In April 2017 my life as I knew it was completely turned upside. An interstate friend gave me Marie Hayter’s name. I will be forever grateful that I called Marie.

Not only did she speak to me about my case for the first time literally days before Christmas, I instantly felt at ease with her professionalism and knowledge.

I meet with Marie and Catherine Fairlie a few weeks later in Andreyev Lawyers Adelaide office. I brought with me a full folder of documentation prepared by my previous representation. This did not deter Marie (or Catherine). They simply took it all in their stride and proposed a plan in our very first meeting of what to do moving forward. For the first time in a long time I felt optimistic about what might lie ahead.

The next 11 months would see these two remarkable women represent me through court hearings, correspondence and negotiation via the phone and email. Not only did I have esteemed representation, they made me feel at ease and informed me every step of the way of this long and draining process. Even when I thought things look bleak, they were solid as a rock and confident in moving forward. Every question I had was answered. Any concern I had quickly disappeared with such efficiency and expertise regarding parenting and property. No matter what I knew they had my back.

Just when I thought Marie and Catherine could do no more, the sign of final orders were thrown into turmoil. Marie and Catherine were phenomenal. They reprioritised their work and private lives to assist me. There are no words to express my absolute gratitude towards Marie and Catherine. They are both fantastic, intelligent, caring and remarkable lawyers.

The outcome was more than I could have ever hoped. My thanks to Marie, Catherine and Andreyev Lawyers.
