Practice areas

  • Family and Divorce

Rebecca works with individuals and families to resolve family law disputes in a constructive way.

The breakdown of a relationship can be a difficult time for all involved. Rebecca actively seeks to resolve matters in a non-confrontational manner, considering the needs of the whole family and what is in the children's best interests.

Rebecca is particularly interested in alternative forms of dispute resolution and avoiding court proceedings where this is appropriate and in her client’s best interests.

Rebecca also has significant experience of litigation at the Central Family Court and High Court, should court intervention prove necessary.
