Biography

I have been in full time practice since qualification. I initially practised in Crime and family and undertook many jury trials. Since 2004 I have specialised in family law in areas of children and finance. I practice predominantly in public law proceedings (care proceedings) and have experience in DOL cases, human rights matters, and serious neglect and abuse cases. I have acted for local authorities, parents and guardians. I also accept instructions in private children’s matters and have particular experience in contact and residence disputes. I have experience in family finance cases and have conducted contested divorces, ancillary relief matters, children act applications for financial provision and proceeds of crime applications.

I appeared in the recent guideline case of Re AB ( A child: deprivation of liberty) [2015] EWHC 3125 (FAM).
