About me

Family law goes beyond simply providing a service to people; it’s very much about the relationships which are shared. This area of law exemplifies these relationships and focuses on a wide range of issues that people experience within their marriage or partnership – even more so when children are involved.

I analyse beyond the basics to ensure clients get the best possible advice and support. I work with a range of individuals to ensure the best possible outcome. My specialisms include divorce matters, matrimonial finance and children’s matters.

Outside work, my passions include hockey, writing, cycling and DIY! I am also Vice-President of the Junior Lawyers Division for Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

Heartfelt testimonial for Family Law team following financial settlement

Mrs F separated from her husband and required expert advice on what to do next. She turned to Sally Robinson, Partner and Head of Family in Central England, for guidance and understanding. It was very important to Mrs F that a suitable financial resolution was found in order for her, her children and her former husband to move on comfortably. Sally dealt with the legal matters in such a way so as not to create any unnecessary tensions and guided her client through the process. She also provided counsel on balancing the legal and practical issues with the emotional aspects of the situation. Later in the process, Cat Dabbs, Legal Advisor in the Central England Family Law team, assisted in finalising the divorce and consent order containing the financial agreement both parties had reached. Following the finalisation, Mrs F said: “I’d like to thank you for all your help and support given to me over the last few years. I cannot thank you enough for your true professionalism. I have felt that at every interaction we had that you really understood the impacts to me and my family personally. “You navigated me through a really challenging time at a pace that was right for me. It was hugely important that I had a settled family life, and that everyone was alright in the end and indeed we are! “Please can you also pass my gratitude onto Cat – who was always unfailingly slick in managing the latter stages of the process. She was so responsive which was such a help especially at such a stressful time. I cannot thank you both enough and I just wanted you to know that I am really grateful. I am really glad that there are people like you doing what you do amazingly.”
