Sital Fontenelle



I specialise in complex financial matters within a divorce, including international jurisdictional cases, advising on pre-nuptial agreements as well as every aspect of private children law cases.

My role involves thinking outside the box and pushing boundaries to find a solution for my clients when they are faced with a number of difficulties in their day-to-day lives.

I am committed to settling my client's case with a view to minimising the stress involved. I provide constructive and pragmatic advice to achieve their goals and strive to obtain positive results.

In 2012, I was nominated for "Associate of the Year" at the Jordan's Law Awards.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Getting a good end result – sometimes it can be a long and difficult path but knowing that you have helped your client get there gives me a great sense of achievement.
