Expertise & Experience
I can advise you in traditional negotiations, in applications to the Court or in the Collaborative Process, where we work together with your former Partner and their Collaborative Lawyer to find a solution that works for the whole family. I can assist you as a Mediator in a Mediation, Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) continuing as your Mediator. I can advise you throughout the Mediation Process, as a Family Lawyer if you undertake Mediation with other Mediators.
I am a founding member of Thameside Collaborative Lawyers and Mediators bringing together Lawyers, Family Consultants, Financials and Mediators to create the team that meets the needs of you and your family.
I live locally with my family and Hungarian Vizsla dog. In addition to my professional life I enjoy books, dancing, arts and crafts, cooking and films with my daughters, Pilates, Book Group, the Arts and admiring my husband’s effort’s at the “family” allotment.
