I qualified as a solicitor in 2002, having previously qualified as a legal executive in 1990 and passed additional law diplomas through ILEX to gain exemption from the law degree qualification stage. I worked in a high street general practice from 1987, having gained a wide experience in a broad range of clients’ problems.
I have an interest in mental health work and became a member of the Law Society’s Mental Health Panel, representing clients at Mental Health Review Tribunals, before deciding to specialise in family work.
My main areas of work are now:
I am passionate about my work and provides a personal, practical, professional and sympathetic service to my clients. My aim is to encourage clients to settle matters out of court whenever possible, but I am always prepared to take a tough stance with opponents when necessary. I undertake much of my own advocacy work, including Family Dispute Resolutions and Final Contested hearings.
I work with accountants, financial advisers and actuaries to achieve the best outcome for my clients.
When not working, I like to go to the gym and spend time with family and friends.
