I am an experienced family and civil law practitioner specialising in children law, both public and private as well as complex financial remedies arising out of divorce, and matters involving TOLATA.
In financial remedy proceedings I act for clients in cases across the spectrum, from those limited to need or with modest wealth to multi-million pound cases involving complex asset structures. My clients’ cases often involve business assets, investment properties, sizeable pensions and trusts as well as issues of post-separation earning, conduct, and inherited wealth, but may simply revolve around the marital home.
I regularly act for clients who were not married to their ex-partners and are in dispute about their former home.
My considerable experience encompasses cases involving children, including, in private law proceedings, removal from the jurisdiction, domestic violence and intractable hostility and, in public law proceedings, non-accidental injuries, chronic neglect and physical and emotional abuse.
I can act for you if your case involves allegations of domestic violence, and I have frequently represented people either seeking or opposing applications for non-molestation and occupation orders.
My clients value my ability to deal tactfully with delicate emotional situations, and appreciate my efforts to explain complex legal issues to people unfamiliar with the legal process. I aim to give you pragmatic and sensible advice so that you can take a long-term view of your situation and find a solution which, where possible, avoids the stress and expense of a long-running dispute. In the courtroom I have a reputation for persuasive advocacy and steadfast support of my clients.
I also have a broad civil practice and regularly appear in fast-track and multi-track trials. This civil practice includes housing law and cash and asset forfeiture proceedings.
