I am experienced in dealing with a wide range of family law issues but my particular specialities are in complex financial cases involving married and unmarried relationships and also children cases where there is social services department involvement

I am a specialist family solicitor with over 13 years experience in all areas of family law.

I am conscious people who come to  see me for advice are at one of the most difficult times in their lives. I am committed to providing firm and realistic advice to all clients, listening to what they want and hope to happen. I believe it is important to approach your case with the understanding that different people have different priorities and will take the time to understand what is most important to you. I will aim to find the best possible solutions to the issues you are facing quickly and effectively, whether outside or within the court process.

I am a member of Resolution, the family lawyers organisation committed to the non-confrontational resolution of family disputes. I am accredited as a specialist by Resolution in the areas of cohabitation law and advanced financial provision, and am a Resolution trained Collaborative Family Lawyer. I give particular importance to the interests and welfare of any children of the family.

I studied modern history at Oxford University before taking post-graduate law qualifications at Northumbria University. I qualified as a solicitor in June 2001.
