I joined Battens as a trainee solicitor in September 2014 and qualified as a solicitor into the Family Team in September 2016.
The Family Department at Battens undertakes both legal aid and privately paying work, including divorce, finances and children matters. I am currently based between the Yeovil and Sherborne offices, though I frequently travel to the other offices to see clients and will often represent clients at courts across Dorset and Somerset.
I currently practice all areas of Family law, though I have worked predominantly in Public Law matters involving the Local Authority throughout my training contract, representing parents whose children are subject to Care Proceedings.
In my free time, I enjoy getting down to the beach and going home to Wales to see my family as often as I can.
