Areas of Practice
Mariana’s commitment to matrimonial and family law stems from a strong belief that those areas of law are both more challenging and more rewarding than other areas of legal practice because of the tremendous impact on clients’ personal lives.
Going through a divorce, or any proceeding involving children, means that a client needs to have regular access to an attorney who will explain the law, the process, the various approaches that can be taken and the risks and benefits that each option entails. Mariana strongly believes in keeping clients fully informed about all developments in their cases and makes sure they are involved in all decision-making.
Representing a client in any family law matter, whether it is drafting a prenuptial or mid-nuptial agreement, an annulment, paternity proceedings, child support, child custody, maintenance application or divorce is both a privilege and a responsibility. Mariana’s strong preference is to settle cases amicably through negotiation and meditation; however, she is also a skilled and seasoned courtroom advocate who is prepared to go to trial when necessary to protect a client’s rights.
