Me in a minute

I love the drama and excitement of family law.

My mother is a family lawyer and growing up hearing her discuss her most dramatic cases inspired me to want to follow in her footsteps. I now specialise in family law and have done so since I started doing work experience placements as a teenager in Scotland and have since enjoyed working as a paralegal, trainee and solicitor at a niche family law firm in London, before relocating to Hong Kong in April 2016 to start my career at Withers.

I love the drama and excitement of family law and find every day to be different and I enjoy the way each case can still be surprising. It is great to be able to work so closely with our clients and it is rewarding to help people through what are often very hard and emotional issues.
