My clients are often distressed as even the most amicable relationship breakdown can be very emotional at times. I always aim to establish good relationships with clients, making sure they know I am there to help. I offer sympathy when it’s needed, while adopting a pragmatic approach in my advice. I believe that litigation should be the last resort in family disputes, and always encourage clients to keep a line of communication open, to try and resolve matters through amicable and cost-effective negotiation.
