"I couldn't fault a single thing with your service, you have been amazing and I would recommend you to anyone.

Caroline Mackintosh offered an enormous amount of support, empathy and guidance during a very difficult time. Her ability to articulate and communicate my views was outstanding. She is clearly a committed professional who makes it her upmost priority to do what is best for her client and their family. It was so reassuring knowing I had her on my side and I will never be able to thank her enough.

Every word is true." - Vikki Wardlaw


“I have been a client with Macnabs, Perth, for around three years. It’s been a long slow process due to court orders, court hearings, a divorce and constant contact issues.  In that time, I have had Stuart Hunter, and then Caroline Mackintosh as my legal representatives. Stuart took over my case from another solicitor and fought fervently for my right to have legal aid – which I am very appreciative of. He was very able in court. He was supportive and assertive in equal measure.

Caroline took over my case and continues to work extremely hard on my behalf – and that of my children. She is smart as well as understanding, showing an empathy and insight much beyond her years. She has been a port in the storm for me; as well as a rock of legal knowledge. When we have encountered problems, Caroline has faced them head on – always with a good balance of legal practice and common sense. With a possible court appearance pending, I know that Caroline will do her utmost to get the best possible outcome for me and my children.” - Elaine Hunter


"I appointed Macnabs as my solicitors two years ago to help me with separation and an acrimonious divorce after being recommended by a friend to use them. They are a great firm and I have found Caroline Mackintosh, in particular, to be incredibly conscientious, warm and caring whilst offering sound, bespoke advice. I would not hesitate to recommend Macnabs to my friends and family." - Jackie Pennor


“Life became such that I required the assistance of a solicitor. I have been very fortunate and found much more in Caroline Macintosh. Caroline from the off has been outstanding. I have felt involved, listened too, guided and given the expert advice I needed every step of the way through what has been a very difficult and complex situation regarding my child's father."

"Caroline has taken the anxiety and stress out of my situation and without her expertise, professional approach and understanding, I do not know where we would be today. I have always found Caroline to be honest and direct with her guidance and always without exception, timely in her responses to me. Which I will forever be thankful.” - 
Collette Houston


“The work Ruth and Caroline have done for myself and my family is fantastic ,they were recommended by a family friend I am so glad I took that advice, they have helped me more than I thought possible, they have helped me through some extremely hard times for their help and advice I will always be thankful. I would recommend Macnabs to anyone that required legal assistance” - Ann Mcleod


“Having first met Caroline Mackintosh 15 months ago during a very stressful time I was quickly put at ease by her friendly, professional and empathetic way. Mrs Mackintosh continues to work on our case diligently and listens to all aspects put forward by me in our family law case. I am reassured by Mrs Mackintosh’s truthfulness and ability to make me understand the workings of the legal system and she provides me with real expectations. I first turned to Macnabs Law 5 years ago to put my Will together. The service was quick, easy and again professional. I have no hesitation in recommending both Mrs Mackintosh and Macnabs Law LLP.” - Kirsty Gowans


“I can't put into words just what Caroline at Macnabs has done for my family. I was reluctant to start proceedings to go for full custody of my son due to me being a father and very rarely hearing of men being granted full custody. After discussing my concerns with Caroline, she gave me the confidence I needed and I decided to start proceedings and go for it.

From the very first meeting, Caroline put me at ease, always willing to listen and help in any way she could.

I will forever be grateful to Caroline for what she has done for me and my son. I was granted full custody and all my dreams have come true, I have been able to be the full time father I always wanted to be. If you require a solicitor that will go that extra mile for you and care about what you are going through then I cannot recommend Caroline enough.” - Dean O’Byrne


“I would like to congratulate Macnabs law firm on their great customer service. I used Macnabs law firm to resolve my separation from my wife. I had the pleasure of working with Caroline (one of the solicitors at Macnabs) to solve the issue. Caroline was very polite and efficient dealing with a complicated separation. Unlike most solicitors, Caroline answered most of my phone calls and was always willing to help. Their prices are very reasonable as well. I had been looking for a good solicitor for a while and now I can say that I finally found my solicitor with Macnabs. I'm sure that I will be a client for many years to come. Good job Macnabs and Caroline.” - Bruno Madeuira
