I regularly handle; divorce and financial settlements including Islamic divorces; Wills & Probate Work including Islamic Wills; Private Child Law (contested residence & contact), cohabitation disputes; pre-nuptial, post-nuptial & separation agreements.


I aim to assist my clients resolve disputes through mediation and non-confrontational means only to ensure that court litigation is only ever used as a last resort.


I am a member of Resolution, a Family Law Association for Solicitors who are committed to resolving family matters fairly and amicably.


I often attend to clients from serviced offices that are more geographically convenient for them or via Skype, with no need to travel to our offices. Cases can be run mostly on email, and if needed, out of hours meetings can be arranged.
