I specialise in children and domestic abuse applications, divorce and finances. My responsibilities include providing legal advice to clients, progressing the smooth running of their matter, provide realistic advice and manage expectation, explaining the court process and the legalities of their case. I'm based in our Chelmsford office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01245 453878.
I enjoy making a difficult and traumatic period in people’s lives less fraught where I can. I am welcoming, warm, and sympathetic, but realistic and offer clear advice. I am approachable and responsive.
I am a Chartered Legal Executive, vice chairman of the Essex branch of Chartered Legal Executives, and a member of Resolution and YResolution. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, eating out. I also enjoy some sports, swimming, tap dancing, and live ice hockey matches. I like watching motor bike racing and love travelling. In my spare time I also try to assist with the Residence Family Committee for the Nursing Home where my mother attends.
