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!

She and Ella received the following thanks from their client: “I just want to say a very warm thank you for all the support and work during this time. You both made it easy and understandable, it’s an uneasy job to think about separation when we are excited about getting married.”
