Although it might feel like it at the time, divorce is not the end – I’ll help you to find your way to a new beginning.
I’ve been practicing family law for over 27 years, and I use my plain-speaking approach to solve complex problems. I know what I’m doing, and I’ll tell you what you need to hear – whether I take the sensitive or brutally honest road, you can be sure you’re getting the right advice.
I’m registered with the Football Association as an approved solicitor, and am regularly called upon by professional footballers and their wives/partners to advise on pre-nuptial agreements or relationship breakdowns. However, I work with many different kinds of people who are facing divorce, and no matter what the case, you can rely on me to get a fair result.
Out of work, I play in a band called the Devils Advocates, and I love riding motorbikes and visiting the Isle of Man TT races.
Be open, honest and transparent, even when you feel uncomfortable. The more I know, the better I can support you.
Remain focused on the children – they’re the ones that will be most affected by a separation, so you need to support them above all else.
Listen to the advice I give you, and be realistic in terms of your expectations.
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.
How long will it take?
It depends on the case, but as a general rule, most court proceedings take a minimum of 4–6 months to resolve. If it’s highly contentious and has to progress to a final hearing, the average is 6–12 months.
What can I expect?
Family law is all about balance, so it’s fair to expect that you may have to compromise. When children are involved, they’ll take priority, and we’ll do everything possible to get a result that helps both parties.
