Her aim is to always try, where possible, to keep matters out of the costly court system, and encourage couples to resolve their issues as amicably as possible. Her focus and attention to detail are key in achieving the best result for her clients.
Amanda understands the financial complexities of separating couples trying to split assets in order to achieve a fair and reasonable outcome, so that two new households can be maintained going forward. Amanda encourages clients to remain as amicable as possible and strives to ensure her clients get their fair share.
Amanda is a member of Resolution, an organisation of professionals involved in relationship breakdown, who are committed to the settlement of disputes in a constructive, non-confrontational and cost effective manner.
“The difficult and emotional turmoil that results from a relationship breakdown can never be underestimated, for both the couple and their family. I aim to make the process as painless as possible and make sure my clients are treated fairly. When someone reaches the end of the process and can move onto the next chapter in their life with their head held high, I know I have done the best I can for that client.”

‘Amanda Erskine was the main lead solicitor in my case and she dealt with everything very professionally. Her knowledge is second to none, and her being a parent as well gives her a good understanding of family situations and what is needed to get the job done for the better of all parties involved.’
‘Amanda Erskine was the solicitor assigned to me to deal with my divorce. I was immediately impressed by Amanda. She was professional, empathic and I knew from my first meeting with her that I was in good hands. Amanda patiently explained things that I did not understand. Amanda and her assistant always responded promptly to emails and phone calls. She dealt with my then spouse and advised me of the best way forward. Amanda made a very awful experience much more bearable and I would have no hesitation in recommended her.’
‘A great family feel throughout the practice. Excellent lawyers with a great way with clients.’
