I qualified in October 2003 following a lengthy career in law since the early 1980’s.
I chose family law as my specialism because I felt that I could help people during what can be a very stressful time.
I enjoy being able to assist individuals during difficult periods in their lives and consider myself to be a kind, considerate and approachable advocate. My main aim is obviously always to achieve the best possible result for my clients and I always encourage my clients to try to agree matters in as non-confrontational way as possible. However, when that is not achievable, I am able to ‘step up to the mark’ and argue my clients cause when necessary.
I specialise in all areas of family law and represent clients in a private or, if eligible, publicly funded basis.
I am a member of Resolution and Devon and Somerset Law Society. I also sit on East and Mid-Devon Domestic and Sexual Violence and Abuse Forum.
I am married with one son and two grandchildren.
I “attempt” to keep fit and regularly attend my local gym. I enjoy my holidays, particularly Australia where my son and his young family now live.
