I am a solicitor specialising in family law. My work includes all areas of family law, however I have a particular interest in cases over the arrangements for children, whether these be care proceedings and child protection work or issues between parents.  In addition, I undertake Court of Protection work.

I also advise on divorce and financial cases involving married couples.

I understand how stressful these matters can be and I am able to provide an empathetic, tailored service to each of our clients. I continually strive to achieve the best possible outcome, whilst ensuring I provide honest, realistic advice.

I am also an accredited mental health solicitor and am able to advice and represent clients detained in hospital under the Mental Health Act or assist them with other legal issues.

I graduated from Northumbria University in July 2013 obtaining a 1st class degree in law along with completion of the Legal Practice Course. I carried out my training at David Gray Solicitors gaining experience in the property, crime, family and mental health departments and qualified as a solicitor in April 2017.
