THE DIV EX STORY
Commencing her legal career in 2001, and with over 15 years experience as a successful family law advocate, in 2012, Kristy sought to formalise, map out and share the key to her continued success in separation and family law matters.
Over the next five years Kristy Perdriau and co-founder, Sam Perdriau continued their commitment in finding the best ways to win for you, by analysing hundreds of cases the firm had handled.
This dedicated study highlighted that every successful and winning case had 5 common traits:
- The client sought early advice;
- The client was clear of the outcome they wanted;
- The lawyer used a perceptive and holistic approach;
- The client aligned with adjusted values;
- The client strictly followed the lawyer’s advice.
The revelation of these 5 critical points highlighted the fundamental importance of strategy and this motivated Sam and Kristy to study strategy in great depth.
Kristy and Sam never do anything by halves, so drawing on her experience of 12 years as a Specialist Reservist in the Royal Australian Air Force, Kristy and Sam both studied military tactics and analysed sports, financial and business strategies. From Sun Tzu to Tony Robbins and everything in between, all the time drawing parallels to the family law process and refining the winning strategies for their clients.
Thereafter, Kristy’s first book and best-seller, DIVORCING YOUR EX – How to win against HIM in Divorce was written specifically for women, cementing her as ‘Australia’s Leading Divorce & Separation Strategist’.
Following the success of her first book, Kristy is currently writing the companion book in the series for men.
Unsurprisingly, DIV eX is an emerging power and one of the most highly innovative forces within the legal industry. DIV eX is a firm with no limits, leading the way with a focus on winning for you.
