Collective Family Lawyers have helped me through a terrible time in my life. They are ALWAYS there when you need them, weather for a quick bit of advice or something more pressing. I’ve dealt with Caralee, and she replies pretty much straight away when needed. I was dreading having to deal with this sort of thing, though Caralee has made it bearable. I could not recommend them highly enough. Thank you guys, for what you have done for me thus far!!!!!


I can not rate the team at Collective Family Law high enough. For a person who was in the situation going through a divorce I was in I could not thank them enough for the outcome they helped us achieve. I would highly recommend them to anybody who is in need of legal help for family matters no matter how stressful it can be this team will get you through to the end.


At what was such a traumatic time in my life, was made easier with the guidance from Caralee and the team at Collectivel Family Law. I cannot say enough about the professionalism and service they provided me at a time when I could barely think for myself due to the breakdown of my marriage.I would not hesitate to recommend this team to anyone seeking help for their family law matters.


An incredible firm with caring and highly skilled lawyers. I thoroughly recommend Caralee and her amazing team.


Collective Family Lawyers assisted me recently in settling an estate and property division after I separated from my wife. The team at Collective Family Law Gold Coast were exceptionally compassionate and fought fiercely for fairness in the settlement. They were extremely efficient and kept me calm and informed with consistent communication. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in a similar situation 🙏


The ladies of Collective Family Lawyers are such treasures. Caralee has been so kind and compassionate during a time that is quite stressful for me. She has guided me every step of way and has made this whole experience that little bit less daunting. I’d highly recommend Jill and her colleagues to anyone who is seeking help with Family Law on the Gold Coast.  Thank you team for your ongoing abundance of kindness and care!


I would like to comment on the the quality of services provided in my experience at Collcetive Family Lawyers. The staff are always so friendly and helpful, and very efficient. This has really helped me to relax and feel comfortable during not so comforting times.


Caralee and the team at Collective Family Lawyers were professional to deal with and always put my mind at ease while I was going through such a stressful and trying time in my life. They took the time to explain things clearly to me which I appreciated as I have never had anything to do with lawyers in my entire life. I would happily recommend her and Collective Family Lawyers to anyone in need of help with their Family Law matter.


I can not speak highly enough of Collective Family Lawyers. The professionalism show by their team was second to none, I was in such a tight predicament with the added pressure of time not being on my side.
They were efficient and effective in achieving my desired result. I cannot thank you all enough.


Great team of people who provide excellent advice. Prompt replies to my emails and reassurance when it was needed. Highly recommended!


The staff at Collective Family Law were so wonderful to deal with. Thank you so much for making this experience so much easier and quicker than I ever thought it would be. I was so stressed and worried and you were prompt, polite and wonderful to deal with. Thank you!


An especially friendly family law company with excellent family lawyers and very helpful and supportive reception/clerical staff, as well. The family lawyers have to deal with an awful lot of negativity and stress on a daily basis and always remain very helpful and friendly. Thank you.


Caralee Fontenele is just amazing! My law matter is very complicated as it involves overseas orders. Every solicitor I consulted told me it was too complicated, Collective Family Lawyers tackled the matter with no fear. She is fierce and goes above and beyond.  I felt like she really cares about my family, words cannot express the gratitude I have towards her.. She is just simply amazing!


Caralee and the family law team has been helping me settle an ongoing separation dispute. Caralee and the team have been extremely compassionate, understanding and helpful throughout the ordeal and i highly recommend Collective Family Lawyers to anyone else going through a similar situation.


The Collective Family Law team have gone above and beyond for me and it is so refreshing to see how supportive and genuine they are to their clients, would recommend to anyone and everyone going through family law matters.

Thankyou team!


Caralee and the team at Collective Family Lawyers are simply great to work with. I was hesitant at first being a male, dealing with an all female solicitor team. From my first appointment, I left knowing that yes, this was a team of professionals who know what it takes to get a positive result. They work with their clients to reach a great outcome and the end of the day, they know their stuff. I actually ended up better off, then I thought I would! Thank you Rebecca and Caralee. Cheers


I have always found the staff at Collective Family Lawyers Gold Coast very helpful with all my dealings with them this year. Highly recommend.

I would highly recommend Collective Lawyers for Family Law matter as they are friendly, caring, compassionate and extremely professional.


Very easy to talk to, friendly and compassionate during hard times, thank you


Having used a different lawyer for my marriage separation I wanted a fresh start when I required further help on family matters. The team at Collective Family Laweyrs are very warming and the process was very quick and easy. I hope never to need them again, but will definitely return if required. Highly recommended


A wonderful team to deal with at a very difficult time. From the receptionist to Principal Caralee, eveyone has a very caring & professional manner & my lawyer has been exceptional. Calls / emails are returned in a timely manner & in their office, you feel completely at ease. I would recommend highly for anyone needing a Gold Coast family lawyer.


Collective Family lawyers are amazing. From my first conversation, I knew I was in good hands. My family lawyer helped me the whole way through my divorce and property settlement, I really couldn’t have got through it with out her.  I would highly recommend Collective Family Lawyers to anyone. A+ great communication the whole way through. Jill is an absolute lifesaver. Thanks, heaps guys.


