A bit about me

Working in family law means working with real people to help them achieve life-changing aims. Client care is at the heart of everything I do.

It is more than just knowing the law; it’s about using over 20 years’ experience to provide the best practical and tactical advice to each client.

Having acted for wealthy individuals, entrepreneurs, academics, and trustees on a variety of cases, clients can rely on me for realistic advice and no impossible promises. I stay by my client’s side, giving careful guidance towards a successful outcome.

My specialisms are varied and include divorce and dissolution of civil partnerships, financial settlements and negotiation, pre- and post-nuptial agreements. I also specialise in Children Act cases (including internal relocation), injunctions and collaborative law. I am also a qualified mediator.

I’m a tough negotiator and will aim to resolve your issues without the need for court, but if the need should arise then I will be by your side every step of the way.

Outside work, I am a keen traveller and love meeting new people. I am also learning to watercolour!
