Memberships: Sandra is also a member of the Law Society Advanced Family Panel and is a Collaborative lawyer.

The collaborative approach is fundamentally changing the way people think of family law.  For couples who genuinely seek a fair solution, and want to minimise the pain of family breakdown, it may offer an alternative way forward.  The collaborative approach means the couple sit down, and with the help of their own solicitors, all together in the same room, they work it out, face to face.  Rather than dealing through their solicitors, the couple works with them, to reach the best solutions for themselves and their family.  Collaborative lawyers are committed to helping their clients find the best solution by agreement, rather than conflict.  For more information please contact Sandra or visit

Leisure: Sandra spends her spare time enjoying time with her family, gardening and reading.
