I originally began my legal life in 1996, qualifying as a fellow to the Institute of Legal Executives in 2002 and as a solicitor in 2006.
I have over 10 years’ experience working in family law in Dorset, dealing with:
- Children cases (including disputes between parents/extended family members and cases involving children’s services)
- Domestic abuse cases
- Divorce and separation
- Advising on financial issues arising from divorce/separation
Such cases often involve dealing with vulnerable clients or sensitive situations. I pride myself on the sympathetic and straightforward approach I take in dealing with my clients.
I have built up a good reputation in the local area over a number of years and am a proud member of Resolution. I recognise the importance of good communication to resolve issues for the benefit of my clients.
I continue to take an active part in my local community, having previously been a governor at a local school and taking part in, and sometimes leading, community initiatives in my local area.
I enjoy listening to live music, reading, photography, being an active triathlon supporter (and on one occasion even taking part!) and spending time with family and friends.
