Career History

I joined Neves in September 2018 as a trainee solicitor and qualified as a Family Law solicitor in December 2020, working under the supervision of Head of Department, Beth Woodward. 

I am on the board of Trustees for Relate MK (voluntary role).

Emily is listed in the Legal 500 2024 edition. 
Being recommended by Legal 500 provides clients with an independent assessment of our ability, gives a flavour of who we are and what sets us apart from other law firms. Follow the web link for full details of the Legal 500 rankings.

Recent Cases

I advise on all aspects of family law including:

  • Divorce
  • Financial matters following separation or divorce
  • Making arrangements for children
  • Cohabitation Agreements
  • Enforcement of Orders following non-compliance 
  • Financial Provision for Children
  • Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements
  • Separation Agreements
  • Disputes regarding children
  • Applications for urgent protection orders (including non-molestation and occupation orders) 
  • Child Relocation
  • Child Abduction

I am often instructed to make urgent applications concerning children, such as where a child is withheld following contact with one parent.

Having experienced working in the matrimonial, conveyancing and dispute resolution teams during my traineeship, I have been able to use the knowledge gained to advise clients where there is a crossover, such as a property transfer arising from a financial order on divorce or making enforcement applications for non-compliance with court orders. 

I am a firm believer in resolving disputes and work with my clients to seek to settle issues at an early stage where possible. 

I am a member of Resolution. (Resolution members are committed to promoting a constructive approach to family issues that considers the needs of the whole family.)

I like to stay up to date with new developments in the law and I enjoy researching new and topical issues.

What makes me human

In my spare time you will often find me in the shopping centre, out for a run (begrudgingly!), in the kitchen, and spending as much time as possible with my family and friends. I have a strange mix of hobbies - I am a keen crafter, football fan and I love a weekend break!

"My ex is refusing to mediate but I do not want to spend money on legal fees, what can I do?"

As family solicitors, this is something we hear frustratingly often. Believe it or not, we would prefer your disputes to be sorted outside of a court process which is lengthy and costly for you both. But what can you do when the other person simply will not engage?

I would just like to say a massive thank you for help in this matter, at a difficult time for us all, Emily you gave us clear sensible advice and were thoughtful regarding costs and possible outcomes. I am glad we were able to bring this to a close and would recommend your services to anyone else requiring this service.
