I am a Family law solicitor, qualified in 1994 and I have worked exclusively in family, matrimonial and children law since 1997. I worked in a large regional practice in Somerset until 2000 before returning to London. I moved to Thomas Dunton solicitors in February 2016.

As a member of Thomas Dunton’s Family team, I have a mixed caseload of divorce, separation & dissolution matters, many with complex financial aspects to them. I also advise and represent clients in Children Act matters relating to child arrangement orders (contact and residence) specific issue and prohibited steps orders, as well as leave to remove from the jurisdiction.

I have a particular interest in international children matters and I represent clients in child abduction cases under the Hague Convention or through Wardship proceedings.

I am a Resolution Accredited Specialist with Financial Remedy, Children Act and Child Abduction work as my three specialist areas. I am a qualified Collaborative Lawyer.

What can I do for you?    I can guide you through this most difficult time of your life with compassion and professionalism and help you see the wood for the trees.  I can intervene as little or as much as you wish so you always feel in control
