I have worked as a family lawyer and mediator for over 20 years, and as a collaborative lawyer since 2006, representing a diverse range of clients.
As a member of Resolution, a national body of family lawyers, I am committed to resolving matters arising on separation in a non-confrontational way for the benefit of the whole family.
With my experience in private practice, I can provide all the information and guidance about the divorce process and legislation governing financial settlements that couples require. My knowledge of the way Courts deal with disputes is invaluable in helping to structure settlements.
I am qualified to mediate either alone or with a fellow mediator, depending on what best suits your circumstances. I can also carry out MIAMs (Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings). I have completed advanced mediation training and able also able to offer a hybrid mediation model which includes working with lawyers in the process.
I recognise that mediation is not the right process for everyone and I am able to work on your behalf as your lawyer if this is more appropriate.
Please keep yourselves safe during the current coronavirus threat. During this period I will be offering MIAMs by video call and substantive mediation in appropriate cases.
