About me:

I am partner and Head of the Family department. I take pride in giving tailored, practical advice to clients which focuses on their issues. I’ll always explore all the options, looking for ways which avoid costly and unnecessary litigation.

I am collaboratively trained which is an alternative approach to dealing with separation and divorce and focuses on resolving issues without going to court. I will always try to help clients resolve issues in a collaborative and constructive way, guiding them towards civil resolution of their issues with former partners.

I am also a Governor at Alderley Edge Primary School.
