I am a family lawyer with over thirty years experience in litigation . I am regularly appointed as a child welfare reporter , adoption curator and reporting officer and I also regularly act as curator ad litem to children in contentious family law matters . I am very interested in alternatives to litigation as I appreciate many clients find court a very stressful experience . I am accredited as a Family Law Mediator . I aim to offer advice in a straightforward manner and I am committed to finding the best solution to the issues faced by my clients .
