“My experience with Louise and the O’Reilly Shaw Lawyers team has been nothing but amazing. Louise took the time to get to know me on a personal level, so I felt more relaxed and comfortable. We built a really good and trusting relationship. My parenting case was not straight forward. There were many things I needed to know and I didn’t know where to start. Having Louise backing me every step of the way, I was able to achieve what I needed and wanted.”
