Miscellaneous Information



Languages Spoken



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:

  • divorce
  • financial orders (ancillary relief cases), especially complex cases
  • private law children work.

Previous Cases

  • Complex farming cases involving trust issues and third party interveners;
  • Disputes involving businesses and companies;
  • Cases involving issues of non-disclosure;
  • Cohabitation cases under TOLATA 1996;
  • Pre-nuptial and Separation Agreements;
  • Children matters - disputes between parents;
  • Special Guardianship Applications for grandparents when care proceedings are involved.

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.

Other Interests

When not working, I like to go to the gym and spend time with family and friends.
