About

Our Approach

We aim to resolve legal issues as swiftly and efficiently as possible. This is a difficult time for you and we are here to help you overcome some of life’s most challenging moments.

​Clients hire us to solve problems, not to create them. A lawyer’s role is to quickly identify and pursue objectives as cost effectively as possible.

​We consider rights, obligations and the likely evidence that could be offered at a trial. We then compare the other party’s position to determine whether reasonable terms can be agreed.

​This approach avoids initiating a court proceeding unnecessarily, based on realistic expectations from the beginning. Perhaps more importantly, it guards against wasted time and legal fees.​

​Often court is necessary to resolve disputes, but taking a reasonable position from the outset allows clients to gauge the position of the other party before incurring the expense of litigation.

​Our team aims to deliver excellent value to clients, in particular, by assigning aspects of each case to the person who can most cost efficiently carry out a task in accordance with the high standard of professionalism we expect of ourselves.

​If you require assistance in concluding matrimonial or common law issues, you have arrived at the right place and we invite your call or email.
