Client Testimonial

"I want to thank BBS for their legal work in freeing my daughter and I from a life of domestic violence.

Originally I was working with a law firm that didn’t understand the difficulty when dealing with a domestic violence partner in a family law situation.

It was not till I started working with Della Brinsley from BBS that I found someone who could offer me clear guidance, with care but not emotion, to handle the quagmire of Family Court and offer advice on handling an ex partner who did all he could to exacerbate the situation. Her understanding of the dynamics involved allowed me to work through the system with the minimum of stress – and within my budget. This allowed me to achieve the best outcome for my daughter and I. The entire team at BBS were always there with a friendly voice and smile which was appreciated more than they will ever know."
