Testimonials

Jane - Brisbane

This has been such a great experience for us to work with you and Chris. Y our flexibility, honesty and advice helped us in reaching such a positive outcome for our family and for my daughter.

I have already recommended C&K to a friend who is looking for some advice and would not hesitate to recommend you again.

I really appreciate the flexibility with fees as well and Chris being willing to use some pre-prepared documentation to help with keeping costs down. Honestly, I know that you have saved us many many thousands of dollars by being so flexible, and yet you have still managed to get the outcome we were looking for! Chris’s recommendation with Pamela was also brilliant and she certainly was a great help in getting things finalised.

Thomas - Brisbane

I would wholeheartedly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a professional, empathetic and outcomes focused family lawyer. It was both refreshing and pleasing to work with a senior family lawyer whose sole focus wasn’t driven by an adversarial approach.

From my experience, it was clear that the client is at the heart of everything that Chris does. Chris was able to impart a sense of urgency and technical proficiency but through a calm and well measured approach.

Importantly, Chris has the unique ability to cut through all the legal process, jargon and framework. This ensured that I was well informed of my options and understood the potential ramifications and likely outcomes.

If you are looking for impartial and practical advice, Chris is the family lawyer for you.

Michelle - Brisbane

As a recent satisfied client of Christopher Jones, I would highly recommend his professional services to anyone seeking a knowledgeable, compassionate and dedicated senior lawyer. Christopher gives a high level of personal service and provides professional and accurate advice whilst being considerate of his client and their personal situation. Christopher is pro active and able to achieve results and has a high attention to detail with each of his clients. Christopher explains, often complex legal terms, in an easy to understand manner whilst also being highly proficient at legal communications at a high level. I am more than satisfied with the services I have received from Christopher and would not hesitate in recommending his professional services.

Christian - Brisbane

I wanted to take this time to write to you to express my gratitude for the way you have assisted me recently.

To the average person, like me, the intricacies involved in Family Law can be and has in the past been a daunting, confusing, and somewhat of a stressful experience, and culminating with an unsatisfactory outcome.

Firstly, thank you for initially helping me to understand the process including explaining positive and negative aspects of decisions and proceedings; thank you for your empathy in your approach to assessing my side of the situation, and, for the value you placed on my opinions, my thoughts and for working positively with me towards the goals that I expressed were key to achieving the successful outcome we did.

Mutual and effective communication is an important ingredient to a positive outcome like this and I was always impressed with how quickly your communication was effected in keeping me up to date on progress, and, how quickly my communication was returned.

I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and with the final version of court orders, and, very satisfied with the services you personally provided working with me, and for me, in achieving this outcome.

I would have no hesitation at all in contacting you again should I require your services, and, in recommending your services to others as I already have.

Simone - Brisbane

Chris was invaluable in helping me through a difficult time in my family law matters. Chris showed empathy and was also fair when it came to charges. Chris walked me through the process and made it easy. Chris answered my questions, no matter how trivial (even on the weekend or at night), and took time out of his day to get back to me if I had any concerns.

Chris really wants the best outcome for his clients and also seems to not want anyone to be hurt in the process. I feel Chris has the child’s best interest at heart when it came to my family matters. There should be more lawyers like him out there.
