Solicitor Family Law
“Understanding the law and the legal system are vital aspects of being a lawyer in any jurisdiction, but in Family Law it’s equally as important to have a close and specific understanding of the client and their needs. As Family Law practitioners, we frequently find ourselves assisting clients during the most vulnerable and traumatic period of their life, which requires us to show a great deal of empathy, compassion, and sensitivity to each client’s unique circumstances. I find practicing family law to be very rewarding, and am passionate in my representation and desire to help Burke & Mead’s family law clients through what can sometimes be a complex and difficult process.
