After obtaining an M.Phil in Criminology from Trinity Hall, Cambridge, I qualified as a solicitor in 1995 and worked for Wedlake Bell. Before joining Gordon Dadds in 2013, I was partner and head of the family team at Rooks Rider.
I have worked exclusively in family law for over 20 years and have experience advising on all aspects of private family work. I hold particular expertise in the financial consequences of divorce and am interested in Leave to Remove cases.
