After qualifying as a Solicitor in 1989, Helen has specialised in Family Law for 30 years, based in North and mid-Staffordshire but also representing clients in courts across the Midlands and occasionally beyond.
Helen has been a member of Resolution for many years and her practice reflects its values, focusing on the needs of families & children, and working constructively for the best outcomes wherever possible.
Helen was one of the first solicitors in Staffordshire to train as a Collaborative Family Lawyer and is now one of two solicitors at Tinsdills who can offer Collaborative Family Law, addressing all issues directly with your former partner, where you each have your own lawyer sitting right by your side.
Helen has also practised as a family mediator, so she is well placed to support clients through mediation. She can provide effective representation in divorce proceedings or court proceedings dealing with property & finance or children, to get the best outcomes for you and your family.
Modern families come in all shapes and sizes and Helen has a wealth of experience dealing with:
- Financial issues
- Cohabiting relationships
- Dissolution of civil partnerships, single-sex relationships
- Children’s issues.
Helen firmly believes that identifying the right process for particular clients and their families can affect not only the outcome, but their experience of the legal process as well.
