Stephanie specialises in resolving Divorce/Separation cases including divorce finance and disputes between parents about child arrangements.
Stef is currently on Maternity Leave.
Stephanie chose to specialise in family law after qualification and her particular expertise is in representing clients in divorce proceedings with particular interest in representing teachers and where children have special needs.
Before settling for a career in law, Stephanie undertook voluntary work in a classroom assistant role at Penrose Special Needs School in Bridgwater and at one point considered teaching as an alternative career path.
This experience has given Stephanie particular insight into the additional demands and stresses upon teachers, including at times of relationship breakdown.
To the same end, Stephanie has gained an understanding of the stresses upon parents whose children have special needs and the additional problems this can lead to when arranging fair child arrangements, which are focused upon the unique needs of the child – which can be lost sight of in times of parental dispute.
