Legal intervention in family matters is often unavoidable, and rarely comfortable. In this difficult area, our sensitivity and professionalism encourages resolution quickly and efficiently. Our approach prioritises the diffusion or avoidance of dispute at all times and is focused on preservation of the relationships in question. We will always explore the possibility of resolution through mediation rather than through the courts.
