Emma van Bunnens
Emma is a family law solicitor specialising in divorce, finances and cases involving children. After completing her training contract at Allen Ticehurst Solicitors in 2004, Emma remained with the firm when it merged with Mayo Wynne Baxter.
With the sensitivity needed to handle difficult situations, Emma resolves disputes over contact arrangements and living arrangements for children and deals with all issues involving children. Emma is a member of resolution and resolves disputes within divorce and ancillary relief (financial) proceedings in a fair and efficient way, again handling such matters in a sensitive manner.
Unlike most family lawyers, Emma does much of her own advocacy in court so clients are represented by an expert who fully understands their situation instead of relying on a separate barrister.
A Law graduate of Sussex University, Emma completed her Legal Practice Course at Guildford Law School in 2002.
Outside work Emma spends most of her time with her young family and loves horse-riding when she gets the chance.
Emma is very keen to offer clients fixed fees in respect of much of her work.
The level of service was always very professional. She made me feel at ease and confident to have her representing me. She explained things I did not always understand.
I felt that Emma gave just the right level of professionalism and empathy/support during my dealings with her.
