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 chose Anna to be my divorce lawyer by reading the comments here, so now that everything is over I can make my review and maybe somebody might find this helpful. I am really satisfied with her work and I can definitely recommend her. She replied to me in a prompt manner via mail, mobile, skype you name it, even while she was a new mother. Her advise was always to the point, explaining as much as possible about the outcome and the process to be followed, to someone totally unfamiliar to Czech laws. Most importantly though, she made sure that I was not deprived of my rights as a father and so I was able to see my daughter during the whole period. Of course no guarantees can be made in these matters, so I really cannot understand what more can be expected from a lawyer. The whole process can be prolonged by the other party, as it happened in my case with my ex-wife, but I cannot blame Anna for not acting properly. In fact she was really knowledgeable of the whole process and always advised me on what needs to be done to get results. She was always well prepared for any meeting or hearing no matter if it was with the social services, the judge or the appeal court. Very professional and really outstanding performance especially when it mattered the most which was of course inside the court room. Taking care of less important matters like translating or legalizing documents, court decisions etc was also done seamlessly.

Excellent international lawyer

I have no hesitation in recommending Anna to anyone with legal problems. She dealt with my case via Skype calls and emails very efficiently. Incredible! What she achieved for me I didn't think was possible. I consider myself really lucky to have met her and have her represent me. She is not only experienced and professional but also a lovely sympathetic person. Would certainly use her services again.

Anna was outstanding in helping me through my divorce and custody. She was quick to respond to any question that I had. 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.

Anna van der Weerden is one of the best lawyers I have ever had to deal with. Ms vd Weerden did everything in her power to make sure I was satisfied with the outcome of my case. - competent, professional, efficient, thorough - persistent, energetic, tough as nails - likable personality I recommend her up and down.
