The motivation that drives her as a lawyer?
“Taking careful note of the clients’ underlying interests and acting in a constructive manner so that the best possible result can be achieved together with the clients.

Having a meaningful role in providing lasting solutions of disputes gives me the greatest satisfaction.”
Mariska listens with empathy to her clients, acts in a resolute manner and communicates clearly. These are qualities which are very useful in her work as a lawyer in all aspects of family law. “Ensuring that clients feel understood and providing them with expert advice tailored to their needs are in my opinion essential parts of advocacy.”
Her approach? She has a committed and solution-oriented approach. “I am highly empathetic and I always consider it a challenge to discover what it is that keeps parties divided. By taking the underlying feelings and emotions into consideration provides me with an understanding of the sore points and allows me to arrive at problem-solving approaches which do justice to the common interests.”
