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.
The Family Law team are large and experienced, and 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.
