I have over fifteen years' experience in helping clients 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 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.
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!
