I am a solicitor and supervisor in the Family Department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors.
I have extensive experience in all areas of family law, including straight forward and defended applications for the dissolution of a marriage and a civil partnership. I regularly assist clients with proceedings in relation to financial relief from the commencement of their matter through to contested final hearings, as well as applications for the enforcement and variations of a final order.
I advise and assist clients in respect of prenuptial agreements and negotiations in relation to child arrangements orders and financial relief settlements to avoid hostile and protracted proceedings where possible.
I frequently advise and attend court to represent clients in applications under the Children Act for orders consisting of child arrangements, prohibited steps, specific issues and in enforcement proceedings relating to them.
I have assisted clients in respect of applications to make their children wards of the court and within child abduction proceedings.
I have comprehensive experience in advising and representing clients in respect of obtaining and defending non-molestation orders and occupation orders.
I am an accredited member of the Law Society’s Family Law Advanced Accreditation Scheme.
