I have specialised in all areas of Family Law for over 25 years, particularly covering Financial Remedy, Public Law Children Act cases and Private Law Children cases.
If you need help with a financial remedy case (ie dealing with your financial arrangements as part of your divorce) my far-reaching experience covers everything from multi-million pound cases involving complex assets structures to the particular challenges facing low-income families.
I regularly represent parents, grandparents and children in Care and Adoption, Residence and Contact Order proceedings, as well as acting in cases where one or other parent wants to take their child/ren abroad. I am particularly experienced in handling cases involving abuse or neglect and where either parents or children have disabilities.
My clients value my sensible and realistic advice, appreciating the way that I work with them to reach their desired outcome. Although I aim to reach a resolution through negotiation where possible, I also have a reputation for being a persuasive and forceful advocate in Court where required.
I am also a qualified family mediator undertaking mediations relating to either financial or children issues, and a qualified family arbitrator.
