Family law is a complex and emotional arena for a client. Jennifer's approach to managing my case was personal, respectful and she kept me informed every step of the way which lead to a great outcome.
Jevena P. Client
I have no hesitation in recommending Jennifer to any prospective client. She has a personal approach, very trustworthy and reliable. Her work is of a very high standard and detailed. I was very pleased with the work she completed for me.
David A. Client
I cannot express how grateful I am to have had Hetherington Legal assist me with family law matters. I wanted to keep my matter out of court and as amicable as possible, but also wanted a lawyer who could be firm when necessary. Jennifer did an amazing job and with the utmost professionalism. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Jennifer Hetherington at Hetherington Legal gave great representation during a very stressful time for me. She was careful with funds, acted responsibly and in my best interests. She followed my instructions to the letter and gave great advice. I highly recommend her and her legal team.

E K Referrer
My case has been lengthy and complicated. Jennifer and her colleagues treated my family with respect and I felt that she made a personal investment in helping me in every way that she could with empathy and energy. I was particularly impressed that Jennifer actively researched additional information to assist my case and was willing to take a stand against injustice
Elle L Client
I have worked with a number of lawyers and it isn’t often one comes across a person who ‘stands out from the crowd’, someone who strives to make a difference in what they do and to others she comes into contact with. Jennifer aspires to excellence in all that she does, she is a master of the above characteristics and brings value to her clients and fulfilment to her work.
Helen Russo Certified Financial Planner - Encompass Wealth
Jennifer was able to prevent a lengthy expensive case which was settled due to her negotiation skills and knowledge. The case was closed quickly and efficiently on the day out of court. I recommend Jennifer to those wishing a positive outcome.
Matt R Client
I had thought of representing myself in court. Jennifer saw my paperwork and simply, and kindly, said 'OK, let's look at what you've got'. She fixed what I'd done (OK, she re-did it), and had it to a point where I could just submit my paperwork. My ex-husband took one look at the paperwork and his new wife said "You can't fight this", and he signed off on it. No more arguing. I couldn't have been happier with her help and advice. It was amazing. Thanks for helping me avoid court, Jennifer. I'll be eternally grateful!
Jennifer is a much learned, confident and experienced solicitor that works well with her clients.
Jason F. Client
Jennifer is always extremely professional and has given us detailed knowledge of the family law. This has helped us on more than one occasion. It is very comforting to know that Jennifer is only an email away for any questions we may have. I have and will continue to recommend Jennifer to any of my clients or work colleagues
Lindy Spillman National Account Manager - Sample and Partners
I have known Jennifer on a business level for over 15 years. Since Jennifer has operated her own practice, I have referred many of my clients for assistance with her firm’s services. The matters dealt with have been complicated financial settlements, divorces, child recovery orders and custody matters. The feedback has been extremely positive. Clients have commented on Jennifer and her staff’s professionalism, compassion, integrity, knowledge of family law and all relating matters. My belief is Hetherington Family Law are leaders and innovators in their field of expertise and the only firm I would recommend now after dealing with several other offices in the past, with less than impressive results and feedback.

Jennifer first worked with me several years ago. She is as energetic, passionate, strategic, clever, skilful, supportive and humorous (and I am sure a sense of humour is critical in family law) now as when I first worked with her. Over the years I have referred many friends and contacts to her for assistance with family law matters. All of those people continue to thank me for what they regard as a positive experience in what was otherwise a very challenging time for them. And that is why I will continue to refer people to Jennifer
Stephen Hughes Principal, Franklin Athanasellis Cullen Lawyers
As a trusted adviser for my clients who rely on me for referrals to other professionals, it is imperative that any person who I work with in my network possess the qualities that consisently deliver exemplary service, expertise and profesionalism. After working with Jennifer on a number of mutual clients over the last 3 years, Jennifer has proven to be a highly competent family lawyer, with excellent relationship skills, a strong communicator with a determined commitment to achieving client centric outcomes. I highly recommend Jennifer as a family lawyer
