I qualified as a Solicitor in 1985 and since then have gained many years of experience dealing with all types of family matters including divorce, children matters, property and financial settlements and cohabitation disputes both in negotiation and in court proceedings. I joined Thomas Flavell & Sons as head of the family department in 1989 and became a partner in 1991.
I trained as a Family Mediator in 1999 and whilst I do not currently practise as a mediator I use the skills learned in my approach to all family matters. I am a member of Resolution (formerly Solicitors Family Law Association) and a member of the Law Society Advanced Family Law Panel.
I also advise on Wills and Probate matters.
