Why Me | family lawyer

I have been practicing as a Russian family lawyer, solicitor and barrister, for over 14 years, specialising in international family law matters. For many years I’ve been a member of the IAML, a worldwide association of practicing family lawyers who are recognised by their peers as the most experienced and skilled family law specialists in their respective countries.


I have high qualifications in Russian and Australian law, the latter bearing a lot of similarities with the UK and the US Family law. I’ve practiced law and appeared in courts in Russia and abroad as a barrister and legal expert in Russian law, including the Supreme Court of Russia, the Family Court of Australia, the High Court of the UK, High Court of Netherlands and other. This background allows me to understand your culture, expectations and concerns when you step into the unknown territory of Russian Family Law.


Having my a family of my own, over the years I became passionate about what I do. I pride myself in helping families and individuals through what may be most difficult and distressing period of their lives. I believe in the approach that focuses on maintaining a civil relationship between partners when Family Law has to interfere with their family life, and working towards compromise where possible. Many years practicing as a barrister I understand that when you go to court you need your legal representative to be experienced, knowledgeable and strong, and I strive to meet those expectations.

I have a wealth of experience working with top tier law firms in the UK, the USA and Australia. I’ve been working with high net worth individuals for many years as well as people with more modest income. I believe that no matter what, our clients need a professional, ethical and quality legal service.
