About me:

I have specialised in family law since I qualified as a solicitor. I am a member of Resolution and committed to helping clients resolve family disputes in a constructive manner. Sensitive to the needs of clients I aim to provide realistic advice with a calm approach.

Key cases:

  • On one matter I acted for a mother seeking to relocate with her child outside of the jurisdiction and successfully obtained the courts permission for her to do son
  • Acting for a mother in a matter where significant domestic abuse had been disclosed by the children and obtaining orders to safeguard the children in her care
  • Acted for a father and successfully obtained enforcement orders including orders for the mother to pay financial compensation and orders for unpaid work
  • Acting for a wife in financial order proceedings and obtaining a substantive order in her favour as the husband failed to comply with court orders and provide full financial disclosure

Professional membership:

My top tip:

Resolving family disputes is stressful and it is important to try and focus on what is important in the long term.
