She also has particular experience in private children law and in advising in difficult, highly contentious and complex disputes between parents or carers upon separation relating to a child’s residence, contact or other disputes between them.

Soulla works with a number of domestic violence charities and offers a caring approach to ensuring that her clients, and their children, are protected against the threat of further domestic abuse.

She encourages her clients where possible, to resolve disputes out of Court and deals with cases in a non-confrontational and constructive manner.

Clients praise her for her friendly, insightful and compassionate approach.  She responds quickly to the needs of her clients and offers expert advice to ensure the best possible outcome is obtained for all her clients.

Soulla is also a member of the Association of Lawyers for Children.

Soulla enjoys going to the theatre, travelling and going to the cinema.
