I joined rhw solicitors in April 2008 from an established Surrey firm to set up the Family Department. I now work with Julian McEvoy, Elizabeth Leah and Catherine Withers in the family team. I became a member partner of rhw in December 2012.
I was born in Guildford and attended the County School and then the College of Law after reading history at Cardiff University. I was admitted as a solicitor in April 2005. I have a wide range of experience in all family matters to include prenuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, divorce, disputes over jurisdiction, cohabitation disputes, civil partnerships, children matters, injunctions and resolving financial matters arising from the breakdown of a relationship. I also carry out advocacy on behalf of clients. I am an accredited family law specialist with both the Law Society and Resolution.
I am also a qualified family law mediator. Until recently, I lectured law to mature students at Guildford College. As well as being a member of Resolution, I also regularly advise for the Surrey Law Centre at Guildford CAB. I am past Vice President of Surrey Law Society and an advisor for the National Centre for Domestic Violence.
“Samantha was approachable and clearly knowledgeable. She was able to quickly appraise matters. Her service was excellent.”
“You helped me more than you know - a few years back - in my cohabitation/co-ownership dispute. I remain very grateful and you may be assured I will certainly recommend you to anyone who asks me for a referral.“
