Expertise

In family law, I specialise in cases involving domestic violence not only in relation to securing protection for victims of domestic abuse but also where domestic abuse impacts upon issues concerning the children in that relationship. I also specialise in private law children cases such as residence and contact disputes and also with regard to specific issue orders concerning a child e.g. which school a child should attend and prohibited steps orders e.g. preventing the removal of a child from their carer, their home or the country.

Profile

I am a Litigation Executive. I have advised and assisted clients in the area of family law and divorce for several years. I gained considerable experience in family law for 11 years in a previous firm of solicitors in Croydon where I worked before moving to Amphlett Lissimore solicitors where I have continued to gain invaluable experience over the years having remained here since 1998. I have been very fortunate in that I have been permitted to practice in the particular areas of family law which I find most satisfying and rewarding where I feel I have been able to achieve my full potential. Much of my new work is from personal recommendations from previous clients and I receive many referrals from organisations with whom I have established close links with such as local women's refuges.

Outside work

I have a keen interest in animals, particularly dogs. I enjoy going on long walks in the countryside with my Border Collie dog. I also enjoy going to the theatre and socialising with family and friends.
