Linsey without you & your team on our side we may not have received the wonderful outcome that we have.

Linsey’s youth belies her strong organisational skills, eye for detail, steadiness, sensitivity to my mental health issues and overall capacity for support and understanding of my situation.

“Nobody wants to find themselves going through a legal ‘battle’, post separation. It’s draining, painful, lengthy, ridiculously expensive and to be avoided if at all possible. However, my super capable solicitor, Linsey Wilson, at Delaney Roberts Family Lawyers, helped guide me through about nine months of negotiation and some sometimes shocking behaviour from my ex and her lawyer.

She wasn’t fixated on going to court at all costs and helped guide me to a sensible solution, reached after just one day in front of the Newcastle family court registrar. That is what you pay for, in my opinion, and Delaney Roberts Family Lawyers got me through a difficult financial settlement and subsequent agreement over parenting orders with guile, intelligence and not a little kindness. Linsey helped me settle before the costs (financial and emotional) got even greater, so I’ll always be grateful for that. As will my two young daughters, with whom I can now concentrate on having happy times, 50% of the time.”

Matt Stoddart

Linsey Wilson and her team of experts at Delaney Roberts where exceptional in understanding my situation and implementing a strong fair case towards custody with my daughter.

“During the year it took to complete the final orders to be placed, Linsey went above and beyond countless times and acted immediately after our first consultation which resulted in me being able to see my daughter after 3 weeks of her being withheld. I wish that no parent will have to endure what myself & my daughter have had to go through, but with the help & guidance of Linsey this process was made with assurance for an end result. So again a great outcome for myself & my daughter all thanks bro the fantastic work of Linsey & her approachable team at Delany Roberts.”

Jason Pepper

Linsey was able to help me navigate this unknown territory resulting in a fair and reasonable outcome.

“My solicitor Linsey and the team at Delaney Roberts have been highly professional and supportive throughout my family law matter. Thanks again Team!”

Dereck Hail

Linsey took over our case and her services and knowledge that she bought to the case was hands down the best in the business.

“I’d just like to say a big big big thank you to Linsey Wilson. I couldn’t fault any of her advice and the way she works. With great rewards and a great outcome in our case we thank her from the bottom of our hearts. If anyone has any troubles in family matters I highly recommend u give her a call. Once again thank you to you and your team for all your great efforts.”

Jessica Radisich

When deciding who is the best person to represent you and put your families best interests first you can’t go past Linsey Wilson at Delaney Roberts Adamstown. From the day we walked in her office we knew we had the most professional lawyer to guide and direct us to a successful outcome.

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.”

Jessica Fenton

Love love love. Linsey has made my family law matter so easy to deal with. Accomplishing time with my son after 2.5years apart. Words can not express my gratitude.

Angela Shadur

Linsey was amazing to deal with for our family law matter.

“Very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions upfront with no run around like other lawyers have given us. Our consult was very long compared to what other lawyers offer for the same price. Feeling very at ease about working with her in the future.”

Emma & Jeffery Boslem

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.

“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.”
