It was always a privilege to act for people from all walks of life in respect to what was for many, the most difficult personal and financial time in their life.

I’ve learned over the years that an advisor in divorce law must listen carefully as every client has different concerns, priorities and expectations.

I view my role as a family lawyer as transforming an emotional and difficult time into one that is manageable by removing the stress of the unknown following the breakdown of a relationship and offering sensible, pragmatic and commercial solutions.

I chose to practise in this area because, in my view, it is one of the most critical areas of law.

What keeps me working in family law is the opportunity to help people with the problems that are most important to them by providing clear, practical advice and solutions.
I see my role as giving my clients the insight, knowledge and representation they need to be able to work efficiently towards the best outcomes for them and their families.

Family law disputes are particularly worrying for clients and will often involve the only or the most important legal issues they will ever face. A decent family lawyer should bear this is mind and also not enflame what is already likely to be a hotbed of emotion and stress.
Each case is unique and there are no one-size-for-all solutions. A family lawyer should be a good listener, to be able to identify the uniqueness in each case. Separation is hard, it is impossible to win in all aspects. A good family lawyer should consider all facts and help clients to explore a win-win solution.
