Maya Perfors

Maya has been working in family law for nearly 40 years, as a lawyer and mediator. She has a wealth of experience, including in complex divorces and cases for entrepreneurs. On top of that, she has been a deputy justice at the Amsterdam Court of Appeal for many years, giving her prime knowledge of judges’ perspective on certain cases. It enables her to accurately estimate the chances of success in legal proceedings. Maya is a no-nonsense and committed person. She focuses on solutions. This also means that she does her absolute best to reach a settlement instead of conducting lengthy and costly procedures. This is particularly true in cases involving children. She is regularly asked for advice on how to approach a case or to open new avenues in negotiations on a settlement for a dispute or in a mediation process.
