Me in a minute
I am passionate about family law
Having qualified as a family solicitor in 1995 at RPC, where I specialised in all areas of family law, including divorce, finance and child abduction, I was delighted to join the Withers in 2004. I am passionate about family law and love working with such a dynamic, inspirational team. I am a qualified mediator and formerly sat on the Resolution Mediation Committee. I helped to set up YResolution with Caitlin Jenkins when we were newly qualified and have also enjoyed being involved with various law centres over the years.
The work we do in the family team at Withers often has an international flavour and I especially enjoy working on those cases with an Italian element, having studied in Venice many moons ago, when taking my first degree in Renaissance History. Whether I'm undertaking research on a tricky jurisdiction point, drafting an article for the legal press, organising training events, or debating tactics in cases with members of the team, there is never a dull moment.
