A.H.A.C. (Astrid) Waals

“There’s a first time for everything”

Astrid Waals has been practising law since 1993. She fully commits to family law, as an attorney, but also as a mediator. Acting as a neutral, experienced and skilled mediator, it is her goal to get parties to sit with each other at one table to reach a solution, which will allow them to move on both emotionally and financially.  In hundreds of divorce cases through the years, Astrid has shown the ability to unite that which could not be united. Her experience and expertise, but most of all, her sincere commitment to these situations are an important warranty for this. Astrid loves to look for fitting and often creative solutions.

If mediation is not an option, Astrid will take to the judicial highway with as much dedication and commitment. In doing so, together with you, she will determine the right balance between what is just and what is feasible.
