting out the other side with everyone in good shape.”
“Where do I begin ? Thank you so much for my property settlement. You were certainly my strength when I didn’t have any. You are successful because of the passion you have, your ability to make those like myself believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel – for all this and more I thank you.”
“Thank you very much to BFLC for all your guidance and assistance through this process. I really appreciated your straight-forward advice. I sincerely hope we don’t have to meet again, but if ever I need advice again in the future, BFLC will be the first place I call.”
“At the conclusion of the first meeting my decision to appoint BFLC was an easy one. If the Collaborative process fits with how you want to achieve a settlement outcome, I would have no hesitation in recommending Clarissa and BFLC.”
