About me

Really listening to people, to find out what they want and need, is the key to being able to give them the help and support necessary in matters of family law, and that’s my main priority.

Whether it’s a divorce and the financial issues that accompany that, a question of disputes over children in a relationship which has broken down, or a matter of agreeing the terms of pre- or post-nuptial agreements, I aim to give pragmatic and straightforward advice.

Outside work, my own family is very important to me, and I love travelling too.

“Caring and professional coupled with first-rate legal advice” – high praise for family lawyer

Shereen Chohan, senior associate within our Birmingham Family Team, recently assisted a client with Children Act proceedings. The opposition sought to vary a Final Child Arrangements Order, with changes not in line with the children’s wishes or feelings, which regulates who the children would live with. Shereen was able to advise and guide her client to achieve an outcome, by consent, which was more in line with the children’s best interests and save the client the stress that further litigation in Children Proceedings often brings. Shereen received the following thanks from her client: “Myself and my partner were anxious and sceptical about the family law system and the use of solicitors. However, our experience with HCR debunked this and the service we received was first class throughout the entirety of our case. Shereen guided us through the myriad of court proceedings, she provided regular updates to us which provided a calming influence to a highly stressful situation. She put our needs first ensuring all practices were not only the best and fastest way to resolve the situation but also ensuring it was financially viable. Caring and professional coupled with first rate legal advice I cannot recommend Shereen highly enough. If you need legal advice don't waste your time worrying about it, get in touch with her, she will quickly put your mind at ease and resolve whatever dispute you have rapidly.”
