I have been a solicitor for 24 years and undertake both legal aid and privately funded work in family law, specializing in the law relating to children. I have represented parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and children. I am a member of the Law Society’s Children Panel.
I also help people involved in family breakdown, including in violent or abusive relationships in obtaining protective injunction orders through the Courts.
I recognise that clients often approach a solicitor in times of acute crisis, when they are vulnerable and afraid. I always try to be as sympathetic, helpful and supportive to our clients as I can be whilst using my experience and expertise in seeking to achieve the best possible outcome for them.
I have lived in Somerset since 1987 and am an ‘empty-nester’ with a growing brood of grandchildren.
