Why Marguerite is different from other Lawyers
Marguerite’s work in separation is always out of court. She believes deeply in the power of interest-based negotiation and focusing on the future. Her approach is about doing what is necessary to build optimism out of the pain of separation.
Please know that Marguerite works in a collaborative centre, MELCA, and regularly collaborates with practitioners in counselling/psychology, child psychology, financial planning, careers independence, separation support and divorce recovery.
She sees it as part of her role to make her clients aware of the availability of the skills of these professionals within or beside mediation, and about alternative ways of reaching agreements if mediation is not the right fit.
