I have specialised in Family Law since 1984. I was one of the first lawyers in England to train as a mediator and one of the first solicitors to qualify as a collaborative lawyer. I am the past chair of Resolution, a member of the Law Society's Advanced Family Law Panel, which recognises exceptional expertise in Family law and also the Law Society's Advanced Mediation Panel. I am a Resolution accredited specialist lawyer (finance and cohabitation disputes are my specialisms).
I joined the IACP board in July 2008.
