I have been a Family Lawyer for 25 years and an accredited specialist in family law for over 20 years. I thought I knew a lot about family law, but it wasn’t until I had children and then went through a separation myself, that I really understood what my clients were going through.
The constant anxiety that you will lose everything, and the uncertainty of your future and that of your children, is an overwhelming feeling to say the least. Then on top of all that, you’re worried you won’t be able to afford a lawyer.
All of these factors have influenced the way I practice and the ethos of my firm – resolving a family law matter for a client should not cost them their life savings, and can and should be resolved within a reasonable time frame. Ultimately, the best outcome for us is a file that doesn’t hang around accruing extra costs and is resolved in a timely manner (as much as we like all of our clients, we know you don’t want to be with us longer than necessary!)
Here at Collier Family Law, we aim to ease financial burden by allowing clients to pay in instalments instead of one lump sum payment. On top of this, we are always mindful of our client’s budget and are always on the hunt to reduce client costs wherever we can. We truly believe that everyone should be given the option to afford quality legal representation.
Another cost effective and fast-moving way of resolving matters is Mediation. I am an Accredited Family Law Mediator and Arbitrator and can offer this service as an alternative.
So, that pretty much sums us up. Now, a little bit about you.
