Career

Rayma has been working in family law for nearly two decades, specialising primarily in resolving financial issues between spouses on family breakdown.

She works tirelessly to help her client’s separate with dignity and to ensure, for the sake of any children involved, that relations between separating couples remain as amicable as possible.

If and when required, Rayma has access to experts who can assist such as Trust Lawyers, accountants, financial planners and therapists. She will quickly gather together a bespoke team of specialists to ensure individual needs of each client are met, and every angle of a case is covered.

Divorce can be devastating for a family if it is conducted badly. Getting specialist legal advice as early as possible from someone who will quickly understand your needs is absolutely essential to avoid unnecessary distress for the family as a whole. This is where Rayma, and her team, will be invaluable to you.
