Nicole Evans acted in both my children and property matters and I cannot thank Sam Lewis and Nicole Evans enough for supporting and guiding me through what was a very difficult period in my life. Sam and Nicole were always very professional, responsive and reassuring throughout the entire process and achieved an excellent outcome for my son and I. Highly recommend to anyone who may need help with their family law matter.

I was fortunate to have chosen Nicole Evans to act for me during a difficult criminal + family law situation. Nicole and her team were highly professional, empathetic and caring throughout what was a very stressful few years. At each and every step I was given informed advice grounded in an impressive understanding of each legal issue I was facing. I highly recommend Nicole and Karen to anybody needing assistance in family and criminal law matters, regardless of the complexity of the matter.

Nicole and her team were such an amazing support during such a difficult chapter in my life (and I tried a few other supposed family lawyers who didn't know what they were doing). My ex was trying to string the proceedings out just to bully me into submission. Nicole really stood up for me and gave me a voice. This wasn't easy given that my ex had hired apparently the most expensive law firm in Sydney. Nicole was able to match it with the big guns and get an excellent result for me and my kids!!!
