What do you specialise in?
My clients include parents and other relatives trying to make arrangements for contact with children, couples separating and needing me to deal with their finances, victims (both men and women) of domestic violence, parents and grandparents where social services have become involved with children. I have for many years been a member of the Child Care Panel.
I focus on the issues that matter and advise you what your options are. I believe in giving frank, straightforward and clear advice. I ensure you know how the law applies to your case. I support you to make the right choices, and put them into effect. I am a member of Resolution and subscribe to their Code of Practice that can be found here: http://www.resolution.org.uk. Resolution commits family lawyers to resolving disputes in a non-confrontational way wherever possible. I share the belief that family law disputes should be dealt with in a constructive way designed to preserve people’s dignity and to encourage agreement.
Family problems are most often based on in a lack of communication. Negotiation, even at the door of the court, is very important in all areas of law but particularly family law. There is not a week goes by when I am not at court personally advising my clients, representing their interests, and presenting their case.
When you contact me it will be because you are dealing with significant changes in your life and need help. I apply detailed knowledge of the law and over 30 years of experience to support you through change. For nearly 15 years I was the Banner Jones partner responsible for the Staveley office, which gave me a breadth of experience in legal problems.
