I am a Chartered Legal Executive specializing in Family Law.  I qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Legal Executives in 2008.

Work Experience

I have worked in family law for many years and worked whilst training gaining experience of all aspects of family law.  As a Chartered Legal Executive for 13  years  I have dealt with a varied caseload including from the start of a relationship in preparing Co-Habitation Agreements and Pre-Nuptial Agreements, and when relationships break down advising on separation,  Divorce, Dissolution and negotiating financial settlements.  I also advise on matters relating to children, and help to resolve disputes around arrangements for children and representation through the Courts where matters cannot be agreed.

External Mentions

I am a member of Resolution which is an organization for family professionals who abide by their code of conduct to work in a non confrontational manner,   narrowing issues and working towards settlement in an amicable way.   Where matters cannot be settled, I represent clients through the Court process, continuing negotiations to conclusion.

I have worked at Waldrons for 11 years in the private family law department.  Waldrons has a full range of other services which complement my clients to provide an all round service.  I have a good working relationship with local IFA’s.

Personal Info

I am a Committee Member of Stourbridge Swimming Club and spend many hours involved in swimming galas across the region.     

I have developed a fast growing interest in Formula 1 racing, from my family, and have a genuine desire to improve my sewing and piano playing.  I love to walk along the beach on a cold windy day to blow away the cobwebs.
