We would like to express our sincere and heartfelt appreciation and gratitude for the highly professional and competent services, provided in both a friendly and accessible manner. We had a long standing highly stressful case, Snedden Hall & Gallop Lawyers Family Law Team, took on our case, after being passed around and little success from other firms.
They were professional at all times, and empathetic to our family when it was needed. We felt comfortable and supported at all times, Jonathan and Jane went above and beyond to ensure nothing was left unturned, after a lot of long sleepless nights I’m sure, we got the outcome that we had hoped for.

Thank you again for everything, although he will be there and we need to keep a eye on things closely with the kids, this is a much better outcome then what could’ve been.

I found Jonathan to be very professional and knowledgeable about specifics relating to family law, where other law firms couldn’t provide me the details I required.
