Alison is a divorce and family lawyer based in Warwick. She has a reputation for giving practical family law advice to her clients and has a natural ability to empathise with her clients and their difficult situations.
“Having specialised in family law for the last 18 years I have a wide range of experience across divorce, financial settlements, pre and post nuptial agreements and cases involving children.
I practised originally in Worcestershire and the West Midlands, before joining Woolley & Co. However, my clients come from all over the country and indeed the world as I act for many British expats living overseas. Having personally lived abroad for several years, I can particularly understand the concerns and difficulties expatriates face when they are in need of a British family lawyer but are unable to return to the UK.
I have previously held the role of Head of the Family Department but I prefer a role where I have more time available for clients. I think it’s essential to take time to listen to clients and explain advice and the procedures involved clearly. I am committed to achieving the best possible outcome for my clients and I will alter my approach according to my client’s needs, whether that means adopting softly, softly or robust methods.
My clients often report they appreciate the frank and honest approach I adopt when delivering advice whilst still maintaining a supportive and friendly rapport not forgetting, a sense of humour when possible!
My hobbies and interests are mainly centred around my family and travelling. I do have a passion for Latin American and Ballroom Dancing and I love to dance when the opportunity presents. I also enjoy teaching beginners to dance, especially children.”
