demonstrating a breadth of knowledge of family law issues and specialist knowledge in at least two areas of family law.

She comments: “As a Resolution member, I am committed to encouraging a non confrontational approach to resolving family disputes. That way, both the emotional and financial costs of divorce or family breakdown are minimised for those involved.”
“Now, by choosing a Resolution specialist, individuals can be assured that they are being advised by someone who has a wide knowledge and experience of family la
w and has the qualifications to demonstrate it.”
