From day one dealing with solicitor Ilinke Naude, I felt very comfortable and was quietly very impressed with the way Luke Shanahan’s Team do business. It left me confident in all advice I received in my custody and access matter. Ilinke is a true professional who goes above and beyond to ensure every possible eventuality is covered. After a very successful Mediation with Ilinke there every step of the way, I was able achieve all of my goals, I am convinced that if Ilinke hadn’t been with me, the result may not have been the same. Not only were Shanahan Family Law able to help me sort my matter without having to step foot in the Court, they understood that not everyone has large sums of money sitting around to pay legal fees and they worked with me on several occasions to get a mutually beneficial arrangement in place. I highly recommend Luke Shanahan’s Family Law Team and particularly Ilinke to anyone who finds themselves in a similar Family Law situation that I did. Thank you again Shanahan’s and Ilinke - Love your work!

Thank you Shanahan family law for your expert legal advice!
