I have been a long standing client with Clare for 5 years and can honestly say that she is an amazing lawyer who has got my little family through one of the hardest times in our lives and we are now living our best lives thanks to all Clare’s hard work. I cannot thank her enough. Cannot recommend her enough!

From my first meeting with Clare I knew I had found the right person for me at a very difficult time.

My family law/property settlement was in safe hands with Delaney Roberts Family Lawyers. Clare was incredibly supportive and understanding. Her legal advice and explanation of legal terms helped me achieve the best outcome in my situation. I will be forever grateful for the assistance and kindness of Clare and her beautiful support staff. Please consider Clare if you find yourself in the position of needing family law advice.

“I have had Clare assist with a family law matter. As a lawyer of a different specialty, it took a lot for me to invest financially in specialist services while in a difficult financial situation. I am very happy I chose to seek Clare’s advice instead of trying to navigate it on my own. Clare is astute, a clear communicator, and absolutely wonderful to deal with. Our appointments were on time, booked easily, and the staff are lovely. I would highly recommend to anyone seeking a good basis of advice in a difficult time. Thank you to the team for their help.”

I have no hesitation in recommending Delaney Roberts and their excellent services. I dealt with Clare McAteer and found that she made complex issues easy to understand.

Kellie Payne

There is no limit to the care they show for their clients and to get an email out of business hours to me just shows that they care, just because the lights are turned off in the office doesn’t mean they stop thinking about you!

“I have been dealing with Delaney Roberts for a few months now and I could not be happier with the way they conduct business and the service they provide.
I have had dealings with Clare McAteer and Linsey Wilson and I must say that they are both amazing women and are fantastic in the jobs they do.
Considering the matter that I have enlisted their services, they have never made feel like I was just another case number. Instead I am a person and I matter. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Delaney Roberts. Keep up the great work.”

Clare’s knowledge is unrivalled, her bubbly personality reassured me from the start.

“It’s with a heavy heart I wrote this review because it means my journey with Clare and Bianca is over. I met the girls during a very difficult time in my life and they were the light helping me navigate through. Bianca was always available to answer any question no matter how random or silly it was. This dynamic duo are the people you want in your corner, they go above and beyond and surpassed my wildest expectations. I hope I never have to use their service again but if I do they’ll be the first people I call on. I love you girls so much, you’re become part of my tribe and you laugh at my jokes what more could someone ask for.”
