As a family law specialist, I primarily help to bring legal stability to those that are suffering the impacts of relationship breakdown, whether a marriage, civil partnership or cohabitation.

I advise on the fair division of financial assets, and any matters that affect children. I also offer specialist advice on resolving cohabitation disputes.


  • Applications under the Children Act in respect of the day to day arrangements for children.
  • Assisting parties, married or unmarried to reach an amicable financial settlement, to include provision for children, where appropriate.
  • Representing individuals where their spouse or Civil Partner have attempted to hide assets, which have been found through close scrutiny of the Spouse or Civil Partner’s financial disclosure or making necessary applications to the Court.
  • Successfully defending a Respondent in the High Court, which involved the release of his assets from a worldwide freezing Order.


  • Qualified in 2008
  • Member of Resolution
