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.
Emma was brilliant, made both situations stress free. Always keeping me up to date and giving valued advice. Easy to talk over issues that can and do become messy.
I have known Emma in a professional capacity for nearly 10 years. I have always found her to be efficient, knowledgeable in her areas of legal expertise and someone who works tirelessly on behalf of her clients. Emma is consistently methodical in her case preparation. She knows exactly what information is important and what is not. She has proven to have the ability and temperament to deal with sensitive situations, always remaining calm and positive. I have been confident to recommend Emma in the past and her experience, knowledge and charming personality make her a highly competent and popular family solicitor. Having worked with many solicitors over 25 years, I hold Emma van Bunnens in the highest regard. She is a true professional who I do not hesitate to recommend again and again.
