I highly recommend Chelsea from Meillon & Bright Legal. She is very good at her job, fast replies & very good communication.

I applied for a relocation order and we didn’t end up in trial, she managed to negotiate with the OP and got me relocation with my kids.

I have had other lawyers, but none that compare to her. She’s the best. Even if you don’t live in Perth, she is available through emails & calls.

A bit of a rushed appointment, although reasons were provided. Outcome was effective. Kristie is well versed in family matters.

Very satisfied with Kristie and the team at Meillon & Bright legal. It is not an easy road when as parents want the best for your children. Having Kristie represent myself was very professional , well organised and very well communicated.

I would highly recommend anyone in need of help or assistance on advice in family law matters.

Once again thank you Kristie and team.

I cannot speak highly enough of Matthew Kinder and all the team at Meillon and Bright.

Matthew is a remarkable family lawyer - pragmatic, solutions-driven, an exceptional communicator and deeply empathetic. His strategic thinking and methodical approach secured a fantastic outcome for me in what was a difficult and protracted property settlement matter.

I am especially grateful for Matthew's unwavering kindness and patience over the past year and a half. Matthew recognised the emotional and financial control and manipulation I was subjected to; helping me to navigate the extreme anxiety it induced, to stand strong and stay focused on the end goal.

Kristie Smith, Chelsea Bech and Elizabeth Warr also had involvement in my case. I found them all to be approachable, compassionate and fierce advocates. Elizabeth Game at reception is a consummate professional. She was always polite, understanding and quick to respond to any queries or requests.

Thank you so much Matt and all the Meillon and Bright team for helping me to regain control of my life and for setting me in good stead for my future!

Matthew Kinder was thorough and professional in all aspects of the legal representation he recently provided me for a Family Law matter.

Matt was an excellent communicator, always prompt with responding, and always helpful whether on the phone, via email or face-to-face. He paid great attention to detail in all documentation and written correspondence. Matt displayed flawless knowledge of the relevant legislation and court procedures. He was consistent with his high level of service and attention to detail from the first phone call until the finalisation of the matter.

Thank you very much, Matt!

5 Stars doesn't even begin to cover the experience I had with Matt and the team at Meillon & Bright.

Through the hardest year of my life thus far, Matt dealt with my constant worry and answered my questions as though I was part of his own family. He eased my mind every step of the way, promptly responding and always giving brilliant advice.

I appreciate everything you have done for me, and would recommend you to anyone in need.
Thank you again for absolutely everything. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ms Chelsea Bech, Associate at Meillon & Bright Legal and the whole team that represented me were extremely professional, highly knowledgeable and attentive.

They were competently able to reach an agreement to end my journey in the Family Court as quickly as possible and without the need for litigation. I highly recommend Meillon & Bright Family Lawyers, North Fremantle.

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.

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!

I can not express just how very grateful I am for everything that Kristie and her team has done for my family. It has been a long 2 years for us all but we’re finally back to living a normal life and looking forward to the future.

Thank you so much for everything, we really couldn’t of gotten here without you.

12 Aug 2020  Google Graham B

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.

26 May 2020  Google Brent C

Kristie is and has been absolutely amazing during this stressful time. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Absolutely recommend.

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.

21 Feb 2020  Google Shauna B

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.

02 Apr 2018  Email M.L

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.
