We understand that the breakdown of a relationship can be one of the most stressful and difficult times of your life, so it is extremely important to have the right people supporting you through it.
We have an Accredited Specialist in Family Law, Ath Balaskas.
She will care for you if you are caught up in a family crisis. Where necessary, she will engage in rigorous and passionate representation of you in the challenging context of your family law dispute.

Shared assets, such as a business or other property, are often contentious elements in any Family Law settlement and need to be carefully considered. That’s why it is important to have experts in Family Law, Commercial Law and Property Law on your side.
