I am an experienced solicitor who specialises in family law and an accredited specialist in finance and children matters. I have a history of successfully delivering the best results for my clients in all aspects of family law. This includes divorce, finances, cohabitation, separation, prenuptial agreements and children matters. My clients appreciate that I am compassionate and I adopt a non-confrontational approach in order to try and settle matters amicably and swiftly.
My areas of work
I deal with all areas of family law, but my particular specialism is dealing with the financial matters that arise following or during a divorce or separation. I will carefully consider my client’s and any children’s needs and advise on how property, savings, investments, pensions and any other assets should be dealt with and whether there is a claim for maintenance.
During my career I have obtained extensive experience in high value asset disputes involving multiple properties, large pensions, sizeable investments and businesses. I also have a superior understanding of working with Armed Forces personnel and dealing with related issues such as pensions.
I am a Resolution Accredited Specialist in Finance and Children matters, which demonstrates my knowledge and expertise in these areas. I am proud to be a member of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers, who believe in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters.
My previous experience
I qualified as a solicitor in 2006, after graduating from Swansea University with an LLB (Hons) Law Degree and attaining a distinction on the Legal Practice Course at Cardiff University. Following qualification, I worked in the busy family department of a local firm prior to joining BakerLaw in 2012.
