    What our clients say

    • 5 star review  I've spent over two years working hand in hand with Debra and her team on my personal matter. Through difficult and, at times, emotional circumstances, Debra has remained easy to engage with, providing clear and thorough advice from her wealth of experience. I came to enjoy working with her and knew throughout that she understood my situation and respected my position. Her input was always aimed at getting the best results for me. As a solicitor who is professional, knowledgeable, caring and understanding, with a mediator's approach to getting the best results, I could not recommend Debra and her team enough.

      5 star review  Debra and her team of lawyers not only responded with sound advice in a timely manner but went above and beyond to make sure I felt nurtured and safe during my court proceedings. I would highly recommend her to anyone going through a legal proceeding.

      5 star review  Family court is a daunting experience. Four years later, every day I am grateful that I stepped through Catherine’s door. Her understanding got me through the worst time of my life and her determination kept me sane. Her professionalism is outstanding and I can full heartily recommend Catherine as a lawyer for any situation.

    • 5 star review  I had Catherine Coles as my lawyer in a family matter that was very complex. She was professional and helpful in my case. I was able to reflect deeply on my situation and make hard but logical decisions. I am grateful for her service and highly recommend her.

      5 star review  Debra was my rock during a difficult time in my life. Shae was compassionate, patient, assertive and respectful even when we didn't always agree on everything. Her advice was always analytical, pragmatic and apt for my specific circumstances. I could not have asked for a better team to be in my corner when I was overwhelmed.

    • 5 star review  Debra Parker is an exceptional family lawyer. I cannot praise her highly enough! From the moment I met her she worked very hard on my family law matter, from representing me in court right through to mediation to then getting me the absolute best parenting and financial settlement court orders. Debra was extremely professional, empathic, no-nonsense, fast, meticulous with her attention to legal detail and made me feel protected, calm and in the absolute safest hands. I cannot recommend her highly enough!! Her team also - Monica and Jacquelyn are also extremely capable lawyers who make the whole team an absolute pleasure to have dealt with. If I could give more than 5 stars I absolutely would. Thank you!

      5 star review  I went to Debra Parker when I was at my lowest most frightening point at the start of my separation and custody battle. Debra got the ball rolling immediately. She was really easy to communicate with, and I almost felt like I was taken under a wing. She is an excellent communicator and was fast in responding, which when you go through such a challenging time is of high importance. When I watched her represent me in court, her presentation was very professional and her communication is empowering. With her by my side I never felt concerned or confused. I always walked away confidently and calm. At the end of my journey with her, I left with strength and a new look on life, and I cannot thank her enough. I highly recommend Debra Parker.

      5 star review  I was recommended Jacqueline Curtis by my regular legal representatives after being embroiled as a grandparent in a messy separation with my daughter and her ex husband. Jacqui provided me with expert advice and helped point me in the right direction to initiate contact with my grandangels again whilst being with their father. Her empathy, advice and understanding was just what I needed both to set my mind at ease and to establish contact again. I highly recommend Jacqui and the clerical staff for all their support shown to me! I wouldn't hesitate to contact them at any time if I need help/support again! Highly professional, knowledgeable and highly recommended if you need that type of care/advice during a distressing time.

    What our clients say

    I was shocked to discover that Jacqui was a single mother, especially at a time when I was coming to terms with being one and thought it was a terrible thing. Understanding that single mothers could also have good co-parenting outcomes and be absolutely winning at life really helped me re-set my assumptions of what my life might be like after divorce. Jacqui not only helped me win my freedom, she helped me see that I was strong enough to go it alone. Choosing her was the best move I could have made.

    I need to find the means by which to thank you Debra. So over a week ago I was reeling mentally and physically and wondering how to deal with all that I had on my plate. Had no idea where to turn to except that in a moment of luck (divine luck no doubt) I came across your name . And that led me to where I am today, in contact with, and being advised by wonderful lawyers. I am deeply indebted to you.

    Catherine is exceptionally well organised. She made me feel at ease when things were touch and go and reeled in win after win in my case. She was ever at the ready to make the wrongs right again.

    I can't recommend Parker Coles Curtis highly enough. The team masterfully managed the simultaneous settlements of the properties we sold and bought. Organising the simultaneous settlement proved to be a bit of a nightmare for PCC given all the parties involved but they ensured everything was completed successfully on time. Most of our dealings were with the ever-attentive Lela, whose easy-going yet professional manner made her a pleasure to work with and took the stress out of the situation for us. Thanks very much PCC!

    Jacqui has such a friendly demeanour and understood my concerns. She listened and gave me advice tailored to my circumstances. I have a high-conflict ex and Jacqui’s advice helped me achieve a positive outcome that is in everyone’s best interests. I have young children and Jacqui was so flexible with her appointment time and understanding the realities of being a working single parent.

    The Loungeroom Lawyer concept was so convenient for me - a time-poor, working single Mum. I loved the fact that I could meet with a lawyer in the comfort of my own home (in a tracksuit) and get the information and support I needed. Jacquelyn then represented me in a family court case and helped me navigate the complexities of FVO's. I felt supported, safe and extremely well represented. I highly recommend Jacquelyn at Parker Coles Curtis, I will forever be grateful for her support.

    Jacquelyn shared sound advice that helped me navigate a family violence situation and supported me in a seemingly impossible relocation case. It was the opposite advice to others I had contacted. Those first steps were imperative to my successful outcome. I now have a very bright future for my children and I, but it could have been very different in someone else’s hands.
