I have over fifteen years' experience in helping clients in the Southampton area with their family law problems.
The first area I help with is relationship breakdown. This includes:
- Cohabitation separation
- Child arrangements
- Financial remedy
- Domestic abuse.
The second area I help with is relationship planning. This includes:
- Pre-nuptial agreements
- Post-nuptial agreements
- Cohabitation agreements
- Parenting plans.
I have additional qualifications as a resolution-accredited specialist in both child arrangements and domestic abuse. I am also a qualified mediator.
I joined Irwin Mitchell in October 2019, having worked as a Partner and Head of the Family team at another local South coast firm.
What inspired you to get into law?
I have always been a problem solver. Family law allows me to work with clients to find the best-possible solution to their most personal difficulties.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Seeing the change in clients as they evolve from a real low point to actively looking forward to opportunities or living a new life.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
The ethos of being the expert hand with the human touch is our genuine way of working. I think that's really positive for both us and our clients.
My team now covers the South coast region with offices in Chichester, Southampton and Gatwick. This allows us to offer our expert family law services to a much wider area which is fantastic.
What do you do away from the office?
I love live performances and try to go to something at least once a month. I have an eclectic taste so this could be stand-up, opera, theatre or live music. My absolute passion is rock music, and I am a rock chick at heart!
