I have worked through my divorce with clarissa rayward as my lawyer over the past 18 months. During this protracted and often frustrating process clarissa has provided appropriate advice and tactics to move proceedings as fast as possible under the circumstances. A particular asset is her ability to call on support from financial analysts with particular strengths in the family law area so that the financial settlement is addressed in a way mutually beneficial to both parties, with consideration to the requirements of the law. She looks beyond the useless percentages so many lawyers are fixed on. My outcome could have been vastly worse for me and my ex-partner.
