Geeta Nandoe Tewarie graduated in private law and business law from Leiden University in 1998 and has practiced law since 1999. During the first ten years of her career, she specialized in liability law and then switched to family law.

She currently works as a fully qualified Vfas- attorney and Vfas- divorce mediator. Geeta has a special interest in matrimonial property law and maintenance issues.

Trusted advisor

Her choice of both legal areas reflects her commitment to her clients. Her clients are often in a turbulent phase of their lives, in which they have to deal with emotions and business issues. Clients must make decisions that have a major impact on their own lives and those of their children. Clients then have to make decisions that could have a major impact on their own lives and those of their children. Especially in this hectic period, clients need a trusted advisor who assists them with their business and personal interests to get the best result.

Geeta is the trusted advisor in this period, who takes up the case with a critical view and takes steps in close consultation with her clients to find solutions. In addition, she has extensive experience with various legal proceedings. Although the starting point is always to reach good agreements in mutual consultation, Geeta does not shy away from legal proceedings. She is an attorney in heart and soul, who also knows how to solve cases with an international legal character well. Geeta's subspecialty is psychiatric patient law, where she also assists clients in a very vulnerable period of their lives.

Ancillary activities

Apart from her work as an attorney, Geeta has been able to use her extensive litigation experience in a positive way by working since 2004 as a skills trainer at the professional training institute for the legal profession. She likes to pass on her own knowledge and enthusiasm for the profession to starting attorneys, but also attaches great value to her own expertise. That is why she regularly takes refresher courses to keep abreast of the latest legal developments. This enables her to assist her clients better. She also teaches the subject of personal and family law at the professional training for lawyers. In addition to her work as a lawyer, she likes to contribute to education. She has been a lecturer in legal skills at the Erasmus School of Law in Rotterdam. She is currently a lecturer in Matrimonial Property Law and Personal and Family Law at the University of Amsterdam.

Finally, she likes to do her bit for the common good. She is a lawyer at heart. From the very beginning, she has been involved with the International Bar Association and the Dutch Bar Association. Most recently, she has been a member of the Dutch Bar Association's Platform Inclusion and Diversity, which is a focus of social attention. Finally, she provides input on an ad hoc basis as an external family law expert to a national television station in this area.

In short: Geeta is a specialized, committed attorney with a solution-oriented approach, who does not shy away from proceedings. She takes on cases with subsidized legal aid as well.
