I have been a family law specialist for over 25 years, spending about half this time working in central London, and then in the South West of England. I have acted for clients from Devon to Kent, in the Cotswolds and in or near London.

I have extensive experience in the financial aspects of marriage breakdown, and in pre- and post nuptial agreements, working generally, but not exclusively, for clients with larger assets and incomes. I also work with clients on private children issues, such as residence and relocation.

What inspired you to get into law? 

I wanted a career which would combine both working with and helping people, with using analytical skills to achieve the best result possible.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role? 

I like working with clients to achieve the best and fairest outcome for them. I also enjoy the forensic analysis part of my job, deciding how best to deploy the facts, figures and the law in each case.

What do you do away from the office? 

I enjoy being with my family and friends, skiing, walking, gardening and being out and about in my husband’s small boat in Poole Harbour.
