About me

If you’re at your breaking point and need a calm, understanding person to help you work through the issues, I’m here to listen. I help to bring an end to relationships that aren’t working with as little conflict as possible, resolving issues concerning children and finances so that my clients can reach the light at the end of the tunnel.

Every day, I provide assistance to people from all walks of life – husbands, wives, cohabitees, mothers, fathers and even grandparents on occasion. I never underestimate how stressful the breakdown of a relationship can be, and I endeavour to get the best possible result I can for you and the people that depend on you.

Outside work, my passions are my family (I have three young children) and sport.  I love running and represent East Wales in cross country events.

Testimonial for family lawyer who provided “huge support” for client

Divorce can be difficult at the best of times – particularly if the other party is looking to contest proceedings. Alex Wilson, Partner and Head of Family Law in Wye Valley, was recently contacted by a client who wished to bring an end to her long marriage. She and her husband were approaching retirement age, and Alex’s client wanted to find a way to separate their assets fairly in a way that protected her financial future – without going through expensive court proceedings. The assets included a jointly-owned family home, pensions and a trust. Alex took a realistic, practical approach and was able to persuade the other party not to contest the divorce. Through negotiations, between solicitors, Alex was able to agree financial arrangements for her client and successfully argue that an interest in a trust shouldn’t be included for sharing. A financial remedy order made by consent closed each party’s claims against the other, protecting Alex’s client’s future. Following the successful, Alex’s client provided this testimonial: “I just wanted to say a really big thank you for seeing me through the whole lengthy and tricky divorce process. You were always there to answer my questions and listen to my ranting! “To have your consistency and steadiness was a huge support and I couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you for what you do!”

Read questions I'm frequently asked

Where do I begin?

First, I need to hear your side of the story. So, come in and have a chat with me – this usually lasts for about an hour. While you’re with me, I’ll unpick the issues and give you a clear idea of what options you have moving forward.

How long will it take?

It depends on the case, but as a general rule, most court proceedings take a minimum of 4–6 months to resolve. If it’s highly contentious and has to progress to a Final Hearing, the average is 6–12 months.

How much it will cost?

This depends on the process and nature of your dispute, but we take great care to estimate costs and work out a plan to make sure you’re in financial control of your case.
