Get in touch with Kate
Separation and the divorce process can be confusing – especially when you factor in the emotional upheaval. To remedy this Kate Major places clear, constant communication with her clients at the centre of her approach.
Kate finds many clients don’t just want legal advice. They want guidance on how to navigate separation and take that step into the next phase of their lives.
She believes clients take comfort in understanding the complexities of the legal system. Kate takes her time explaining how things will work and what to expect so there are no surprises for her clients. Equally, she places an emphasis on taking a realistic approach to all matters, offering a practical and objective viewpoint about what can and can not be achieved.
She is motivated by the challenge of solving the breadth of problems that her diverse cross-section of clients have. She wants to see her clients maintain control of their matter and encourages both parties to reach agreement and avoid expensive, exhausting litigation in the Family Court.
As a family lawyer, Kate takes her greatest satisfaction in seeing her clients resolve the issues that are most important to them, such as issues about their children or the property they have worked so hard to obtain. She achieves this by offering an empathetic ear coupled with attention to detail, driven focus and diligence to find solutions in the most cost-effective and timely manner possible.
