Kristie was kind and compassionate during a time I felt my most vulnerable. I would highly recommend Meillon and Bright to anyone looking for honest guidance and a firm that understands family.

I can not speak highly enough about the service Kristie has provided. Kristie was amazing at communicating with me, I felt my concerns were heard and she ensured that I understood each stage of the case. Kristie and her team outdid themselves and I felt confident that she wanted for my best interest and also those of my children.

Not even sure how to thank the team at Meillon & Bright for saving my life and the safety of my children. Divorce can be messy and sometime dangerous and Kristie and her team protected me and helped me achieve happiness and security in my family’s future.

I would recommend this team to anyone who is need of honest and caring family law professionals, they are all amazing.

Very thankful to Meillon & Bright and in particular to Matthew Kinder for helping my sister and I work through a very difficult & contentious separation from a former partner. What stood out to me was Matt’s focus on the wellbeing of the children, focusing on solid long term solutions and pragmatic advice. I found Matt to be an excellent listener, empathetic and outcome orientated. He was able to use his considerable experience to focus us on tangible results and effectively deescalate conflicts.

I wish I could give him & the team more than 5 stars.

Kristie and her amazing team are very efficient, professional and equipped with their line of work. After dealing with a previous lawyer for over 12 years in a family court matter and had a trial set up for 5 days i decided to change lawyers and had Kristie and her team represent me. Within 3 months and a 2 day trial it was all over with great results. No more nightmares and emotional stress for me after what i thought would never end. Many thanks to Kristie, Matthew, Elizabeth, Lauren and Eileen words cannot express to you all of how grateful i am to you all. Highly recommended!!!

I was highly impressed by Kristie Smith’s professionalism, as I was with all staff at Meillion & Bright. Kristie worked to get an efficient outcome, being mindful of containing costs. Kristie’s no nonsense approach, legal knowledge and experience, was just what I needed to reassure me, and to raise me above unproductive emotion. I have and will unreservedly recommend Meilion & Bright to anyone experiencing family law conflict.

I have recently engaged with M&B Lawyers and found them to be extremely professional, very responsive on email and phone, and surprisingly good value for money being lawyers and for their quality service. I would have no hesitation recommending M&B Legal to family, friends or anyone seeking legal assistance!

We came to Kristie with a very urgent need, at a challenging time in our family. To say that she went above and beyond the call of duty is a massive understatement as she helped us every step along the way with a balance of professional/legal advice and an understanding of the practical implications of this at a human and family level. I cannot thank Kristie and her team enough.

I would happily give 10 stars to Rebecca Hall having worked with her, and having her representation over the past couple of years in the Family Court. I am yet to fully digest that it’s actually all over, yet during the process I felt she fully grasped what I was experiencing and understood what was happening. She was able to provide excellent advice and support when I really needed it. She replied promptly, professionally and with excellent advice. She always understood the issues and supported me through the process. I will be endlessly appreciative for that. I will be sure to contact her if anything concerning arises in the future.

Five stars does not do justice to this firm or the people in it. Navigating a highly contentious matter (after engaging two other firms) seemed near impossible until Kristie and her team stepped in. Throughout the process their approach and communication was extremely professional, clear and kind. This resulted in a better than expected outcome for my family whilst maintaining my value set and priorities.

If I could give 6 stars I would, the staff are pro active, polite and understanding.( even when your an obsessive client). Rebecca Hall has an outstanding work ethic and fights for her clients no matter how difficult or complicated the case. She will explain to you what your doing wrong and works with you to create the best possible outcome. Rebecca and all the staff at Meillon and Bright you have changed my life and I appreciate all of your hard work. Thank you.

Thank you, Kristie, for your tireless work and energy into helping me deal with not only the legal side of a devastating situation, but also the emotional, maternal and child-centred aspects of this difficult time. Your holistic approach has helped me personally to come to terms with the reality of my life now, and how best to move forward. I will forever be grateful for your dedication to me and my children.

Family law proceedings are always stressful and often traumatic. During this precarious time, having a lawyer who is competent, ethical and trustworthy is absolutely essential. Kristie Smith at Meillon & Bright is all of these things. Kristie managed to achieve all of the orders we sought at a fraction of the cost expended by the other parties. Beyond this, Kristie was a rock to our family throughout half a decade of complex proceedings. Kristie understood what we were going through. Her commitment and dedication to advocating for a safe and just outcome for our children was exceptional.

Kristie helped our family so much. She helped keep us calm as we formulated a plan to ensure that our matters were dealt with in the best interests of our children. She was always patient and professional, whilst keeping us on track and keeping our costs down. Ultimately, with the help of Kristie, we were able to secure a good outcome for our children.
