Marilyn Bell

Head of SA Law’s Family department


I am a family law solicitor specialising in divorce and all the difficulties that arise as a result of relationship breakdown. This includes the resolution of financial disputes and all issues relating to children. For the latter, I represent parents and grandparents, often in complex cases, and have been qualified as a member of the Law Society’s Children Panel for over 14 years.

I am also a trained mediator and a qualified collaborative lawyer, which is a system that promotes the use of non-adversarial techniques to negotiate agreements and settlements without Court proceedings.
