I am a partner in the family team and have over 10 years’ experience in all areas of divorce and family law, helping clients who are facing relationship breakdown or other family conflict.
I am a passionate lawyer who cares about my clients and the team I work with. I am widely respected for my expertise and handling of very complex matters. I trained as a collaborative lawyer and offer a non-adversarial approach to my clients when appropriate. I have a calm, measured approach and work tirelessly for my clients to resolve family disputes in a constructive, conciliatory and cost-effective way.
I am recognised in Legal 500 2022 as a “Next Generation Partner” and have previously been a “Rising Star” in 2020 and 2021. I am Resolution Accredited in Complex Finances, Children and issues surrounding cohabiting couples.
I have a wealth of experience in dealing with divorce and high value financial cases. If my client has complex family, financial or business arrangements, I will always provide practical advice and clear guidance on achieving the best outcome. I handle complex and challenging private children disputes involving residence, contact, welfare and relocation issues. I will work hard to find the right solution for my client and their children without fuss or legal jargon.
I qualified in 2011 with a firm in Buckinghamshire, before moving to London where I specialised in financial matters and children proceedings. I returned to Buckinghamshire where I became part of a successful team for 6 years. I was promoted to partner in November 2020. I joined Debenhams Ottaway’s thriving divorce and family law team as a partner in February 2023.
