Our experience with Kaye McKenzie was excellent. We found her to be professional yet friendly and down to earth. Kaye made a very stressful time for us as easy as possible and helped us to achieve our desired outcome. We would highly recommend Kaye as a family lawyer to anyone.

Kaye McKenzie represented me in a Family Law case, which was handed to her by another firm. She was very quick to get up to speed on the issues and history of the case and achieved a very rapid result and agreed settlement on my behalf (within two weeks). Kaye was extremely efficient, understanding and empathetic in all my dealings with her and she will be the first person I will turn to should I ever need legal assistance in the future.
