Tell us about yourself
I qualified as a solicitor in 1992 and have been with Bookers and Bolton since April 2000.
In which areas of law do you specialise?
My specialist area is family law and this encompasses a range of issues including:
- Separation and relationship breakdown for married and unmarried partners
- Divorce and financial aspects
- Pre-marital and cohabitation contracts
- Children-related disputes including contact and residence
- Civil partnership law
I also have expertise in a variety of disputes and claims including:
- Personal injury
- Road traffic accidents
- Contentious probate (claims on an estate)
- Contract disputes
- Building disputes
- Debt collection
I am a member of the Law Society’s Family Law Panel and Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers committed to dealing with family problems in a constructive and non-confrontational manner.
Tsyrina is undertaking the Diploma course run by the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP). She supports the private client department and her work includes Will preparation, Administration of Estates and Trusts and applications to the Court of Protection for Deputyship and other orders.
What do you offer clients of Bookers and Bolton?
I feel that it is very important for clients to know about the costs they are likely to incur at the outset and throughout the course of their case, and that they should be fully aware of their legal rights, the merits or otherwise of their case and the options open to them.
I am committed to ensuring that each client is fully informed at the outset and throughout the case about legal fees, their rights and liabilities and their chances of success.
Mediation and prompt resolution of disputes in a non-confrontational and constructive way are initiatives that I fully support because they are far better for everyone concerned and could result in issues being resolved sooner, and with less cost to the parties both financially and emotionally.
