I am an associate legal executive within the family law department in Sheffield. I have specialised in family matters since 1995, dealing with all aspects of family law which include: divorce, cohabitation issues, financial matters arising from separation, children disputes including acting for parents and grandparents, pre and post marital agreements, living together agreements, separation agreements and civil partnership disputes.
I remember at school having to prepare a Will document in one of my lessons and completely messing it up. I remember my teacher tearing it up in frustration and saying I was hopeless and would never be a lawyer. I was determined to prove her wrong!!
I really enjoy meeting people. I get satisfaction in finding a solution to what might appear to be a problem. All family cases are different and therefore each day of my working life is very different. My aim is always to ensure that a client leaves my office at the end of a case feeling they can move on with their life and it will be better than it was before they came into the office. I do think the main qualifications you should have to be a good family lawyer is patience, empathy and common sense (and obviously you need to know the law).
It has to be the working environment. Not only do we have fantastic offices it is good to work alongside other specialist lawyers. Dealing with family law there is often a need to seek other specialist help in respect of property issues, company, tax, employment etc. My clients don't need to employ experts outside the office - they are all here under one roof.
As a working mum I am always very busy but I like to find time to go out socially with my family and friends for a drink and a meal. Like most women I love shopping or a day at the spa and especially with my daughter.
I am a member of the Worrall Community Association and so organising the annual Gala in Worrall and other events keeps me busy.
