“I am very pleased to join the family law team at J A Hughes and especially to have the opportunity to undertake my training with Sandra Horwood. I am looking forward to helping those who find themselves in stressful circumstances by providing essential support and the best possible legal advice.
Where couples are going through a relationship breakdown, I am dedicated to helping them to find fair and amicable solutions, especially when children are involved. Mediation is a rewarding way to help couples make the transition to separation and to start a new chapter in their lives.”
