I am a family senior associate solicitor at the Morecrofts Allerton office. I began my legal career working in various areas of law, but family law is where my heart is.
I started as a legal assistant and then progressed to paralegal, trainee solicitor and qualified as a solicitor in 2009. I have since gone on to manage departments (head of family law) and train as a mediator. I have solely specialised in family law since 2007, particularly divorce and financial matters (including high net worth), co-habiting couples, same sex couples, children matters, grandparents’ rights and domestic abuse. I am also an advocate and represent clients at Court.
I have a wealth of knowledge in the above areas and understand how difficult it can be to seek advice and know your rights following very difficult and sensitive matters. My aim is to provide you with a clear plan of action; to be a listening ear and provide practical and confidential advice and assistance in order to resolve issues amicably. I am also a member of Resolution: First for Family Law.
