I specialise in family and collaborative law. I have a particular interest and experience of dealing with divorce and related financial cases including complex and/or large money cases. My cases include a significant proportion where there are large pensions, complex assets, trusts, businesses, properties/assets in other countries.
I understand that family problems can be traumatic and I work hard for my clients to support them through the legal process.
I know how important it is to be able to have a relaxed, sympathetic, understanding whilst professional relationship with my clients to help them through difficult times. My clients appreciate my organised, efficient and straight talking style. I promote a constructive and practical approach in family cases, seeking if possible agreed solutions between the parties. I am not however adverse to taking a firm stance if necessary.
I am a member of Resolution, Family Law Accreditation Scheme and a Collaborative Lawyer.
I graduated from the University of Leicester with a LL.B (Hons) in Law in 1997. I joined the Firm in 2003 and became a Partner in April 2010 and Director in 2015 when the firm incorporated. I was brought up and educated locally and am proud to be a Director in a firm so close to my roots. I pride myself in providing a good service to the local community.
Out of the office, I am the Secretary of the Eastleigh Spitfires WI and am very much enjoying this new challenge.
