    What our clients say

    • 5 star review  I was first connected to Jacquelyn Curtis through a Loungeroom Lawyer session where she not only answered my questions and concerns but made me confident in taking my matter further. Jacquelyn was professional, supportive and encouraging. 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.

      5 star review  I came to Parker Coles Curtis after a successful case under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction abroad. Having worked with world experts on that matter abroad, I was looking for true experts and professionals in the field of Australian family law matters at home. To date all my expectations have been more than met. Working with the whole team, and especially Monic and Debra, is a real class experience. Everyone is top notch with outstanding law knowledge, professional knowledge, and a witty human touch. I am in the perfect hands for my rather complex family matters. On top of it all Debra is very well connect and can bring in other experts, e.g. migration, to marry different law matters. Overall I really enjoy working with everyone at Parker Coles Curtis and feel I invested in the right top notch people. You are at the right address here if you are looking for the best in the game with outstanding standards and professionalism. Addition after Final Court Orders and 599 days after it all started. I could not speak more highly of this team and especially Debra and Monica. At the end we settled to our terms and I can see my kid grow up with both parents in Australia. The service all throughout was outstanding during very challenging times and hardship. The team is clearly world class. I thank the whole team for significantly improving all our lives and I am super glad we came here. Because of this team we are able to call today the first day of the rest of our lives. This all comes with the best possible outcome. THANK YOU ALL FOREVER!

      5 star review  Jacquelyn and the Parker Coles Curtis Team from the outset made entering the Family Law system endurable. Jacquelyn always provided me with objective counsel, and nothing was too much trouble to explain or review. Jacquelyn is a very professional family law lawyer and was always available for all kinds of questions. She dealt with my matter impeccably under challenging circumstances. She was honest and transparent in her advice and ultimately got the right outcome for my family. Jacquelyn has excellent communication skills and a great personality, coupled with her outstanding legal knowledge. I have since used Jacquelyn to represent my family in a formal adoption process in the Family Court.

      5 star review  I can't speak highly enough of Debra, her fellow directors and her staff. I commenced my family law matter as a client of one of Canberra's top 3 law firms. I was very unhappy with the direction things seemed to be taking and how much I was being charged. Debra was unavailable the first time I came into the office of Parker Coles Curtis, hence i spoke to Jacquie Curtis. Jacquie is lovely, very empathetic and took the time to listen to my issues over a cup of coffee. This made me feel like they really care about their clients. On the day of my first court appearance Debra wasn't available, however I was very professionally represented by Catherine Coles, who put me at ease from the start of my proceedings. In one court appearance Debra won the day for me, helping me achieve greater time with my son, despite my ex being represented by an experienced family lawyer and barrister. My case has now been resolved with Debra helping me to achieve what will soon be equal time with my son and a fair result at property settlement. In what was the most stressful period of my life Debra has helped me to be able to start over and enjoy my life again. For those considering going for a lower cost more junior lawyer or a higher cost lawyer of similar experience in one of the top law firms, based on my experience with Debra I have found her and her team to have a wealth of knowledge and be much more efficient than other lawyers, therefore she is also the best value for money option.

      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  Debra is a great listener, empathetic and friendly. Very supportive, accessible and encouraging through the most challenging stages of the matter. Her legal acumen and strategic direction, supported by an exceptional team come to the fore when the whips are cracking. The team continues to communicate and work hard to full resolution of all aspects of your matter. Very thorough, always follow through and highly professional - far in excess of other experiences I and others have had with other firms. I thank them and thoroughly recommend Parker Coles Curtis.

      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 cannot recommend Jacquelyn and Cameron highly enough! I reached out to Jacquelyn a few years ago after hearing her on a podcast speaking about co-operative co-parenting . It has been the best decision I have made. Jacquelyn and Cameron were direct and clear about each of my next steps which meant I was confident too. They were always a phone call away and gave me real perspective when things felt like it was all too much. Thank you team!

    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.

    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 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!

    I’d like to thank you for all your help and amazing service you provided to me, could not find a (sic) better lawyer even if I wanted to. Thanks for everything.
