Partner, Accredited Specialist member of Resolution and Mediator and Collaborative Lawyer and Head of Family Department
I qualified in the area in 1986 and have continued to reside and practice here since. I specialise in Family law with particular reference to divorce cases involving high net worth individuals and farming and business interests.
My workload also includes contested Probate work and disputes between unmarried couples.
I have sat as a Deputy District Judge since 1999 and am authorised to deal with Children Act cases. This experience gives me a valuable insight into the practicalities of litigation.
I am qualified as a Collaborative lawyer and a mediator and welcome the shift in focus within Family Law towards conciliation rather than litigation.
In my spare time my passion is yoga as I am qualified to teach and run 2 local classes. I am also kept fit and busy by a couple of dogs and a horse.
