Our Practice

ATT: COVID-19 – implementation of lockdown measures

Our highly experienced team helps you deal with your legal battles in a professional and sympathetic manner.


We work as a team with our clients, ensuring that they are well informed so that they can give us clear, informed instructions. This helps our clients feel that they are in control of their matters.

Wills and Estates

We wind up estates efficiently and sensitively. We build a personal relationship with our clients so that they have peace of mind that they can trust us to carry out their final wishes and feel free to return periodically to keep their Wills updated.


As mediators we manage your negotiations in a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere, as opposed to litigation that can destroy the last remaining goodwill and respect and drain your finances.  You remain in control of your matters.

Collaborative Law

The collaborative process ensures that all parties work together on avoiding litigation and working out a negotiated settlement so that your private affairs and finances will never come out in the public domain.  Only once a settlement is reached, is the court involved.
