She works on behalf of clients in divorce and separation proceedings, child custody and visitation rights, alimony, international child relocation and abduction.

She has assisted victims of domestic violence (e.g physical and psychological violence, sexual assault, harassment), before the family judge in order to obtain urgent protection measures,  and in criminal courts to claim compensation.

She  also deals with all the issues which might arise about parentage and adoption,  child protection and legal protection for the vulnerable.

Maud Coudrais prides herself on listening attentively to her clients, treating them all as individuals, tailoring advice to their particular needs, being aware of all the potential consequences.


She has trained in collaborative law, a process for resolving family disputes through negotiation to reach out of court settlements.

Should the need arise, she can rely on range of trusted colleagues, particularly in Italy, either to implement domestic  laws of the jurisdiction in question or to intervene directly before the courts of the country concerned.
