Profile / Experience

I joined Duncan Lewis as a Solicitor in the Family Law Department in August 2016 and offer advice and representation in the Solihull and Birmingham area.


I have over 15 years experience in all aspects of family law including:

  • Divorce and separation;
  • Civil partnership dissolutions;
  • Division of assets including complex and high net worth assets;
  • Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements; cohabitation and separation agreements;
  • Non-molestation and occupation orders where there has been domestic violence;
  • Cohabitation disputes involving property; and
  • Applications relating to the adoption of children by parents, grandparents and third parties and matrimonial conveyancing.


I represent clients from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities residing all over the UK, and I have significant experience representing clients in court.


I have undertaken an extensive training course leading to qualification as a Collaborative Family Lawyer. I can, therefore, offer clients the benefit of this innovative approach, which focuses on settling family disputes outside of court.


I am also a member of Resolution, an organisation that promotes constructive and non-confrontational ways of resolving family law issues.


I am passionate about helping people to resolve the issues they face around divorce and separation in a constructive and creative way, which puts their needs and the needs of any children of the family first, whilst focusing on achieving the best possible outcome for the client.


For those who struggle to communicate in English, I speak fluent Punjabi
