My thanks to you is not so much about the services you offer, which was exactly what I needed, but more how you...treated me. You made me feel heard and understood. You treated me with compassion and empathy. And you empowered me to fight another day. In a broken system, which doesn't shine a bright light on the legal fraternity, you are most certainly the exception to the rule! Thank you.

Margaret, NSW, 2020

Mine was an unusual case - I was married to someone who was already married. Maree was amazing. She went the extra mile to help me get all the information we needed, including from overseas. When I finally went to court, the judge said we’d done everything we had to and produced professional and amazing documents.  I won the case. Maree was there for me at every step.

Maria, Tempe, 2019

Maree is a logical, patient and extremely empathetic solicitor. She worked against the clock to prepare my documentation, presenting my complicated story in the best possible light. It is hard to be satisfied with any other family lawyer after you've worked with her.

Mia, Lewisham, 2019

Maree’s knowledge and advice for me were second to none. She knew exactly what was needed without me having to ask. Her approach to dealing with my legal problems were only matched with her empathy for my health condition. It was truly a pleasure working with her.

Anthony, NSW, 2019

Dr Maree Livermore is an outstanding advocate for the vulnerable and disadvantaged. Highly recommended.
