I am committed to finding fair solutions to family issues. I strive to achieve this by caring, by listening, by understanding and by working with vision with clients to help them reach their own resolutions – where possible - together. From my wide experience of different approaches towards dispute resolution, I firmly believe that collaborative law offers the best way forward, for most.
A trained mediator, arbitrator and a Resolution accredited specialist lawyer, I am also a past member of the IACP board and sat for 25 years on the board of Resolution, the 6,000 strong professionals' organisation in England&Wales.
