A bit about me

When you need honest and straightforward advice about your current situation, come and see me – I’m committed, empathetic and conscientious, and I’ll help you to find a way through.

I handle cases in all areas of family law, including divorce, separation,  and matters involving children. In particular, I help to resolve financial issues, getting a fair settlement for my clients. I work with people from every background, such as directors, shareholders, members of the Armed Forces, teachers, doctors, and many more.

Want to know more?

Focus on the issues at hand and try to separate those from your emotions.

When it comes to disclosing your financial situation, be frank and provide all the details – this will make the process far smoother.

Don’t waste time and energy on establishing whose fault the divorce is. Many people fear that blame will impact on any financial settlement, but this is rarely the 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.

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 much will I receive by way of settlement?

There’s no set formula or definitive answer when it comes to a financial settlement, and the decision will be made on a case-by-case basis.
