"Hugely impressed by Joanne Major’s drive, vision, and meticulous attention to detail"

I’ve always been hugely impressed by Joanne Major’s drive, vision, and meticulous attention to detail. I’m not surprised, therefore, that Joanne and her dedicated team of lawyers and support staff have rapidly gained recognition as one of the most forward-looking, innovative, client-focussed family practices in the country.

James Richardson

District Judge

"A wealth of collaborative experience"

Joanne Major has a wealth of collaborative experience. Her delivery is strong and confident with a no nonsense approach that I came to trust. This is invaluable when clarity and action is required. Major Family Law were highly recommended to me and I would have no hesitation to pass that recommendation on.

Christine Nugent

Managing Director, Business Travel

"Both knowledgeable and approachable family lawyers"

We are happy to endorse the services provided by Joanne Major and the team at Major Family Law, Ponteland. We have a number of mutual clients who speak very highly of them. They are both knowledgeable and approachable family lawyers who are clearly client focussed.

Andrew Morgan

Partner, Nicholson & Morgan

"Family lawyer of high calibre and drive"

Having worked with Joanne Major at a large commercial firm some years ago, I am aware she is a family lawyer of high calibre and drive. During a short period of time she has put together an excellent team of intelligent, approachable lawyers who deliver first rate family law services to clients. We as a firm are happy to recommend them.

Paul McGowan

Principal Solicitor, Collingwood Legal

"We can trust them to understand what is at stake"

Joanne Major and her team are the “Go To” for any clients or contacts who come to us asking if we know any good family lawyers. We can trust them to understand what is at stake and treat each client as an individual, taking time to listen, explain & advise as we would do when faced with commercial legal issues.
