A bit about me

I meet people at what’s often the worst moment of their life, and I help to guide them through to a brighter looking future. I’ve been a practising family lawyer for over 35 years, and there’s still no better reward than helping my clients move onto a new chapter in their life with confidence and security.

As the head of the Family department, I lead a large and experienced team, who all have a real commitment to caring for each client and understanding what they need. I’m available to talk no matter what time of day, and I’ll do everything I can to ensure you know exactly what’s happening at each stage of the dispute.

I enjoy all sport, especially football (I’m a long-suffering Leeds United fan), and I have a passion for music – I drum in a band with some other members of the firm.

Want to know more?

Take some time to work out your emotions.

Set clear goals – this will help you stay focused throughout the proceedings.

Listen carefully to our advice and stay calm.

Whilst no-one can predict the future, with the best legal advice from the outset of your relationship, you can be confident that you have covered all bases, leaving you to enjoy your future together.

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.

What settlement will I receive?

We’ll always provide careful advice, in plain English, about the pros and cons of your case. From this, we’ll develop a strategy for achieving a fair settlement.
