JUDr. Anna van der Weerden, advocate

About us

Law can be practiced differently. My way of working is based on good communication with clients, effective and timely legal solutions.

I believe that I can offer completely different approach to provision of legal services, flexibility, beneficial conditions, moreover, my comfortable office premises.

I am freelance advocate based in Prague. I have been working with foreigners and refugees already since 2003, when I had been working for several NGOs in the Czech Republic as well as in the Netherlands. That is actually the reason I focus now within my advocacy practice on the provision of complex legal services to foreigners, as well as Czech persons and companies in English.

I graduated my master studies at the Faculty of Law, Charles University in Prague. I completed a one year study of Human Rights and Criminal Justice at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. I have worked as an Associate at two law firms in Prague. My main focus was on cases with international elements. In 2011- 2012 I worked as an in-house lawyer in a Consultancy/IT Company in the Netherlands.

I speak English at a professional level and I communicate in Dutch, as well as I have a knowledge of German and French (both passive at the moment) which can be advantageous.

I mostly specialize in cases with international element and cases where foreign law or language is concerned.

I hired JUDr. A. van der Weerden (Anna) to help with what proved to be a very lengthy and nasty divorce. At numerous times I was worried I would lose everything including and most importantly my 2 children. As an expat American man living in Prague and at the time married to a Czech woman with 2 young children together I was unsure of process or even the potential of an acceptable outcome. I first found Anna by reading multiple good reviews of her and now it’s my turn to add my thoughts and perhaps help someone else make a decision on legal representation that will help them get through a difficult time. Anna was a beacon of hope for me at a time when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed impossible. Her calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional comfort and hope throughout the process. At the same time, in and out of the court room, Anna was extremely professional, knowledgeable, responsive in her approach and very aggressive when necessary. Despite the unbelievable emotional and challenging times Anna kept me calm, focused and well informed of the best options and directions to take throughout the process. By far Anna is a great family law attorney and the best attorney to engage for the scary and emotional process of divorce. I was represented better than I could have ever imagined and in the end, I am eternally grateful for her service and I highly recommend JUDr. A. van der Weerden. In short if you want a great family law attorney, hire JUDr. A. van der Weerden as your divorce lawyer.

I am very pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and her determination. Everything was handled in a timely manner and she did everything to speed up the process and make it as pleasant as possible. Above all she is a great human being who genuinely cares for her clients. I will gladly recommend her services when and where applicable.

I would highly recommend Anna for anyone who has had any legal problems while visiting Prague. She dealt with my case efficiently and very professionally, I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome for my case or indeed anyone better to represent me. She replied to all my correspondence in a timely manner and kept me informed of any updates as needed. Anna is also a very nice person and was very easy to get along with when I was fortunate enough to meet her.
