I grew up in a farming environment in and around Mold, Flintshire before to attending the University of Manchester to study for a degree in American Studies. After graduating I then studied law at the College of Law, Christleton and I qualified as a solicitor in 1984. Since then I have gained a wealth of experience of many areas of the law in both private practice and in local government.
I am a Resolution accredited specialist in Family Law. Resolution is an organisation whose members are committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes. Members follow a Code of Practice that promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems and which encourages solutions that consider the needs of the whole family – and in particular the best interests of children.
I specialise in divorce cases, financial disputes following the breakdown of a relationship and children issues such as with whom they shall live with and how much contact they should have with the other parent or other family members.
In 2009 I was admitted to the Law Society’s Children Panel and I regularly represent parents, other family members and children in Care Proceedings in the Family Courts across North Wales, Chester and Liverpool.
In my spare time I enjoy playing football and badminton and engaging in other outdoor activities such as walking, cycling and gardening.
