Welcome to Delaney Roberts
Our people are our greatest and most valuable asset.
We strive to provide the highest quality service and client experience. We are continuously improving.
We firmly believe that a Lawyer’s role is to help people identify causes of potential legal problems before they arise, not just to find the best solution once the problem has manifested.
If you can’t rely on your Lawyer to help you identify legal risks and foreseeable problems who can you rely on?
Care and attention to detail can never be overstated. It is our responsibility to consider and advise our clients of relevant implications in a worst case scenario.
Our culture is vibrant. We are willing to change or try something new if there is a better way.
We deliver when we say we will deliver, keep our clients informed and return calls promptly.
We honour the tenets of our profession and acknowledge the impact of our actions on those we come into contact with and the greater community. We respectfully uphold our ethical duties at all times.
Our Linsey Wilson & Fiona Johnson are Accredited Specialists in Family Law.
What is an Accredited Specialist?
In the legal profession, Accredited Specialists are practising Solicitors who have demonstrated proficiency in a particular area of law, which is recognised and conferred by fellow Solicitors.
Specialist Accreditation is a structured peer to peer assessment process enabling legal practitioners to be recognised for their expertise. To be accredited specialists must pass a series of meticulous assessments on both legal knowledge and its application in practice. To retain their accreditation specialists must undertake significant additional professional development in their area of expertise each year.
Specialist Accreditation helps Solicitors distinguish themselves from other practitioners. It is a nationally recognised mark of distinction run by state based Solicitor Associations. In New South Wales the Specialist Accreditation Scheme has been operated by the Law Society of NSW since 1992.
Why use an Accredited Specialist?
To gain Specialist Accreditation a Solicitor must pass rigorous assessments in communication, problem solving, client relations and, of course, the law.
To maintain accredited status, a Solicitor must annually renew a certificate to practice the law and membership of the Law Society, plus update his or her skills and knowledge at the specialist level.
Watching you do your thing, was awe inspiring.
“First of all, I want to thank you for the amazing support and guidance you gave me yesterday. Watching you do your thing, was awe inspiring. You have given me so much confidence in getting what I and my son truly deserve. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
We would not hestitate to use you again in the future.
“It is with great respect and gratitude that we write this Google referral for Delaney Roberts, Specialist Family Lawyers at Adamstown, Newcastle, and in particular Linsey Wilson – Senior Associate Solicitor.
Earlier this year we had the need for a family law specialist solicitor for a complicated matter. We had never had any experience in family law matters previously and as we are living in the UK and required an Australian solicitor to represent us locally in Newcastle it was a daunting and overwhelming process to face.
We approached several firms who were not willing to take our case and then we were recommended to Delaney Roberts. All staff we encountered were friendly and responsive and willing to listen to the particulars of our matter.
After initially corresponding with Samantha Miller, we were appointed to Linsey Wilson who had the most experience and expertise to represent our specific matter. From the onset we were very impressed with the seamless manner in which Linsey was able to put us at ease and have full confidence in her abilities and skill as a lawyer. Linsey really made a difference in our case with her personal and caring approach to our matter. At all times we had full trust in Linsey's commitment to gaining the outcome we were seeking.
Communication between the time zones was not a problem, Linsey tailored appointments at convenient times to us on a variety of forums, including video meetings, emails, and phone calls. Linsey was outstanding in her coordination of communication with two other solicitors who were involved locally in our matter and a UK solicitor. It was so reassuring to be secure in the knowledge that our solicitor had everything at hand – no need for us to chase.
To say we were satisfied with Linsey's strategic approach to our matter, her organisation, preparation and how Linsey conducted herself in the court proceedings is an understatement. We could not be happier with the successful outcome of our court matter and believe we would not have had the same outcome with another lawyer or firm.
Many who spoke with us during our process voiced that they would not like to be in our lawyers shoes and that it was unlikely that the court would rule in our favour. Perhaps if those who voiced these opinions had the pleasure to have a lawyer such as Linsey Wilson of Delaney Roberts Specialist Family Lawyers represent them they would experience the wonderful feeling we have when everything comes together and ensures that the system really works.
Thank you once again to Linsey Wilson and Delaney Roberts Specialist Family Lawyers, we would not hesitate to use you again in the future if the need arises and would highly recommend your services to anyone.”
We've both been extremely happy with her professional yet friendly service.
“Linda Hackney came recommended to us by a close friend. After meeting with Linda and choosing her to represent us in our family law court case, we’ve both been extremely happy with her professional yet friendly service and although our court case is still ongoing we recently had the blessing of a very positive experience when our case went before a Judge for the first time. We can not thank Linda enough for the outcome on the day and we look forward to continuing to work with her as our case continues before the courts.”
I recommend Jade Coshaw and Delaney Roberts to anyone I know that requires Family Law representation.
“Following the breakdown of my marriage I was recommended to Delany Roberts (previously Roberts Legal), so made an initial appointment with the principle Mrs. Anna Roberts.
Anna made an initial assessment of my situation and introduced me to Jade enabling her to act on my behalf. From the outset Jade has acted with the most sound judgment and unfaltering responsibility towards my case and this combined with her extensive knowledge of Family Law meant she was able to fully explain the different options available to me, providing both the pros and cons of each option, in an attempt to bring the matter to conclusion resulting in a solution that provides the best possible outcome for all those involved, most importantly my children.
Jade has kept me constantly informed throughout the proceedings, even contacting me out of her normal working hours on occasion, ensuring I was never in any doubt as to the progress of my matter.
In summary of Jade’s actions, she has been compassionate, understanding, patient and honest with me. She has been my advisor and confidant. Fighting my legal battles for me, shouldering all the stress and shielded me from harm. She has taken my peculiar circumstances and directed them in such a way, that the outcome can only be described as superior. All attributes that will ensure I will recommend Jade Coshaw’s name and the legal firm of Delany Roberts to anybody I know that find themselves in a similar situation where they require family law representation.
I see Jade as a true advocate and carer of those who are in need and believe her kindness will be rewarded. .”
Anna always took my calls or returned my messages promptly.
“Anna Roberts was a pleasure to deal with. She always took my calls or returned my messages promptly when she was not available”
Anna made me feel like I was in control.
“Anna talked me through to procedures required, organized all the paperwork involved and made me feel like I was in control. She knew exactly what had to be done and kept in touch through the entire process. I found her to be very understanding and professional during this rather difficult time in my life”.
You’ve been outstanding in terms of your professionalism and responsiveness.
“I wanted to pass on a huge thanks from Renee and I for the advice and help you both gave us on our sale and purchase transactions. We’re looking forward to the start of a fantastic next chapter for the Sommer family in the house. You’ve both been outstanding in terms of your professionalism and responsiveness. We’re extremely happy we came to Delaney Roberts Family Lawyers and were able to work with you both. Please ensure you pass this note and our thanks on to the practice owners.”

Rebecca and the Team at Delaney Roberts Family Lawyers have been very professional, considerate, dedicate, directly contactable and above all very prompt with providing the necessary and vital legal advice when I needed it most.

I will highly recommend Rebecca Wosman and Delaney Roberts Family Lawyers to my friends and family if a need arises in future.

A massive thank you for your support with the purchase of our new house. The Delaney Roberts Family Lawyers team has been brilliant to deal with once again and has made a fairly complicated process from overseas much easier.
Your advice was great! I’m disappointed my past family court lawyer and the past criminal solicitor did not think of this course of action over the previous month or so!
