I have been a specialist family solicitor, working both North and South of the Tyne for almost twenty years. I trained and qualified as a collaborative lawyer as I increasingly felt that the Court process didn’t work for many people, For me, one huge benefit of the collaborative process is that clients, and their collaborative lawyers, get the chance to work together and not against each other. This produces results that benefit separating couples and their children. I am also a Resolution trained, qualified and practising mediator. I trained as a mediator because I wanted to offer clients another option to keep their cases out of Court.
I am committed to helping my clients to resolve the problems associated with relationship breakdown amicably, cost effectively and, if at all possible, without going through Court. I am approachable, sympathetic and will strive to achieve an outcome that works well for your family.
I am happy to answer any questions you may have about Collaborative Family Law over the phone and I offer a free 30 minute one to one consultation to discuss the Collaborative process as part of Collaborative Family Law North East’s voucher scheme.
