Position

Meena Kumari is a director in the family and child care departments at Duncan Lewis Solicitors and has a wealth of experience involving complex children cases with an international element, as well as cases where the children have special needs. Meena has particular expertise in negotiating medium to high-net financial settlements for clients in the course of separation, divorce and dissolution of civil partnership. This is an area of family law requiring a tenacious and proactive approach as well as meticulous attention, qualities Meena possesses in abundance.  

Meena believes in adopting a proactive rather than a reactive approach to family law in each of its different facets and strives to ensure that what is often a very difficult situation for clients is not made more difficult due to inaction or lack of foresight. She has a passion for advocacy and represents the majority of her clients at every court hearing.
