I strive to be approachable and compassionate as I understand going through a divorce can be very difficult and tough to process. I support clients to the best of my abilities, keeping them informed throughout their case and ensuring each process is explained concisely and in plain English.”

  • Attending Court hearings to assist the client and Counsel

She enjoys being able to assist the members of the family team to make sure everything is done accurately and in a timely manner, to ensure all client expectations are met and they achieve the result they desire.
