I am an associate solicitor in the Birmingham family law team. I have over 15 years' experience advising clients about all aspects of relationship breakdown. In particular, I specialise in financial matters upon divorce including cases where there are complex property structures, business assets, trusts, and complicated pension issues.
I hold specialist Resolution accreditation dealing with high-net-worth finances on divorce and relationship breakdown for unmarried couples and parents. As well as dealing with relationship breakdown, I am also a specialist in preparing cohabitation agreements and pre- and post-nuptial agreements to protect wealth and assets.
I have a wide range of experience in dealing with children matters and understand the need to deal with matters both sensitively and robustly.
I help people around the Midlands, including Birmingham and Solihull, and nationally, often after recommendations from previous or existing clients.
What inspired you to get into law?
I'm inspired by a desire to find solutions for clients who may be experiencing personal challenges due to a relationship breakdown.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
With an eye for detail and a forensic approach, I quickly grasp the issues at the heart of the matter and give pragmatic and commercial advice.
