I have over 20 years’ experience within family law and have dealt with the full breadth of family matters, having worked for the local authority and in private practice.
I’m not your usual stereotypical lawyer. I set up on my own so that I could focus on giving my customers the levels of service they need during what is usually a stressful time in their life. I don’t confuse my clients with legal jargon, I make sure that they understand exactly what things mean so that they feel empowered to move forward. I make sure that I fully understand each client’s unique issues so that I can effectively represent them.
I’m a member of the organisation ‘Resolution’. This is a group of family lawyers and other professionals committed to the constructive approach to family disputes. Effectively, I encourage solutions that consider the needs of the whole family and the best interests of any children.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family; my three boys certainly keep me busy! I take them to rugby, football or stunt parks, and we love to visit Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire – where they give me heart failure as they jump across gullies 20 feet in height and scale rocks that would take their lives should they slip (we enjoy such relaxing days out)!
I also like to upcycle second-hand furniture I find at vintage fairs and charity shops. I can often be found petting our bearded dragon (green lizard).
