In such case assets are often held through companies or trusts and the parties are fighting over the assets.

Sofia is an expert in these cases, which tend to be hard fought. She is absolutely devoted to her clients and makes herself avialable at any times day or night. Often the client is distressed and needs constant attention and she is there for them to give both moral and legal support.’
