Helping families work through their legal issues and meeting people from all walks of life is one of the most enjoyable aspects of my role as Family Law Solicitor.
As a Family Law Solicitor I specialise in the areas of children and divorce – helping families to work through often complex issues in the most compassionate and understanding way.
Our family law department works very closely as a team and cover all areas of family law including pre-nuptial agreements or grandparents rights, to issues surrounding divorce and separation.
Both our Family Law Partner, Joanne Matthews, and myself are members of Resolution – this means that we approach all of our client matters in a non-confrontational and constructive way, working to minimise conflict and reduce the impact of separation and divorce on children.
After graduating with a Diploma in Law at the University of East Anglia, I worked as a paralegal specialising in Children Act Proceedings for two years.
Following this, I completed my training contract at a firm in Norfolk, before joining Burnett Barker Solicitors.
When you speak with me about your family law issues, I will advise you on your options going forward. You will not have to make any decisions there and then of course, and I would invite you to ask any questions you may have.
Often, I am able to reach agreement on your behalf, avoiding the need for attending Court. Where going to Court is one of your options however, I will talk you through proceedings so that you are fully aware of the next steps.

External Interests & Community Involvement
When I’m not working, I love to enjoy long walks in the countryside as well as a bit of shopping – something that living in Bury St Edmunds makes very easy. I am also attempting to study French, so feel free to test me out when we meet.
