About me

I have specialised in divorce and family law since 2013. I advise clients on a wide range of family law issues which arise on the breakdown of a marriage or cohabitation, with a particular strength and focus on financial claims. I also regularly advise clients in relation to pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, cohabitation contracts and asset protection.

I will give you prompt, and concise advice, and will support and guide you through difficult times. I am solution-driven and will work hard to resolve your case in the most cost-effective and timely way possible. I pride myself on client care and my use of technology to collaborate with others.

Outside of work, I am a musician and songwriter, and play guitar and bass in several bands. I also enjoy sports and regularly play hockey and squash. If I’m not in the family court, you may well find me on the squash court instead!

Slow down! Take time to consider your options and the advice that you have been given and talk it through with your lawyer.

Divorce wears hard on people, but it’s important to keep calm – it’s much easier to think when your judgment isn’t clouded by emotion.

It helps lots of people to see that the end is in sight, so set yourself a clear path to the finish line.

Read questions I'm frequently asked

How long does a divorce take?

The average divorce takes six to nine months. If court proceedings are necessary to resolve matters, it can take much longer than that – sometimes up to 18 months.

Can the other parent stop me from spending time with my children?

This is usually very difficult for them to do, unless there is serious evidence to suggest you pose a risk to your children’s welfare. Following the Children and Families Act 2014, it is now widely thought that having both parents in the life of the children is best for them. While courts deal with each case on an individual basis, they’ll usually do what’s right by the children and uphold your rights as a non-resident parent to see them.

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.
