I joined the family team in April 2019 as a Partner of the firm. I have worked exclusively in family law since qualifying over 14 years ago and have significant experience in dealing with all aspects of family law including divorce, financial claims arising out of the breakdown of a relationship, pre and post nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements and dissolution of civil partnerships. I also have significant experience in relation to children matters.
It is of utmost importance to me that my clients feel that they are being supported during what is undoubtedly an incredibly difficult time for them. With complex and delicate issues at hand regarding finances, relationships and parental rights and responsibilities, resolving family matters can be very stressful however I aim to try and make the process as smooth as possible. Previous editions of the Legal 500 publication refer to me as an “exceptional lawyer” who “provides excellent service, looks after clients and helps them to be positive”.
I am a member of Resolution and have been a member of the local Resolution committee group for the past 7 years. I am also a trained collaborative lawyer.
I am based between the Melton and Ipswich offices but available to clients at all offices.
