How can we help?
The breakdown of family relationships is often an emotional time. I aim to support my clients throughout to allow them to move forward in a positive way. I listen to them to gain a proper understanding of what they want. I give clear, realistic advice. My clients can be confident that I will give them a voice and try to achieve the best possible outcome for them. I aim to make clients feel at ease, I am friendly and approachable.
I am a solicitor in the family team based in our South Shields office, but I also see clients in our Newcastle office. I have over 20 years experience dealing exclusively in family law.
I have a wide-ranging knowledge and experience of family law, which makes me a well-respected solicitor in the region. The majority of my clients come via personal recommendations.
In recent years I have become very interested in resolving family disputes in a more balanced and respectful way bringing both parties together to discuss their differences without involving the court in the process known as collaborative law.
I am a specialist in cases involving financial matters and pensions. I also deal with cases involving arrangements for children , which can include where they live and how much time they spend with each parent or grandparent.
I have been a management committee member for South Tyneside Women’s Aid ( a charity providing accommodation and support for women and children fleeing domestic abuse) since first becoming a solicitor.
