What our clients say about us

“…[Helen] had an extensive and comprehensive understanding of family law, how it impacts the lives of her clients, and the desire to minimise the negative impacts on her clients, and children wherever possible.  She was and is honest, direct, responsive, personable, and efficient. The combination of all of these qualities makes her an exceptional family lawyer.”

– Judy, Roseville

“From the outset Helen listened and understood my situation, she cared about my distress and despair… Helen talked me through my options, what I needed to do to prevail, and the possible outcomes of the Court proceedings. I confided in Helen and placed my trust in her, although many times it was hard to see what she could see and trust in her judgement and advice… I’m infinitely grateful that I had Helen Ede and her team in my corner… I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to others facing family law difficulties, no matter how complex.

– Diane, Fairlight

She arranged the first appointment where I met both her and her assistant in person to discuss the strategy on how to approach my ex-husband and his lawyer to avoid an expensive escalation of the process. Throughout the following two years she helped me navigate the legal system which eventually led to a settlement through lawyer-assisted mediation. I was impressed by Helen’s personal approach, her professionalism, her availability when urgently needed, her impressive knowledge of the family court system and her transparency in all financial matters.

– Isabelle, Killarney Heights

“I couldn’t imagine going through my experience in the Federal Circuit Court with anyone other than Ede Family Law and dealing directly with the personal care and attention of principal Helen Ede.  Helen’s legal knowledge and personal care was at all times exceptional. Any matter was always dealt with in a prompt and timely manner. 

Helen’s guidance and advice was very calming and she stood as an assuring presence during very difficult and lengthy court proceedings. Ede Family Law exceeded all my expectations. I can’t thank Helen and her team enough for the care, work and time. I’m so grateful and would have no hesitation recommending the services of Ede Family Law to anyone in need of an excellent family law specialist.”

– Vince, Annandale
