I qualified as a solicitor in 2009 and have practised exclusively in family law since qualification. I joined Porter Dodson in May 2019.

    With over 10 years’ experience in family law, I advise clients in all aspects of relationship breakdown, including divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships, separation, children disputes, resolution of financial matters, cohabitation and pre and post-nuptial agreements.

    I am an accredited member of Resolution; I follow a Code of Practice that promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems. I encourage solutions that consider the needs of the whole family, in particular the best interests of the children.

    I pride myself on being approachable to clients. I consider that I provide a supportive, strategic and realistic approach to dispute resolution.

    I live in Beaminster, having grown up in Dorset. Outside of work, I love spending time with my family at the beach and exploring the local countryside.
