Arlette Schijns

Attorney at law

‘Because of their vulnerable position, personal injury victims, even more so than others, need a good lawyer who can balance out discussions with the liable party. I like to apply my experience and expertise in liability and procedural law for the people that need it most. I am a dedicated lawyer, assertive and tenacious where necessary.’
