I studied for my undergraduate degree at the University of Keele and obtained my postgraduate degree in Legal Practice at the University of Staffordshire. I joined mosshaselhurst Solicitors in July 2007 following completion of my undergraduate degree and qualified as a Solicitor in April 2012. I became a Director in October 2016.
I am a Solicitor and the Head of the Family Law Team and have expertise and experience in advising on all aspects of family law, specifically:-
- Divorce and civil partnership dissolution,
- Financial issues arising out of divorce/dissolution,
- Cohabitation and pre and post marital agreements,
- Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements
- Disputes concerning children
I am a proud member of Resolution Specialist Family Lawyer which means that I work to resolve areas of dispute in a constructive and non-confrontational way. Wherever possible I aim to negotiate settlements outside of court, but will support and advise clients through litigated proceedings if necessary. Since August 2015, I have been an accredited specialist in Children Act Proceedings and Complex Financial Remedy Proceedings, gaining specialist status under the Resolution scheme through a robust independent assessment with demonstrates skills, expertise and knowledge.
I endeavour to provide clients with straightforward advice, whilst respecting that many people are experiencing a difficult stage in their lives when compassion and sensitivity are paramount. My Team and I offer a personable and emphatic approach and provide helpful communication from enquiry to completion. I can provide flexibility with appointments either in person or over the telephone and clarity of costs.
I aspired to be a lawyer from a young age and the driving force behind my ambition was to assist people about their rights and help them achieve fairness. I am proud of the good relationships I develop with clients which frequently leads to personal recommendations and repeat instructions for the practice. Family Law is enormously rewarding work.
Outside of work I have a keen interest in travelling, spending time with family and friends, sport and reading.
