I am a Senior Associate at Calibrate Law , in Central London, where I have worked since February 2020.
Prior to joining Calibrate Law I worked at a Legal 500 & Chambers & Partners boutique family law firm in central London from January 2018.
Before then, I worked for a national award winning law firm in Cambridge. I was the first family lawyer to join that firm and played the lead role in building that family department. This department achieved Legal 500 status in its first year with me personally rated as a recommended family lawyer for East Anglia by the Legal 500 in 2017.
I have been working in family since 2009 and qualified as a family lawyer in March 2012. I have experience in all areas of family law and regularly acts for those who are seeking a divorce, advice on the breakdown of a cohabiting relationship or assistance on matters relating to their children. To date, I have acted for clients who reside across the UK as well as those that live abroad.
I am only one of the few family lawyers to be trained in collaborative law. This concept allows parties going through a separation to have a greater control over the process, allows a greater focus on meeting their specific needs, lets the lawyers work more closely with each other to do what is best for the family as a whole and provides a commitment to avoid the uncertain outcome often seen in court proceedings. I am a founding member of the We Can Work It Out collaborative pod in London formed in 2019.
I was shortlisted for Associate of the Year at the national Family Law Awards in 2019 and City Wealth Future Leaders Awards in 2020. These nominations highlights my growing reputation in the profession across England and Wales, including the city of London.
I currently sit on the Resolution Parenting After Parting Committee, Resolution London Region Committee and Resolution YRes National Committee after being elected by my peers in the profession. These roles gives me a strong voice on future policies and training adopted by Resolution to it members, with a particular focus on matters involving parents and their children following separation.
My interests outside of work includes spending many Saturday afternoons supporting my local football team. I further enjoy participating in regular exercise, when time allows me, and socialising with friends and family.
