Profile / Experience
I am a solicitor in the Family Department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. My primary areas of expertise are divorce, private children matters and domestic abuse. I have a wealth of experience in divorce and civil partnership dissolution and also in financial disputes that can arise from divorce or dissolution including high net worth financial and property matters. I prepare both pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and I also have experience in representing clients after a co-habitual relationship has broken down.
I am a member of Resolution which is a Family Law Association for solicitors committed to resolving family matters fairly and amicably. I favour Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) as a means of communication between a separating family.This allows the family to avoid court procedures and fees but still receive relevant compensation. I am also very experienced and equally as comfortable dealing with matters in court.
I am a specialist in international child abduction and domestic abuse, as a result I have represented both parents and grandparents in all aspects of private children matters such as who a child will live with or how often they will see an absent parent or grandparent. I am also a fully trained Mediator which helps me to resolve disputes between families and partners.
