Victoria also works on a wide range of cases involving all areas of family law as listed above. In accordance with Resolution’s Code of Practice, Victoria places a strong emphasis on resolving issues in a constructive way. Since qualifying Victoria has been able to secure financial settlements for many of her clients through negotiations outside of the court room.
