Amanda O’Brien


Amanda completed her training as a Chartered Legal Executive in 1998 whilst working for an established firm in Chichester.   Whilst she has dealt with all aspects of family law her work led to her taking a keen interest in cases involving children and where possible assisting clients to focus on agreeing arrangements by way of a conciliatory approach.

The mediation approach is a feature of Amanda’s work. As a trained community mediator she combines this with her experience in family law to maintain where possible a non-confrontational way forward.

Amanda recognises that taking steps to commence divorce proceedings, dealing with financial and children matters can, for some clients, be a difficult step to take.  However she has experience in advising and supporting clients through the process whether this be a straightforward case or require intervention through the court process.
