We love what we do.

Read some of the kind feedback we've received over the years - 

I am so grateful to Lois Clifford and her team. I was treated with empathy, honesty and integrity every step of the way. I felt completely supported throughout this harrowing life event and that I wasn’t just ‘another’ client. - Kath Simpson

You are the first professional person I spoke with about my family matter in over 20 years. I have appreciated your legal advice. - Angela 

I'm writing to express my appreciation for the professionalism and competence I received from Dobinson Davey Clifford Simpson over many months earlier this year in a complex family law matter. In particular I would like to acknowledge to the Society Ms Julie Dobinson whose legal skills and considered counsel saved me and my ex wife, considerable anguish and exposure. The skills of Ms Dobinson enabled a fair and very cost effective outcome for all concerned. This is reflected in the compliment paid by the Federal Magistrate. - Chris 

Clear communication without jargon. A friendly atmosphere across all staff levels. Acknowledgement that avoiding large legal costs is awesome. - Quentin 

I always felt well supported by you and continue to feel grateful for that. - Heidi

Good clear communication. Thank you so much for all your assistance. Very professional and everything was clearly communicated, well done. - Christopher 

I was kept informed at all times with lots of sensitivity and consideration. I've enjoyed working with people who demonstrate professionalism, humour and respect, no offence but I hope we don't have to meet again at least in the legal environment. - Cathryn 

Thanks for all you help; you have made this process somewhat bearable. - David

My lawyer understood what I was trying to achieve and helped me regain focus during times when emotion clouded my judgment. I was extremely happy with how my case was handled. - Rebecca

At a very difficult time, I was treated with respect and kept well informed. On my hearing date, Julie was FABULOUS and I felt very confident with her ability. - Alison

Julie provided me with targeted, strategic advice that was adapted to my level of understanding of legal processes. I walked away from our meeting feeling equipped to make informed decisions about property, child support and parenting, and to negotiate confidently. I feel like DDCS provided real value for money, focusing on the issues that were of the greatest significance to me

We both felt that the service we received was very professional and well informed. - Alex & Samantha

My matter was dealt with in a most professional and friendly manner.  I was given clear explanations, courtesy, the lawyers were always on time for my appointments and they were always able to listen to me and interpret my requests to put into a legal framework. Thanks for your help, guidance and understanding. - Howard

I liked the clarity of explanations and prompt handling of my matter. I found your website very helpful; it contains excellent information about DDCS and the services you provide. - Bernadette

I found Di Simpson impressive and all the staff to be "on the ball", compassionate, kind and well-mannered. A pleasant change. I liked the fact that the lawyers I had contact with treated me with a respectful, non-judgmental attitude. - Karina

I found DDCS professional and accepted my accelerated timeline for which I am most appreciative.  I had such an excellent experience I cannot think of anything to suggest you change in the way you deal with future cases.  Simply, thank you for the excellent service! - Paul

All – Just a quick note to express my thanks for your patience, indulgence and perseverance on my behalf.

To Dear Lois, I have counted my blessings every day to have had you to stand by me for the past six years.
