Sita Cox qualified as a Barrister in 1987 and has been practising locally ever since. She is a highly regarded family law specialist with extensive experience in her areas of practice.
Sita’s area of expertise is predominantly family law. She represents parents and children within Public Law proceedings, Family Finance disputes and is also happy to accept instructions in Private Law proceedings.
Since qualifying as a Family Mediator in 2010, her focus has been on helping clients to approach their problems in an innovative and creative way, before moving on to court.
Sita’s in-depth knowledge of the legal system, as well as her empathy and understanding of the personal issues that arise through legal action, have helped her to build up a solid base of clients.
Sita also qualified in Civil Mediation in 2015 and can now offer a full range of mediation services from her practice in Canterbury. Her greatest professional strength is her personal commitment to the job: she understands how stressful the mediation process can be and as such, she puts every effort into helping those involved to get through it easily and with as little anxiety as possible.
She is skilled in dealing with disputes by using strategies to help her clients articulate their needs and concerns, to bring clarity to the issues and to focus her clients on achieving good outcome. Sita provides her clients with a good and strong basis to resolve issues on a realistic and practical basis. She facilitates her clients to analyse the issues, risks and to approach matters in a practical way; this allows her clients to find a realistic solution, knowing that any proposal will be acceptable to their solicitor and the court.
Sita is also a member of the F.M.A, Bar Council and the F.L.B.A and is qualified to accept Direct Access Instructions.
