She also assists in family law, more particularly with liquidating and settling post-community joint ownerships, after a divorce.


Maître Colleville also advises professionals such as Notaries and genealogists in the context of high-stake successions and technical legal issues they may need to address.


Active listening, proactiveness and efficiency are the commitments that Maître Colleville strives to respect, always integrating the human issues inherent to each case.
