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.
I can't thank you enough for your help, support and advice throughout my divorce proceedings. This was a very difficult time for me and my family, and your legal expertise was invaluable. I couldn't have got through this without you and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services.
Emma was extremely patient with my now ex-husband who was not responsive throughout. She was always constructive and complied with my wishes at every stage of the process – thank you Emma for your work – I would definitely recommend to others in my position.
