What can I do for you?

I am a senior associate in our family law team. This means my work predominantly involves advising on the breakdown of a marriage and the often complex financial arrangements that follow. However, given our changing attitudes to marriage, I also have a growing practice advising clients who are unmarried and living together.

Whether married or otherwise I also advise on child related family work.

I am praised for my approachable nature and my client care. I provide practical clear advice and have a determined and no nonsense approach.

Why do I do this work?

Those who know me will say I am undoubtedly passionate about what I do. I am committed to working with my clients to achieve an outcome that is not only fair but is tailored to them and their family. No one size fits all and it’s important that as your adviser I listen to you and identify what is important to you at the outset, in what is often a very turbulent and emotional time of your life. Guiding you out of this turmoil is what I find most rewarding.

What else should you know?

Before relocating to Yorkshire, I practised in Birmingham and still have strong connections to the region.

I am a member of Resolution and I am Chair of our regional Young Resolution Committee. Resolution is an organisation of over 5,000 family lawyers at the heart of which is a code of conduct requiring us to deal with family cases constructively.

I am a firm believer in the importance of volunteering and community engagement. I am a Non-Executive Director of a domestic abuse charity and have undertaken a number of local volunteer roles.
