Separation Agreement, Deed of Gift & Declaration of Trust
"My initial appointment was with Karen and from the start I found her empathetic and concise, which was invaluable during the difficult months. Tim Griffith dealt with the Deed of Gift and Declaration of Trust, on which his knowledge was extensive."

Child Arrangement Matters
“Karen was absolutely brilliant. She has assisted me in gaining a living order for my 3-year-old child. Karen was extremely supportive with her advice and was always very reliable. She was very knowledgeable in all of the proceedings and I will be forever grateful. I would definitely recommend Karen and Mayo Wynne Baxter.”
