After qualifying as a solicitor in 1989 I have 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.
I have been a member of Resolution for many years and my practice reflects its values, focusing on the needs of families and children and working constructively for the best outcomes wherever possible. I am told that I have a reputation of being firm but fair.
I firmly believe that identifying the right process for particular clients and their families can affect the outcome and will certainly affect their experience of the legal process and costs. I was one of the first solicitors in Staffordshire to train as a Collaborative Family Lawyer. I am now one of two solicitors at Tinsdills who can offer Collaborative Family Law in which we address all issues directly with your former partner and you each have your own lawyer sitting right by your side.
I have also practiced as a family mediator so I am well placed to support clients through mediation. I can provide effective representation in divorce proceedings or court proceedings dealing with property and finance or children to get the best outcomes for you and your family.
Modern families come in all shapes and sizes. I have experience in divorce, financial issues, pensions, cohabiting relationships, and dissolution of civil partnerships, single-sex relationships, and children’s issues.
Away from work I live in North Staffordshire with my two children, now young adults. I run a little enjoy coastal walks, films, theatre, music and read anything from historical fiction to crime thrillers. I am on the PCC of my local church and play the cornet in the training band of Trentham Brass. On tour with the band last year I had the privilege of playing in the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate.
