Legal 500 2023 Edition.
Family / West Midlands
I am a Director in the Family Department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors and have been with the company for 6 years as a solicitor. I am based in the Birmingham office, and I also attend to clients across the West Midlands including Wolverhampton. 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 proceedings and the subsequent fees but still receive relevant compensation. I am also very experienced and equally as comfortable dealing with matters in court.
I am ranked in the Legal 500 2023 for my work across the West Midlands. I am an accredited specialist in international child abduction and domestic abuse, with Resolution. I am a fully trained Mediator which helps me to resolve disputes between families and partners on a more amicable basis.
