I am a partner and head of the family team with 25 years’ experience in family law.
I am passionate about helping my clients move on to where they want to be in their lives. I act for people from all walks of life, giving clear outcome-focused advice that enables them to make the best decisions in their divorce or separation.
I also write and advise on prenuptial, postnuptial, cohabitation and separation agreements.
I regularly act for people in disputes over children as well as advising on cases involving domestic violence and abuse.
I count myself fortunate in having a job I genuinely love. Even though the circumstances of many of the cases I work on are challenging, I find something very positive in helping people get through, what is often, the darkest part of their life and find their better future.
