Gesualda specialises in family law and has held accreditation as a Family Law Specialist since 1990.

Divorce traverses many areas of law (including company, tax, property and trusts) and Gesualda’s broad understanding of the law allows her to give clients virtually everything they need to get through the divorce and separation process.

Gesualda is very sympathetic to clients in this highly emotional area and has a reputation for trying to solve a client’s problem quickly, whilst at the same time ensuring that the best possible result is achieved.

Gesualda joined KCL Law in 2005 (then called Kliger Partners) and was appointed a Principal Lawyer in January 2018.
