Areas of Expertise

Overview

I am an Advocate within the Family Law team at BCR Law LLP. In my role, I advise clients in relation to all family matters, including issues around relationship breakdowns, children and with whom they live, and financial matters.

A large part of my role is legal research and the application of the Law. It is important to me to understand my client’s own circumstances so that I can provide the best advice on my client’s position and options. Where possible, I will always promote settlements by agreements out of Court, which is often in the best interest for all parties.

I work with my clients, with support from the Family Law team, and will be involved in all aspects of their case. From the initial meeting through to contested court proceedings, if needed, I ensure that I am there for my clients to guide and advise.

Where my clients might need assistance with other areas of law, such as Will writing or selling and buying property, I liaise with those departments for my clients to provide an all-round, full service.
