I am an associate solicitor specialising in all areas of private family law work.
I am experienced in dealing with financial matters, from modest asset to high-net-worth cases. I specialize in cases with hidden or non-disclosed assets, and have acted in many cases where these have been found after the original order.
If possible, I try to settle cases at an early stage to ensure my clients receive the maximum benefit from their settlement. Of course, Court proceedings are often required, and I take a strategic and analytical approach to ensure that a settlement is reached as soon as it is right to do so. Whatever each client’s situation may be, I am committed to fighting for the best outcome possible for all of my clients.
I am also experienced in dealing with private children matters and applications for financial provision for an unmarried parent.
I work very closely with Ros Bever and Nathaniel Groarke, especially on high net worth finances, matters with an international element and complex children matters.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
The law, and litigation in particular, always presents a new challenge. I thrive on finding solutions to new problems, and it is brilliant to be able to help others through doing so.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Making a difference to someone’s future – family law often touches people’s lives when they are feeling vulnerable. It’s my job to help people find a solution and to put them at ease moving forward.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I am a huge ice hockey fan and can usually be found at an ice rink on a Saturday night. In warmer climates, I can usually be found scuba diving and I am a keen underwater photographer.
