I’m a Partner and specialist Family Law & Divorce Solicitor at Ward Hadaway.

I was the first solicitor in England and Wales to represent both parties in a divorce.

The Legal Directories say:

“He can achieve outcomes others might find impossible.” Chambers & Partners 2023

“100% the family lawyer you want on your side.  A fighter.” Legal 500 2023

I won the Partner of the Year Award in 2022, across all areas of law, and also Family Law Associate Solicitor of the Year Award in 2017, after being nominated by my peers in the family law community, including members of the Family Law Bar and partners from rival firms, who respect my approach.

I’m the past National Chair of Young Resolution and now sit on the Resolution National Committee.  I’m committed to adopting a constructive approach in all cases, but I possess the necessary skill and tenacity to fight someone’s corner if necessary.

I’m passionate about achieving the best results for all of my clients, which is why almost all of my work comes to me directly through personal and professional recommendations.

I own a successful family-run business, which was established over 30 years ago.  This means that I have a very clear understanding of commercial issues and what really matters to business owners, which is key when approaching complex financial cases.  Alongside that, I also Chair the Board of Directors of a children’s sexual abuse counselling service, which ensures I always approach highly sensitive issues with care and compassion.
