Since qualifying over 14 years ago I have offered advice and assistance to clients in all areas of family law including divorce, separation, finances and children matters. I have substantial experience with helping clients from diverse backgrounds. Whether you have limited assets, or have a large investment or business portfolio, have been in a relationship for a long or short time, or need assistance with a divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership, I can help.
Family disputes are a difficult and emotional time for all involved. I make it my priority to focus my service on your individual needs and ensure that the service I provide is supportive, sensitive and discreet. I will always take the time to get to know you, and your family requirements, and tailor a solution to meet your needs.
I am fully trained in both traditional and collaborative law processes. That means I can offer you more choice over how your family law matters are handled - and how much Court involvement there needs to be.
Collaborative law is becoming more popular as it is a very cost effective way of avoiding the need to go to Court. You still need to have your own solicitor, but instead of conducting negotiations by correspondence, you meet face to face with your former partner to resolve your issues, with me by your side guiding you through the legal issues and offering you advice and assistance as you go.
Of course, this process is not appropriate for everyone, and I can still guide you through more complicated matters in the traditional manner, however as a member of Resolution, the organisation that brings together collaboratively trained solicitors, even in circumstances where collaborative law is not appropriate for your case, I will seek to promote a non-confrontational approach to resolving your family law disputes.
In addition to being registered with the Law Society, I have received further accreditation from them. This means that the work I carry out has been certified to be of a high standard – not all solicitors have this quality mark.
