I joined Chambers in 2010, and have since established a busy common law practice. Before joining Chambers I practiced as a Solicitor Advocate for three years.
My clients particularly value both my detailed case preparation as well the pragmatic advice I provide, which enables them to make informed decisions. I also have a reputation for skilled and carefully considered advocacy.
I have particular expertise in the civil arena including contractual disputes, landlord and tenant matters, and property and trust disputes, including contested probate matters acting for clients ranging from individuals to large commercial organisations. I have comprehensive experience of both fast and multi-track proceedings.
Within family law I specialise in cohabitation (TOLATA) and matrimonial finance proceedings, with particular experience of acting in cases involving children, including applications brought under Schedule 1 of the Children Act 1989.
I work hard to support vulnerable clients and those who find it difficult to undertake legal proceedings. I have experience of working with interpreters or other intermediaries as necessary to help you overcome any communication barriers you may have.
I am known as a diligent, hard-working advocate and have a reputation for providing frank and realistic advice. My previous experience as a Solicitor Advocate enables me to gain a rounded perspective on cases and to advise you on the necessary legal preparation for your case.
I also frequently provide CPD accredited seminars to advise solicitors in civil and family law.
