I obtained a first class honours degree in law in 1985, subsequently passing my law society finals to become a Solicitor in 1986. Since then, I have practised as a Solicitor in the family law arena, joining Porter Dodson in 1991. I became a Partner in 1993.

    I work in family law, undertaking divorces for clients and helping them to achieve fair financial remedies. I am also collaboratively trained. I work with farmers, businessmen, and high net worth individuals, as well as not so high net worth clients, all of whom need help to achieve a remedy which is fair to both parties.

    I listen. I advise what is fair given the respective parties’ financial resources balanced against their individual needs. Our Family Team works together, often bouncing ideas off against each other to provide the right solution for the individual client.

    I love my garden where I keep a beehive. I was the chairman for a local homeless housing charity until a few years ago. I enjoy reading and am trying to learn Dutch.


    Excellent and prompt service, I felt I was in expert hands.

    Mrs A

    Bev Rockliff was brilliant and supportive. She was clear from the outset regarding the costs.

    Ms D

    Empathetic, professional and efficient.


    I was always well informed of legal expectations (good or bad). Thank you to Beverly Rockliff and her team, it was a long process but so much easier with their communication and hard work.

    Mr Vale

    Superb, friendly, professional advice. I would 100% recommend and would use Porter Dodson again for anything else in my future life.

    Mr O'Brien

    Beverly Rockliff was excellent- very responsive, clear, concise, no-nonsense. It felt like she was on my side in what was a very difficult situation for me.

    Mrs R

    Beverley always made the time to listen to me and then offered such good advice.


    Having identified Beverley Rockliff, it soon became apparent that we gelled and I shall remain sincerely grateful for her wise counsel, often in difficult and frustrating episodes in the divorce. Porter Dodson, as a firm, is professional, reassuring and mindful of the trauma associated with the divorce process.
