I have practised family law for fifteen years for a wide range of clients from all possible backgrounds and wealth brackets. My job is a privilege and I use all my experience (both legal and therapeutic) to help parties to communicate as effectively as possible and help them create a realistic solution that works for them as cost effectively as possible.
My approach is cooperative rather than adversarial. I strive always to be trustworthy, fair-minded, professional and communicative. My greatest satisfaction is helping parties agree a mutually acceptable and workable agreement.
