I have experience of representing clients in relation to children; in particular, arrangements between separated parents and their children, resolving issues of how often the non-resident parent has contact with the children and where the children should live.

I am a solicitor working in family law.

I also provide advice and assistance to clients who are separating or want to start divorce proceedings and the financial issues arising from relationship breakdown. I also assist those who wish to seek advice about the dissolution of civil partnerships.

I am a member of the firm’s domestic abuse team and have a keen interest in helping victims of domestic abuse, with experience of representing clients in relation to injunctions (known as non molestation orders and occupation orders).

I also provide specialist advice in relation to cohabitation disputes and the financial issues arising from this.

I understand how stressful and daunting it can be instructing a solicitor about relationship breakdowns and how important it is for you to instruct someone who has experience in the relevant areas who will listen and meet your needs. I will work to make sure that a difficult time in your life becomes easier by helping you to maintain as much control as possible over the end result. I will advise you about your options for resolving your problem and about other services to help you get through this stressful time.

I graduated from the University of Northumbria in 2006 after completing the Batchelor of Law (Exempting) Law Degree. Since graduating, I have worked as an immigration caseworker in London and then as a welfare benefits and debt advisor in Northumberland.

I am fluent in Punjabi.
