I didn’t choose a career in family law - it chose me. I absolutely love people and work really hard to support clients involved in a family or marital breakdown reach a resolution that is right for them so that they can move on with their lives positively. Family law is an area which naturally suits my skills and I feel privileged to be able to provide support to people during times of difficulty.
I really find the emotional aspect enriching and place value on these skills. I have undertaken a basic counselling course to better understand the impact upon clients and to further refine my skills as an empathetic and supportive advisor. Personal relationships are incredibly important to me. In terms of family law expertise, I advise my clients going through divorce, the splitting of financial assets, giving wealth protection advice and cohabitation issues for unmarried couples.
I also provide advice on domestic abuse issues. An important aspect of a successful family separation is in dealing with children issues sensitively, practically with a child focused approach to ensure a solid foundation for positive co-parenting in the future. I am committed to finding amicable solutions where possible but I am tenacious and unafraid to litigate when this is in my client’s best interests.
I’m called upon by national publications to comment on matrimonial issues, recently cited in Huffpost about how to make co-parenting work during Covid lockdown
