Rob Hollis started working for me in the midst of a difficult divorce dispute at short notice in 2016.  I could not have picked a better solicitor to deal with both parenting and property matters. I have found Mr Hollis to be thoroughly familiar with the law, would not let himself get distracted from the main aspects and his performance at mediation was beyond my expectations.

Our deepest thanks Rob for your incredible assistance and total professionalism throughout a very traumatic separation and parenting agreement process. Your approachable manner, empathy, and in particular your genuine concern was amazing. Through the frustrations and high emotions, you displayed incredible patience, while reminding us of our own values – doing what was right and good, regardless of a hostile opposing party. You were open to our ideas as well as being forthcoming with your own, making for a great feeling of teamwork and togetherness in this process. Well done, and on behalf of the children involved, our heartfelt thanks.

Thank you so much Rob for your ‘gentle’ and calming advice on my rather delicate situation.   The outcome was simply the best I could have hoped for and will help me move on, mentally healthier.   I must commend you and your staff on the handling of my very sensitive situation.  A hard time, made easier.  Sincerely Holly


I’m incredibly grateful to Rob Hollis who has been extremely diligent and thoughtful in guiding me through what has been a difficult and drawn out custody proceeding. I always felt that he was acting in my best interests and leading me towards making the right decisions that have eventually led to both a successful outcome and a reduction in ongoing friction with my former partner. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Rob and, again, thanks so much for your help.

John K

I would like to thank Rob Hollis for his recent advice regarding my son’s extremely difficult and hostile custody situation. I found Rob to be concise and very knowledgeable in providing me with practical advice regarding family court procedures. This enabled me to give my son the information that would allow him to be confident in resolving custody issues in the best interests of his children. Based on this initial advice to me, my son contacted Rob personally. He was so impressed with Rob’s approachable manner, empathy and genuine concern, he has decided to engage Rob as his solicitor. Thank you again Rob for giving my son a more positive outlook and an opportunity to move forward.
