I would thoroughly recommend using CSL Law. Mr Lawrance was very understanding to my personal circumstances during the divorce process and provided extremely good advice and support. He acted in a prompt manner and always gave a range of options backed up with the benefits and consequences for each course of action. He always responded in a timely manner and put my mind at ease. Mr Lawrance was also very personable and clearly worked with a great deal of integrity
