I am a recognised expert in my field, having practised family law for 24 years in the areas of private and publicly funded ancillary relief, children matters, co-habitation, divorce, and domestic violence within the jurisdiction of the County Court, Family Proceedings Court, High Court and Court of Appeal in cases involving issues within and outside of the EU.
I have substantial experience in acting for clients with complex business and financial issues and assets based both domestically and internationally. I have established experience in dealing with complex children matters, including care proceedings. I’m accredited with Resolution as a specialist Family Lawyer in Ancillary relief and children cases.
I trained with Townsends, where I remained upon qualification eventually becoming an Associate and Legal Aid Franchise Supervisor. I joined Thomas Graham as an Associate and Head of the Family Department, before becoming a Partner and Head of Family at Thomas Simon in 2007, and joining Gordon Dadds in 2018.
