What can you do for me?

I can help you deal with the numerous issues caused by a breakdown in a relationship. I am a specialist family solicitor and mediator and advise on a full range of issues arising out of family and relationship breakdown. This includes financial settlements arising out of divorce or separation, variation applications, enforcement and injunctions. I have particular experience of cases involving family businesses, trusts, pensions and those with complex or international assets.

I advise on all issues arising out of arrangements for children including where a child will live, how much time they spend with each parent and relocating abroad. I have experience of cases involving domestic violence and abuse of alcohol and drugs.

I also provide wealth protection advice including pre- and post-marital agreements and cohabitation agreements.

What makes you different from other divorce lawyers?

Every relationship breakdown is unique and each client has different needs and priorities. It is vital that the advice you receive is tailored to you and your specific circumstances. I work hard from the outset of your case to understand your situation and ensure I know what is important to you so that I am able to provide a bespoke solution.

I am a trained family mediator and able to facilitate discussions between parties and assist you in reaching your own solution outside of the court process. It can be a real benefit to clients to be able to maintain an amicable relationship even after the relationship has broken down.

As a large national firm we are able to provide you with advice and support across numerous areas of the law. We have recognised experts in complimentary areas such as tax, wills and private wealth and will be able to provide you with a complete legal service.

What do your clients say about you?

I was listed in the Thomson Reuters ‘London Super Lawyers’ list 2015 as a rising star and client’s frequently praise my calm and reassuring manner. 

I am delighted to be part of the family team at Mills & Reeve, which is rated as first tier for family law in the leading independent legal directories Chambers UK and Legal 500.

"Stellar team which frequently deals with some of the largest and most substantial cases in the market. Well versed in both litigation and ADR" and "They are first-rate - there is no question about that." (Chambers UK 2016). 

Mills & Reeve LLP is "first rate, focused and decisive, and its client care is second to none" with an "efficient, bright" team. (Legal 500 2015). 

What else should I know about you?

I am a member of Resolution and sat on the YRES committee in Surrey from 2010 to 2016. I wholeheartedly support the principles of Resolution and I am committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes.

Outside of the office I enjoy watching and playing numerous sports and have recently started piano lessons.
