Welcome. Things here have changed a bit.

Family Law Results has joined forces with some other likeminded lawyers, mediators and coaches to become...


If you’ve sought out Family Law Results, you may be wondering about the changes to our website.


In an exciting move, we have joined forces with a team of lawyers from around New Zealand. My colleagues and I have come together out of our shared commitment to doing law differently and helping out clients resolve their family law disputes out of Court. 

Our new practice is called Lighthouse Legal. Its tagline sums up the shared philosophy and approach to legal practice that has brought my colleagues and I together: Understand. Resolve. Thrive

Three years ago I took the plunge, ended my 20+ years of litigation and became the first family law firm in New Zealand to offer a specialised dispute resolution service to keep its clients out of Court. My mission was to change the way New Zealanders experience family law and separation. My commitment to this has not changed. If anything, it is stronger now that I have been joined by other likeminded lawyers who also are dedicated to treating Court as a last resort.  

Every lawyer at Lighthouse Legal is trained in Collaborative Law. Some of us are also trained mediators while others are also trained divorce coaches. I am particularly excited that I can now offer my clients more extensive range of services beyond family law, thanks to the expertise of my colleagues at Lighthouse.  

Thank you to my clients over the last 22 years of Family Law Results. I look forward to serving you and new clients. Come on over to Lighthouse Legal. I look forward to chatting with you about how my colleagues and I can assist you to dial down uncertainty and conflict and find a clearer, more positive way to resolve your legal issues.

Our clients are a great bunch. Take a look at what some of them had to say about working with Selina.

“A big thanks to Selina and the team. I highly recommend their services. A great result considering the circumstances. Throughout the whole process, Selina always provided sound advice with precise and clear correspondence at every turn. The best family lawyer I’ve had. I wish I’d utilised Selina previously and will definitely be a return client if the need arises again although, thanks to the result, this is unlikely.” - P.I.
