I am an Associate Solicitor based in the Birmingham office. I specialise in all aspects of family law including divorce, financial matters relating to divorce, and disputes relating to children. I also advise unmarried couples on the breakdown of their relationship.
I work closely with Mark Hands and Clare Wiseman, particularly in relation to high net worth finances, matters with an international element and complex children matters.
Through my work I have developed a particular interest in matters involving domestic abuse and honour based crimes. I have built a niche practice in these areas and lecture regularly on these topics alongside charities and the police.
I am a member of Resolution and committed to resolving matters constructively to achieve a family focused and cost effective solution for all clients where possible. Client care is at the heart of my practice. I pride myself on providing clear and concise advice, with pragmatism and empathy to ensure that my clients know they are in safe hands and supported.
Being a committee member of BPS Talent enables me to organise regular social, development and wellbeing events in Birmingham to bring professionals together outside of work, which is something I feel passionate about.
Away from the office, I enjoy going to the gym, spending time with friends and family, and squeezing in the occasional glass of wine.

"I have nothing but praise for this company and their solicitor Lucy Todd and her assistant Saffron Burgess. Right from the start the process of my case was clearly explained including the costs so there were no nasty surprises. Lucy and Saffron were kind and supportive throughout and very prompt especially when we were given a court date only a few days away. They were both very engaged in my case and worked very hard on my behalf. I do not think the service I received could be bettered anywhere else. I would highly recommend this firm of solicitors and would like to thank Lucy and Saffron for everything they did for me." - 5* Trustpilot review
