David Sherman - Family Law Barrister Experience | Confidence | Communication

divorceIt’s likely you’re reading this message because your marriage or relationship has broken down. Your entire world has changed. I understand that. I understand how difficult all of this is for you.


There are complex issues to deal with. How will you parent? Where will you live? How will you survive financially? What about the family debt? What about your pension? How will this impact your business, your job? What about your new partner? What happens if you die? How do you move on? How much is all of this going to cost?


You need to make informed decisions. You have a right to fully participate in deciding what is best for you and your family. Being reasonable is essential. Knowing what is reasonable is critical. I will answer your questions. I will resolve your issues. I have been answering those questions, advising what is reasonable and achieving successful resolutions for others just like you for more than thirty years.


Agreement is always the best resolution. Sometimes agreement is almost within reach. Sometimes agreement is justnot possible. If a reasonable agreement can be had without going to court I will achieve that for you. If it cannot, then I will ensure that your application to the court or your response to the application of your spouse will end in the very best result possible for you. That is what I do. That is what I have been doing for more than thirty years.
