I specialise in family law and qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales in 2009. I initially practised in Yorkshire and then overseas in Gibraltar. I was subsequently called to the bar in Gibraltar in 2015. I relocated to St Albans in late 2016 and worked for a local firm as head of their Family Department before joining Neves on the 23rd September 2019 as a Senior Associate.
I have significant experience in all areas of family law advising on divorce, nullity, unmarried couples, financial remedy, children disputes, relocation of children and injunctions. A large part of my work deals with financial matters on divorce or with unmarried couples and complex children disputes with parental alienation allegations. I act for clients in obtaining pension sharing orders when a divorce has taken place overseas, or where there is a family business or a party is seeking to vary a spousal maintenance order. I have vast experience with cases where a parent has been implacably hostile to contact and sort to alienate the other parent.
I advise on relocation cases where a parent wishes to relocate to a foreign country with a child and have contributed towards the publication of International Relocation of Children whilst I practised in Gibraltar.
I am a member of the Law Society Children Panel, Resolution and hold a Specialist Accreditation in Complex Financial Remedies and Children Law.
I have been involved in two reported and notable cases:
A & B & C (children) 2014 EWFC B75
T & S DDM No 56 of 2014 (Gibraltar Jurisdiction)
Since joining Neves Solicitors, I have been a regular contributor to the Hertfordshire Living Magazine and have featured in their Women in Business supplement. I have also had editorials published in both The Guardian & The Times newspapers.
When I'm not giving legal advice, like many of my clients, I enjoy going on holiday, relaxing in Sotogrande, attending one of the grand slam tennis events and working my way through the top 50 restaurants in the world.
I would like to thank you though for all of your help and support so far, you’ve been brilliant and I shall always be grateful.
