HCR Law Events

About me

Family law is people-focussed; I play a part in people’s journeys and help them move forward into a new chapter in their life. I provide guidance and practical solutions to clients as they go through what can be one of the most stressful experiences of their lives.

I am passionate about finding new and innovative approaches to help my clients achieve an amicable resolution to their matters.  I am a qualified family mediator and work with clients using alternative dispute resolution methods to resolve issues in constructive and non-confrontational ways. I am a member of Resolution, the national organisation of family lawyers, and sit on the West Midlands Resolution Committee and the national Resolution Parenting After Parting Committee. I am also a member of the Family Mediation Council.

I advise on all aspects of relationship breakdown, with particular expertise in dealing with complex children matters including those with an international element and internal and external relocation.  I advise separating families on divorce, the division of financial assets for both married and unmarried couples, wealth protection and cohabitation agreements.

Outside of work I love travel. I also enjoy hiking with my cocker spaniel.

Top Tips & FAQs

Discover my top tips

Take time to consider what it is you really want. Don’t feel pressured into making decisions as these will potentially frame the rest of your life. Take things one day at a time, it can sometimes be too overwhelming picturing yourself five years down the line.

Always be honest – both with yourself and your lawyer and provide as much information as you can. This will help reach the best outcome in your case.

Get yourself a good support network; people you can trust and who will support you.

Read questions I'm frequently asked

How long is it going to take?
The time it takes to resolve matters varies from case to case and can very often depend on how contentious things become. If matters remain amicable then a resolution can be reached far quicker. We will provide a breakdown of what needs to be achieved and when so that you’re kept in the picture every step of the way.

How much is it going to cost?
Every case is different – costs depend on the nature of your case, what is involved and how long it takes to resolve your dispute. However, you’ll be provided with clear cost information and estimates regularly.

Will I end up going to court?
Court is seen as a last resort in all family cases, not the starting point. It is my priority to try and reach agreements without the need for court proceedings and I will work with you to ensure all other avenues to resolution have been resolved, such as mediation and arbitration before discussing whether court is necessary.
