“While studying law in Warwickshire, I worked at the local Crown and County Court gaining valuable experience and insight into our legal justice system. From there I moved to work in legal practice in offices in Coventry, Birmingham and Nuneaton where I gained further experience and perfected my advocacy skills. Now, as an experienced divorce and family lawyer and accomplished advocate with Woolley & Co I manage a diverse range of family law cases.
Having qualified as a Chartered Legal Executive in 1998 I have practiced solely in family law since then. This has provided me with extensive experience across a whole range of divorce and family law issues. I enjoy advising and guiding my clients through what can be a difficult period in their life whether this be in relation to a dispute about the living arrangements or care of their children or divorce and financial settlement issues. I appreciate how emotional and traumatic a breakdown in a relationship or marriage can be, and actively encourage a constructive and conciliatory approach, working to the codes of practice set out by Resolution.
I have represented clients within the police force, fire service and armed forces as well as local business people and I am proud to say that the majority of my work is obtained through recommendations from satisfied clients. I’m approachable and flexible and happy to accommodate out of hours appointments if this helps you.
In my spare time I love to be outdoors as I am a country girl at heart! My passion is horses, and I am lucky enough to own my own who I regularly ride.”
