Since 1995 she runs her own law practice as an advocate en advises predominantly entrepreneurs and professionals on family law and estate matters. She has specialties in marital law, alimony and inheritance law. She is legal and strategic sparring partner in company succession matters and (family) company reorganisations. With a classical education (gymnasium) and a preference for numbers, dealing with financial matters are ‘a piece of cake’ to her.
'As a family law lawyer I strongly feel that there should be a relationship based on trust between client and lawyer. My clients can therefore always call me, because I know that they will not misuse this privilege.'
