Pauline Burger has been a lawyer since 2000, specialising in family law in its broadest sense, and is also a divorce mediator. Pauline is engaged, empathetic, but also practical and persistent. She prefers friendly consultations between parties, especially in situations where children are involved. However, she is not afraid to take the dispute to court when needed. She also speaks English fluently and has an excellent command of French. Pauline has an international background. Both personally and in terms of her career. Because of this, she has a great deal of affinity with family law cases involving expats.
Between 1998 and 2000 she was external clerk of the division Family and Child Law of the District Court of The Hague, and between 2000 and 2010 she was a lawyer with RWV Advocaten in Leiden. She subsequently joined our firm. Pauline is a member of the association for Family Law Lawyers and Divorce Mediators (vereniging Familierecht Advocaten Scheidingsmediators, vFAS).
