I am a family law barrister and mediator practicing in all areas of family law, with a specialism in private client matters including financial remedies, Schedule 1, TOLATA, and children law. My particular areas of expertise include pensions on divorce, hidden assets and non-disclosure, parental disputes including those that involve mental health issues, ‘parental alienation’, relocation (internal and international) and complex high-conflict relationships.

I’m an all issues family mediator trained by Resolution, and offer the hybrid model of family mediation that can include the parties’ respective solicitors in the process.

I am also the co-chair of the Young Resolution national committee and one of Coram Chambers’ two heads of wellbeing.

I was a finalist for the 2018 Family Law Junior Barrister of the Year award and a finalist for the 2019 Family Law Commentator of the Year award, and am ranked as a leading junior in the 2020 Legal 500.

I am also a regular seminar speaker and writer, presenting regularly at national-level conferences as well as in-house. Recent seminars, webinars and articles include pensions on divorce, applied psychology in a family law context, wellbeing for family lawyers and the nuances and pitfalls of parental alienation allegations. For more details of seminar content see the link below to my chambers website page.
