I appreciate that the breakdown of a personal relationship and sorting out what happens next are among the most stressful events an individual will go through in their life.
I aim to take as much of the stress and uncertainty out of the situation as possible by working closely with my clients to support them through the process whilst finding creative legal solutions for them. Frequently this will involve working with other professionals such as tax specialists, accountants and financial planners both here and overseas.
I try to resolve issues without the court becoming involved but sometimes this cannot be avoided. Regardless of how a case develops, I am able to advise and guide clients through the process in an efficient, unstuffy and jargon free way.
My specialisms are:
The intellectual challenge, Kavanagh QC and the fact I wasn’t good enough at science to be a pathologist.
Helping people move from a vulnerable and emotional time in their lives to being able to face the future with greater certainty and confidence.
I enjoy long walks with my dogs (2 Boxers), dispute resolution with my 2 daughters, discovering new places, most sports (sadly now more passive than active), reading (especially history and historical thrillers), music and new experiences.
I have written articles and been quoted in a number of publications including Solicitors Journal, Private Client Advisor and Sunday Express.
“This is the latest case to scrutinise the duration of spousal maintenance and demonstrates the shift towards maintenance being paid for as long as is needed for the recipient to adjust to independent living without causing undue hardship and no longer.”
“The duration of payments will depend on the facts of each case - and there will still be cases where long-term maintenance is appropriate - but greater consideration will be given to whether, and how quickly, the recipient can adjust to independent living without causing them undue hardship.”
