Monicka is an associate in our Family team specialising in private law cases involving children, financial disputes within divorce and separation proceedings. She joined Royds Withy King in June 2014.

Over the last 18 months plus, Monicka has been nothing short of fantastic in the way she handled the proceedings. The handling was very professional and the way Monicka has dealt with both has taken a weight off my shoulders in what has both been a very difficult time in my life, thus making it as stress free as possible. I would highly recommend Monicka for what she has done for myself personally and can’t thank her enough.

When dealing with such sensitive matters I try to ensure that I have a sympathetic, yet practical approach to achieve the best outcome for everyone, but most importantly the children involved. I believe in building good relationships with clients and communicating the law in simple, plain English to make the process as clear as possible.
