Portrait of Paula Rhone-Adrien

Practice Profile:
I advise on all aspects of family law, but specialise in Ancillary Relief (Divorce and settling the financial arrangements) and parents/family members who are in disagreement over how a child should live their life or where a child should live. My years at the Bar are clear evidence of my strong track record for customer satisfaction and that I have earned the respect of Judges.

I work hard to ensure all clients receive the same professional service and the benefit of advice that is based on 18 years of experience. My clients are impressed by my in-depth understanding of their needs, up to the minute knowledge of the law and my sensitive approach to discrete matters.

The consequences of the breakdown of a relationship are often highly emotive and require a special set of skills, both professional and personal. Because of my breadth of experience (18 years) I have the knowledge to advise on the financial aspects of a relationship breakdown (which can involve complicated tax and trusts issues) and complex children cases, including international relocation.
