What can I help you with?

I can advise you about the financial consequences of divorce and relationship breakdown. I have a growing practice in advising parents in private law children cases, particularly for parents who live abroad, wish to travel or move abroad.

My approach is straightforward and robust. I work hard to understand what you want to achieve, providing valuable, clear advice that puts you at the centre of the decision-making.

Example(s) of some recent work

  • Ongoing advice to a father in complex children proceedings involving parental alienation, keeping the focus on the child throughout. My approach is constructive and positive, but I’ve taken decisive action when needed, working very hard for the client to exceed his expectations.
  • Achieving at a final hearing a positive outcome for a farming client who’s marriage was relatively short and his farm was inherited from his father.
  • Negotiating a favourable agreement for an international client who, prior to instructing me, had attempted without success to reach a settlement for nearly 10 years.

What do others say about me?

I’ve been listed as an "Associate to Watch" by Chambers and Partners for the last two years and Legal 500 has named me a “Rising Star”. I was also named in Citywealth’s Future Leaders Top 100 2019.

What else should you know?

I play rugby for York Women's RUFC (that means “proper” rugby, not touch!). For those that play, they will know that rugby is the world’s greatest leveller!

I am a big advocate of volunteering and giving back to your local community. I am a trustee of a large domestic abuse charity.
