ABOUT FIRM


Fawzia is passionate about Family Law, with a special focus on divorce law. In many divorce matters, it often happens that a case simply has to be taken to trial in order to be properly concluded, however there are just as many instances when negotiations with the "other side", or even mediation may yield the better result. We strive to explore all options available to our client, and ensure that the client has a good understanding of his/her legal position so that he or she can make an informed decision. We are mindful of the huge emotional and financial toll a divorce makes in the life of a person and strive to make that process as painless as we possibly can.
