My role and experience:
I am a Consultant Solicitor in the Family Team. I am a family lawyer with over 20 years experience, having been a partner in a leading Berkshire firm before setting up my own firm in Twickenham. I deal with divorce and separation, financial issues, and children’s matters either by traditional solicitor based negotiation or Court based representation.
My specific experience:
I see clients at the start of their journey when they are thinking about or have just separated. They are understandably upset and distressed, but I help them make the important decisions, regain control of their lives and once their issues have been resolved, I find great satisfaction in helping them move into the next phase of their lives.
My area of expertise:
I have a specific interest in dispute resolution, having achieved Senior Mediator Status and trained as a Collaborative Family Lawyer. I help couples work together with respect and dignity, to achieve a fair outcome, both in mediation and my collaborative practice.
My involvement with the community and associations:
I am a member of the Law Society Family Law Panel and I am an experienced and accredited Mediator with the Family Mediators Association. I am also a member of Resolution and adopt a non-adversarial approach to resolving family disputes. I am competent to undertake Mediation Assessment and Information Meetings. I am a founding member and Treasurer of Thameside Collaborative Lawyers and the Thameside Collaborative Community, bringing together Family Consultants, Financial Advisors, and Lawyers.
I am a regular volunteer with the CAB, helping clients with Family Law problems who no longer have access to public funding;
