How much experience do you have in this area?

I have over a decade of experience across the whole range of family issues covering divorce and children matters.

Legal Expertise

I have a lot of family law expertise and regularly work on complex and difficult cases.

Children

I have experience in applications for Child Arrangements Orders, Prohibited Steps Orders and Specific Issue Orders, including issues of residence, contact, schooling, removal of children from the jurisdiction and surrogacy. I also have a particular expertise in cases involving suspected parental alienation.

I represent all parties in care proceedings, including the children acting through their guardians and prospective special guardians. I’m regularly instructed in multi day final hearings and have a busy appellate practice. In addition, I frequently appear in proceedings involving vulnerable clients, including cross-examination of expert witnesses and allegations of non-accidental injuries and sexual abuse.

Divorce

In terms of family finance, I can assist with all aspects of financial settlement proceedings including matters relating to transfers of tenancy, enforcement, applications for interim relief such as maintenance pending suit applications and trust disputes. I’ve recently been instructed in cases involving complex cross-jurisdictional property disputes involving third-party interveners.I’ve also advised and represented clients in proceedings relating to the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 (TOLATA), enforcement of child maintenance payments, declaration of parentage, and non-molestation and occupation orders.

Non-molestation and protective orders

I regularly attend court in cases dealing with injunctions, non-molesation orders and other protective orders (including occupation orders, prohibitive steps orders and other injunctive orders).
