Department: Family & Matrimonial and Litigation Teams
Hello, I joined the firm in 2003 after previously working in Manchester, Merseyside and in Chester. I have over 25 years of experience in family law and am Head of the Family Department.
Like the rest of my team, I am an active member of Resolution (a group of specialised family lawyers) and the local Cheshire Collaborative Law Group. I am collaboratively trained, which means that if the case is suitable I am happy to deal with it on a collaborative basis as an alternative to resolving matters through the Courts. I specialise and have particular expertise in:
- Collaborative Family Law
- Matrimonial law in high value financial disputes involving business and trust assets
- Complex cases concerning children.
My reputation has been built on keeping Clients supported and empowered through the difficult period of relationship breakdown. My personable, understanding approach and sense of humour means I build excellent relationships with my Clients. Often we remain in touch after conclusion of their case. Most of my Clients are recommended to me by either existing or previous Clients, their friends or by professional contacts.
Away from the office my two children, husband and dogs keep me busy whilst my friends keep me sane.
