“I honestly don’t know where to start, words cannot describe how thankful I am for all the help and support you have given me and my family over the past year. I was almost about to give up when my last phone call for help was to the Hume Riverina Community Legal Service. You guys made me feel like there was hope again and to keep fighting for what I wanted. What you do is more to me than just your job and I will be forever grateful for all you have done for me. I very much appreciate it and thank you again.”

“You’re unbiased – that’s the main thing. You listen to everyone’s point of view and don’t try to decide who is telling the truth. We understand that you have to stay neutral and keep us focused on achieving what is best for the child and you’ve done a wonderful job.”

“A wonderful service – thank you all. It made things so much easier and possible and gave me the time to gain my confidence to take the next step forward.”
