I am a 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.
