Petra (M.P.J.) Frederiks
Petra Frederiks has been employed at Delissen Martens as a lawyer since July 2018. She was admitted to the Dutch Bar Association as a lawyer in 2013 and has been specializing in family law since. She advises and conducts litigations concerning all aspects of the law of persons and family law, including divorce, issues regarding maintenance and parental contact arrangements and matters in the area of the law of inheritance. Both private persons and entrepreneurs seek Petra’s assistance. Before Petra started working at Delissen Martens, she was employed at a medium-sized law firm in Gouda and a small firm specialized in family law in The Hague. During her law studies she has worked as a student assistant at the Department of Child Law of Leiden University and she has dedicated much of her time, also as a board member, to the Childrens’ and Youth law centre in Leiden.
Petra is committed, demonstrates drive and has a no-nonsense mindset, and she gives advice in a language clear to clients about the correct approach of a case, taking the best interests of the child into consideration. She always specifically prefers to seek a solution by agreement, however, she will not shy away from legal proceedings if that proves to be necessary. She has a well-structured work attitude and she will sort things out right down to the last detail. Petra listens attentively to her clients, but also provides them with assistance and advice to achieve the most desirable result. Her de-escalating attitude, sense of mutual relationships and resolve help her to achieve that.
