Mr. M.R.P. (Marion) Drielsma
‘To find the best possible solutions together with my clients, solutions that are geared to my clients’ own specific situations, that is my passion.’
Marion Drielsma has a national reputation for her ability to find practical and feasible solutions to legal and emotionally complex issues.
After a thorough training and ample experience in general advisory and litigation practice, Marion gradually took up more and more family law. She is specialised in guiding people through the divorce process including maintenance issues and contact arrangements, both in a national and an international context. She provides second-opinion advice on the approach of a case and regularly acts as supporting lawyer for parties in a mediation process. Marion also uses her ample experience for pre-nuptial advice: advising parties on prenuptial agreements prior to a marriage.
In addition to being a family law lawyer, she has been a divorce mediator since 1995. She is a member of the Dutch association of family law lawyers and divorce mediators (vFAS) and of MfN
(Mediatorsfederatie Nederland, Netherlands Federation of Mediators).
She is especially experienced in communicating with children when she works with divorcing parents. Marion is able to apply her ample experience both in the court room and as a mediator to the many faceted aspects of family law.
Marion is the co-author of the book “Op eigen kracht. Scheiden en de kunst van een gelukkig(-er) leven” [On your own. Divorce and the art of leading a happy or happier life] (Thema, 2010).
In the world of advice and legal assistance, trust is everything. For that reason, Marion likes to make a first thirty-minute appointment free of charge. To give information, answer questions and to discuss the kind of service people may expect. Appointments outside regular office hours are also possible.
Marion has registered the following principal legal practice area in the Netherlands Bar’s register of legal practice areas:
Based on this registration she is required to obtain ten training credits per calendar year in this principal legal practice area in accordance with the standards set by the Netherlands Bar.
