SRA Regulated Freelance Solicitor

Family Law Solicitor

I qualified as a Family solicitor in a top tier firm in London in 2010. I worked in the Family department there as an Associate Solicitor for several years before having my own family. I took a short career break to focus on bringing up my children and during that time completed my training in Family Mediation. In 2020, I decided to set up on my own as a Freelance Solicitor, with the aim of providing a service to those who do not want to compromise on the quality of advice, but cannot afford high private solicitor’s fees. I also work with two local domestic abuse and stalking charities to provide advice to those most in need of access to justice.

    Why me

    Personal approach, effective results

    I believe that where possible and safe to do so, it is better for all involved to reach agreements outside of court whether by negotiation, mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution. However, in many cases this is not possible and court proceedings are unavoidable. In those circumstances, I have the expertise and experience to advise you through the process in a way that is personal, caring and real.
