The Dos and Don’ts of Separation with lawyer Pippa Colman

Nov 14, 2022

In episode #60, Mel and Trish chat with lawyer Pippa Colman about the dos and don’ts of separation as sadly, this is a situation confronting a considerable number of midlife women. Pippa launched her practice in 2001 and in addition to being a lawyer, is a qualified mediator and arbitrator, one who is regularly engaged by other lawyers to act in this capacity. In other words, she is a brilliantly qualified, super capable midlife woman with a wealth of practical experience and advice to share. 

Pippa believes the best way to approach this situation is with kindness and respect and in her very calm and professional manner, talks the girls through the necessary steps to take when facing this situation and equally those to absolutely avoid. She explains that since the price of separation is high (both literally and metaphorically), it’s imperative to get good advice and follow it as closely as possible so the best outcomes can be achieved for all parties. 

There is a lot of practical, no-nonsense advice offered by Pippa based on many years of experience. Even if this situation does not relate directly to you, no doubt, it relates to someone you know. A not-to-be-missed episode. 

Enjoy the intelligence and integrity of Pippa Colman.
