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.

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.
