Trustee

With over 30 years of experience in contested family cases, Meryl is a highly experienced lawyer and believes professional mediation offers families a positive alternative to a contested court hearing.

Part of a team of expert Family Lawyers at Fenners Barristers Chambers offering a legal advice and advocacy service, Meryl has over 30 years of experience in contested family cases about difficulties arising in family life.

Meryl believes that a contested court hearing about a family should be the last resort as professional mediation offers families a positive alternative to protracted litigation.

Giving families the opportunity to take control of their lives, Meryl believes mediation helps families to resolve their difficulties themselves rather than asking the court to make decisions about their lives.

She writes: "By engaging in professional mediation, families are assisted to make sensible arrangements for their future in a cost-effective way."
