If you’re struggling with a family dispute and need help moving on, I’m here to get you through those tough times. With over 27 years’ experience in all areas of family law, I bring a calm, positive approach to my cases, and will do everything I can to give you a fresh start.
I often deal with cases where complex financial arrangements are involved, especially in regards to high net worth individuals and military families. However, I work with clients from all backgrounds, including spouses, co-habiting couples, same sex couples, newly engaged couples, parents and grandparents. I also advise on kinship care, and have links with organisations such as Kinship Carers and Grandparents Plus.
After a busy day at the office, I like to unwind by playing with the Ledbury Community Brass Band – come and see us if you’re in the area!
The more prepared you are, the better. Whenever we meet, make sure you bring any relevant information with you.
Be willing to accept my advice. I’m acting in your best interests, and I know the system very well.

The time for a case to be resolved can vary – it depends on how cooperative each person is within the negotiations, and what your lawyers recommend.
Will I have to speak in court?
Not always. I’ll act as your spokesperson, and you may only have to give evidence at a final hearing.
