What can Stephanie do for you?

Stephanie is an experienced family lawyer who advises clients on a range of family law matters, with a keen interest in complex financial cases involving family businesses and company interests. Stephanie also has a wealth of expertise in giving advice to clients to help settle on arrangements and financial provision for children.

Not only can Stephanie help when a relationship breaks down, but Stephanie has lots of experience advising on relationship planning. Stephanie is regularly instructed to prepare and advise on pre and post marital agreements, often for those looking to protect inter-generational family wealth and for clients with international links.

Supporting your ambitions

Stephanie is adept at understanding what is really important to each individual client, delivering a bespoke service and tailoring her approach to ensure the best possible client experience, helping clients through the range of legal, emotional and practical issues that arise after separation. With a carefully selected network of experts at her disposal to facilitate additional support and advise on related issues, and total dedication to resolving issues constructively, Stephanie is a safe pair of hands.

On the relationship planning side Stephanie will put clients at ease when broaching, exploring and discussing sensible solutions for protecting clients (and often their wider family, too) from the vast uncertainty which can arise in the unfortunate event of a relationship breaking down in the future. Stephanie is considered a "go to" for advice and support in relation to marital agreements. 

What do others say?

“Steph went above and beyond to make the whole process smooth, informative and thorough. She instantly made me feel at ease…”

“Steph has always been there when I needed her... She also adopted a practical approach, giving me advice on the way forward and challenging my thinking when needed. Alongside this Stephanie is really likable and I’d have no hesitation in recommending her.”

“Steph was empathetic, understanding and positive right when I needed it at the beginning of my divorce... [She] always explained everything clearly and thoroughly which was really needed at a time of haze and uncertainty.”

What else should you know?

Stephanie holds Resolution Specialist Accreditation for work in complex financial and children cases.

Stephanie is qualified in collaborative law meaning she can represent clients wishing to resolve issues via supported negotiation and transparent advice, rather than court.

Stephanie has published articles discussing how crypto assets are dealt with in divorce and enjoys keeping an eye on this ever evolving topic.
