I'm an Associate in the Chichester office specialising in Family Law. I have extensive experience in helping families with financial disputes after a separation or divorce. I’ve also dealt with extremely complex matters involving children, such as contact disputes where children have had to be represented separately. I also draft prenuptial and post nuptial agreements and separation agreements.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I wanted a career where I could use my skills to help people and be challenged at the same time. Family Law particularly interested me as I enjoy finding solutions to complex problems.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

It's rewarding to see how my client's emotions improve after a difficult divorce or separation. Knowing that I've achieved settlements for them to help them move forward with their lives is very fulfilling.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes on family and friends. I also enjoy Pilates, travel and theatre.
