"She is a safe pair of hands and has a good bedside manner"
(The Legal 500, 2023)

I am a partner at Amphlett Lissimore and head of the family law department. I specialise in all areas of private family law. This includes, but is not limited to, divorce - including same sex marriages/civil partnership dissolutions, annulments, advising on religious divorces, and the financial aspects of the same. I frequently draft pre and post-nuptial agreements with significant assets. In addition, I can advise in respect of children matters, whether this relates to contact disputes, financial claims for children, abduction or relocation cases.

I am able to act expeditiously if there is a need to apply to the court to freeze assets or obtain protection from domestic violence. The majority of my cases involve an international element, businesses, issues of a complex nature, and are high net worth.

I am an approachable and friendly lawyer who is resolution focused. I am known as someone who is extremely empathetic towards each client’s individual needs and circumstances, and has a strong technical ability. My approach is to always try and reach a swift resolution, in the most cost-efficient manner for my clients.

I am a Resolution Accredited Family Law Specialist in cohabitation law, financial claims for children (Schedule 1), and medium-high net worth divorce cases. I pride myself in being client focused; providing a bespoke service tailored to meet my client's needs. I have acted for clients who have had incomes over £1.5m, assets up to £20m, and pensions over £2m.
