Sarah Overy

Senior Associate

Many years ago I sat with Sarah for an initial consultation regarding complex family law matters. She was approachable, professional and understanding from the start. I could not have had a better advocate in over the following five or six years. Sarah exuded professionalism in the face of provocation and obstruction, kept me fully informed throughout and obtained the very best outcome I could have hoped for. I recommend her without hesitation.

Other Information

In cases where court proceedings are unavoidable, Sarah uses her extensive experience to see clients through the process as quickly and effectively as possible.

Sarah can help with all areas of family law, including divorce, couples living together, same sex marriage and civil partnerships, pre and post nuptial agreements, financial disputes and children.

 As an accredited mediator Sarah sees couples together to help and support them to resolve their disputes. Mediation is often cost effective and achieves better outcomes than at court and where there are children couples can reach solutions tailor made for their family’s needs. It is less stressful and time consuming and can be used not just for divorcing or separating couples but by grandparents about their grandchildren and step-parents and other extended family members.
