01582 714606


I am an Associate Solicitor in our Family Department, based in Harpenden. I have experience in a wide range of family matters. I specialise in providing advice and assistance on the issues that can arise following the breakdown of a marriage, civil partnership or cohabitation. I also advise on the proactive steps that can be taken prior to marriage or cohabitation in order to protect assets.

I also advise on private law children matters including disputes about living and contact arrangements. During my time post qualification, I have also had exposure to financial matters involving a broad range of asset bases.

I recognise that family disputes can be traumatic and emotive for all involved. Therefore my aim is to provide clear, logical advice that helps my clients reach the best possible outcome.

I’m also a member of Resolution. Resolution members are committed to resolving family disputes in a constructive and non-confrontational manner.
