My practice has been established since 1991. I began my career as a health professional, but fulfilled a lifelong ambition to become a barrister after studying law at Exeter University, gaining a Masters degree in International Business Legal Studies.
The main areas of my practice are Civil Law and Personal Injury, where I represent clients in small claims, fast and multi-track trials. I represent both Claimants and Defendants, who may be individuals or companies.
I also act in all areas of Family Law, including applications under the Family Law Act 1996, and I am willing to attend court at short notice, especially in cases involving domestic violence. My specialism is particularly in Public and Private Children cases, mainly instructed by parents, but I have also been instructed by Guardians. I also specialise in divorce and matrimonial finance, where I have particular expertise in securing assets for parents who have care of their child/ren.
I think it’s my wealth of experience – combining life experience, (I have a young family of my own), my former career in Health and my experience within the arena of law – that enables me to take such a holistic perspective on your situation and your case. That’s what gives me a reputation for being realistic and honest with my clients and for getting the best possible results, including through negotiations where necessary.
