Willemijn E. Povel

Willemijn Povel is capable of working more or less anywhere in the field of personal and family law. She is reliable, deeply involved with her cases, and has outstanding analytic abilities. Because of her experience, which she gained as a lawyer and at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in The Hague, Willemijn has evolved into a dedicated lawyer who is passionate about achieving the best-possible results for her clients.

Willemijn studied Jurisprudence at VU University Amsterdam, where she wrote her Bachelor’s thesis on the subject of family law. She also studied at Uppsala University in Sweden and completed her Master’s degree in International Law at the University of Amsterdam. While taking her Master’s degree, Willemijn did additional modules on family law and international private law.
