Profile / Experience

I am a Supervisor and Solicitor in the Family Law Department at Duncan Lewis and represent clients in all aspects of Family Law matters.

I specialise in divorce matters, low to medium and high net worth financial remedies following divorce, cohabitation disputes, civil partnerships and pre-nuptial agreements, domestic violence as well as private children act matters.

I provide a flexible service and offer clients sound legal advice on a practical basis and work to nothing but the highest standard. I make a point of getting a good understanding of my client and their individual vulnerabilities, concerns, needs and wishes. Consequently, clients are the most important focus of my work and I seek to ensure that they are fully engaged in the work that I undertake on their behalf so they understand at all times what is happening, and what they can realistically expect. I am approachable and because of this clients feel at ease with me and my solid determination tends to ensure the outcome is good for my clients.

I find my work incredibly rewarding, and never take for granted the fact that I am dealing with real people in real life situations which require my complete dedication. I always seek to ensure the best outcome that I can, whilst considering the commercial cost to the client in doing so.

I undertake the majority of my own advocacy where I can, and often appear before District, Circuit, High Court Judges and Magistrates.