Well…not exactly sure where to start but being 55 and never requiring a lawyer let alone a family lawyer was a bit daunting to say the least. I did feel comfortable when I first walked into their office and liked the professional attitude. Being from a different country, I soon learned a lot about, “the law” and legal terminology. A lot of clarification was required on my behalf to understand the process(s) and the best form of action to take. Keeping calm is not one of my best attributes, but understanding and having issues explained, though sometimes frustrating, made it easier to sleep on those nights.


I spent days & hours researching information & talking to family dispute & law professionals but nothing brought clarity or progress to my seemingly chaotic situation. The initial consultation with CollectiveFamily Lawyers changed everything. From that day forward all I’ve experienced is positive results & a peace of mind thanks to the expertise & professionalism of Collective Family Lawyers. You all have truly made a difference in my life & I’m extremely appreciative!


Collective Family Lawyers Gold Coast came highly recommended by our neighbour and I’m so glad I went with them! They have been so professional and sympathetic to my situation. Would use them again in the future and recommend to friends and family.


Without the guidance,support and expertise of Caralee the team at Collective Family Law I would not be where I am today . I can’t imagine going through this terrible stressful time without them on my side. Their professionalism, knowledge and genuine desire to help me achieve the best outcome has taken so much pressure off me, which In turn has enabled me to concentrate on supporting my little girl through this really tough time. Their advice, knowledge and work is ALWAYS spot on.


They made the Fear Disappear!
Collective Family Lawyers ,helped me regain my certainty about my future and help me on the right path ,I now have a clear idea of my future pathway. Polite, efficient and highly knowledgeable people,helped me resolve a problem almost immediately and helped me deal with setting up my property settlement case. Highly recommended.


Right from the start I have always had fantastic and professional service from the team at Collective Family Lawyers. They certainly have helped me make this difficult process into a much easier knowledgeable process. Thank you!


From my initial consult with Caralee I felt I was in great hands and was well informed, making me feel very comfortable, which was awesome when going through such a difficult time and event.

I mainly worked with Danielle Karlos, who was always friendly and professional, explaining things clearly about my matter in ways easy to understand. She Always discussed my options and was considerate to what was best for the kids and I, for our individual situation.

We were able to resolve my case in a quick time frame, which helped reduce stress and ongoing financial burden.


Though I would rather not be needing the services of any family law firm, I am a repeat client of Collective Family Lawyers as I trust in Caralee  and know she is in the profession to help people, not to feed her ego or maximise her income. Thanks Caralee, I appreciate your work 🙂


Collective Family Lawyers were extremely professional and accommodating in dealing with my matter in a timely and painless manor. Highly recommend the team.


Right from the onset of discussions with both Caralee I have experienced a calm, competent and compassionate direction with every step of my family law proceedings. My ex has been extremely difficult to deal with, having control issues, he has been involving people that should not be involved and not caring who he crushes along the way. If you are in a difficult situation and need an experienced team, I highly recommend that you contact Caralee and the team without delay. I also have to say that the admin in the front office were also amazing, as are the whole team at Collective Family Law.


Many people believe engaging with lawyers would be an overwhelmingly frightening experience, I know, as I was one of those people. I have never had to engage with lawyers before and was quite nervous I would struggle to understand the process. My inital consultation with Caralee not only eased my stess, but simplified the process in a way I would understand and more importantly, gave me the confidence to fight for my rights. The team continues to support me and are there to answer any questions I may have and valuable the details surrounding my situation. I know I am in good hands and have total trust in their advice, work ethic and abilities. Thank you for your amazing support.


The questions that I have ask, have been clearly answered & quickly. I feel at ease when dealing with Collective Family Lawyers.


I felt very comfortable at my first meeting with Collective Family Lawyers. The new Southport offices are in a great location with easy parking, and the spaces are calm and tranquil. I felt empowered by high quality advice provided upfront by Caralee, and I left feeling relieved with a clear action plan to move forward. The whole team were empathetic and kind, and I am so grateful for that initial advice which gave me clarity and hope. I was very fortunate to have Danielle assigned to my matter, Danielle did a remarkable job and gave exceptional advice. Danielle’s responsiveness, creativity, persistence, quick and forward-thinking, efficiency and timeliness amazed me! It is very clear this firm operates as a well organised team, as I was also very well supported by Aarti, who was very organised, friendly and gave great advice. I am so lucky my matter resolved easily within the space of a few weeks, all thanks to this amazing team! I highly recommend Collective Family Lawyers to anyone who finds themselves unexpectedly needing family lawyers. Thanks Collective Family Lawyers for the exceptional service!


Collective Family Lawyers have not only given me the right family law advise, they have been understanding and shown empathy during a difficult time. I would highly recommend them to any person needing family matters resolved.


Collective Family lawyers are a very professional firm they have been fighting beside me for almost three year and now have my children back with me about 70% of the time a really big thank you to TL who made this happen.


I had to visit a solicitor for a Family Law matter recently and thank goodness I was referred to Collective Family Lawyer … Not only they were in my local area of Bundall – but as Family Law specialists – they were amazing – the principal, Caralee Fontenele listened to me and totally understood my issues – I was stressed before I went in for my consultation but by the time I left I knew all my options and have now a plan in place that I know will have a great outcome. If anyone needs a Family Law specialist, then call Collecitve Family Lawyers – they are excellent!!!!
