I am a bilingual Family Law Solicitor and speak Arabic fluently. I have been with Irwin Mitchell since I finished my Law Degree and qualified as a Solicitor with the firm in 2022. I deal with all aspects of family law including divorce, financial settlements and child arrangements.
I have a particular interest in Islamic divorce and specifically the cultural aspect of divorce and child arrangements within Arab and Asian communities. My personal understanding of the nuances within the communities allows me to provide my clients with holistic support throughout the proceedings and to consider things such as mehr, wedding jewellery and child arrangements for Ramadan, Eid and other religious holidays.
I have experience in dealing with international matters across the Middle East and Asia and have built a network of contacts of experienced lawyers within jurisdictions across the world.
I approach matters with empathy and understand that the types of matters I deal with can often be the most stressful time for my clients. I aim to ensure that they are supported in all aspects and strive to achieve their goal.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
Reading Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird inspired me to look into a career in law in which I can seek justice and fairness.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Knowing that this isn’t just the end of a relationship, but the start of a new life for my client; one that I can be a part of and help prepare my client for.
What Do You Like About Working For Irwin Mitchell?
Being a part of the Religious and Cultural Team of Excellence at Irwin Mitchell allows me to work on my niche practice in advising families from Asian and Arab communities and share my personal understanding of their situation.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Although I enjoy travelling to hot countries, I love to ice skate and if I’m not working, or travelling, you’re very likely to catch me at the very cold rink!

I appreciate all the details of what is expected and would like to give a special thanks to Sarah for the call. You were very calm, patient, understanding and empathetic which I really appreciated. - RK, Client
The solicitor I saw was friendly but yet professional and explained everything to me in clear understandable language. As a result, I felt that I could ask any question, without being judged. The solicitor I saw today was also very flexible in allowing me to hone in on my own particular queries, but also advising what other areas she could help me with if I wished to discuss them.
The solicitor also signposted me to other potentially relevant services within Irwin Mitchell which could be helpful. She asked me what areas I wanted to cover and focused on those. She allowed me to return to points that I needed to recheck and patiently answered all those. I was given the opportunity to come back to ask any further questions after the consultation. I would definitely recommend Irwin Mitchell. - 5* Trustpilot Review
