Get in touch with Vanessa
Vanessa Clark is a member of the Perth family law team where she works alongside Jon Redman and Jacinda Hansen to provide straightforward, actionable advice to a wide range of clients whose cases range from those with a simple set of circumstances to those that are very complex and require a strong attention to detail.
The nature of Vanessa’s areas of expertise—those that are highly emotive and personal—align perfectly with her skillset and experience as a practicing lawyer, mediator, advocate, and litigator.
Always focussing on the bigger picture, Vanessa ensures that her true empathy for her clients is carefully balanced with objectivity that allows her to guide them towards the best possible result whilst acknowledging the emotional impact and intricate, personal nature of her clients’ cases and the resolutions that are reached.
Vanessa is a passionate advocate for her clients and, where applicable, their children. She works closely with each and every person involved in her cases to ensure that each matter is properly resolved—with home and family-related cases, emotions often run high but Vanessa’s case management skills coupled with her experience allows her to avoid letting these sway the ideal just and proper outcome.
A separation, or any aspect of the law that involves familial disputes or children for that matter, is likely one of the most difficult and traumatic experiences a client will have, period. Vanessa understands this and is committed to guiding her clients through the intricacies of their cases with an appropriate level of sensitivity.
Vanessa considers it a privilege to be afforded the opportunity to help families and children in their times of need.
All-in-all, Vanessa delivers strong and insightful legal advice to her clients and focuses heavily on achieving optimal resolutions as quickly as possible.
