Farming, family and divorce
Debra Emery | 23.10.2019
I am a highly experienced partner and head of the firm’s family law team specialising in high value divorce cases, particularly where there are unusual or complicated assets.
My clients are typically professionals, company directors, owner managers, army or navy officers and ex-pats. They want clarity and the reassurance of knowing that their interests will be protected.
I provide clear, robust advice that helps my clients make the right pragmatic decisions to enable them to get through the divorce process.
I know that this process can be unfamiliar and upsetting for many. With more than 25 years’ experience, I confidently help clients towards an outcome that is right for them.
Debra is efficient, strong, kind, fair, supportive, thorough and knowledgeable. She has a good team of professionals to pull in when their expertise is needed.
