About The Family Lawyer

The Family Lawyer is the blog of Selina Trigg, Director of Family Law Results.

A self-confessed family law geek, I have been practicing exclusively in family law for over 16 years. I am lucky enough to still be able to say I never have a boring day in the office. Working with clients to resolve their family law issues and seeing the vibrant tapestry of human behaviour that I encounter each day never fails to fascinate me. I get to work alongside Family Law Result's great team of enthusiastic lawyers and support staff and I spend a reasonable part of each day sharing ideas with them about the  progression of our clients' matters. 

I work from FLR's offices throughout Auckland but my clients are from throughout New Zealand and, thanks to technology,  elsewhere in the world. Most of my time as a lawyer has been spent in South Auckland, with its three busy Family Courts,  which has given me the opportunity to be involved in a wide array of family law issues. I undertake work for clients in all areas of family law including adoptions and surrogacy, parenting arrangements, family violence and family property issues.
While I have spent a fair amount of time inside the Family Court, I am committed to assisting my clients to resolve their matters outside of Court where possible. I am a trained Mediator and Collaborative Law Professional. I am the current Chair of the Collaborative Law Association of New Zealand.
When I am not busy lawyering or spending time with my infant son and teenage stepchildren, I write a regular blog about family law issues. My blog isn't intended to be heavily legalistic writing for other lawyers - it is intended to help people with family law problems understand a little more about family law and about working with lawyers.  I hope my blog will inform you, entertain you and give you an insight into why family law fascinates me so much.
