Associate Solicitor • Kendal
I specialise in all aspects of matrimonial and family law – divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships, cohabitee disputes, financial settlements and disputes including children (both private law and child care proceedings).
A graduate in German and Law, I qualified as a solicitor in 1992. I have worked exclusively in family law since then and have gained extensive experience and particular interest in resolving complex financial disputes between separating couples. I am a Resolution Accredited Specialist (with particular specialisation in advanced financial provision and children law - private). I am a member of Resolution which promotes a non-confrontational approach to resolving family disputes. I am a trained mediator, and am therefore able to offer an alternative to the more traditional methods of dispute resolution.
I am approachable, down to earth and a sympathetic listener, committed to adopting a constructive approach to the resolution of often difficult and emotionally charged disputes.
I am married with two teenage children. I would rather be skiing than doing almost anything else but I am also a keen cyclist and an enthusiastic (rather than talented) member of the cello section of the Westmorland Orchestra.

The compassionate approach she used to steer the divorce through a difficult set of circumstances, made it slightly more bearable, along with the "tea and tissues" which were always appreciated!
