I recently engaged the services of Justin from Watts McCray Lawyers. I needed a lawyer who was compassionate to my situation, along with someone who would act quickly and with my best interest at heart. My matter wasn’t of high monetary value, rather an issue being disputed on moral and ethical grounds. Justin took the time to understand not only the claim itself but also factors surrounding it. Justin took the time to look at all avenues available and explained the potential risks involved vs the outcome. Most, if not all, other lawyers would have recommended that I settle the dispute due to the small cost of the dispute itself. Justin had no hesitation in taking on my matter, however still remained diligent with considering ongoing costs. Not only was Justin responsive to my situation, he believed in my case and went above and beyond to ensure the best outcome possible. Justin, Bernadette, Sonja and the rest of the team were pro-active, knowledgeable, eager for a good outcome and understanding of the emotional demand that Family Law often attracts. I genuinely believe that Justin is passionate about fighting injustices and will always go the extra mile to deliver a good outcome for his client. While I hope to never need another Family Lawyer, I wouldn’t ever hesitate to recommend them for anyone in a family law dispute.

Josh Randall was my lawyer who represented me in the local court. He gave excellent legal advice, returned all my calls and emails. I could not have asked for a more professional lawyer.

I used Watts McCray for a family law matter. Their service was excellent and the Partner who handled the matter (Jackie Vincent) was first rate. She asked for clear instructions and gave really helpful and compassionate guidance. I have already privately recommended this firm to others.

Michelle, I just wanted to say thank you for everything. I couldn’t have got this far without your support and genuine investment in my case. I would have given up a long time ago.

Getting divorced opened up emotions and vulnerability well beyond what I first imagined. I found the staff at Watts McCray incredibly supportive and guided me through the process and helped me to achieve a relatively good outcome considering. Beth Agar in-particular was excellent when I needed it most with her ever reliable and professional approach. Thank you.
