Vanda James


Having been a family lawyer for more years than I have fingers and toes, there is nothing that surprises me when relationships break down. Getting individuals out the other end with the best outcome possible requires strength and resilience.  I have both in abundance from my own life experiences.


I come to work every day to make a difference to those going through one of the most stressful times of their lives. I help to solve their problems with diligence, focus and determination.  I have breadth and depth of experience and the ability to see a strategic way forward. Clients can rely on the fact that I  am passionate about getting the right outcome and I never give up.


One of the best things anyone said to me was “You are formidable – I’m glad you’re on my side!”
