About Lisa

I am a solicitor in the Family department and have over 10 years’ experience in Family law. I deal with all aspects of Family Law and Care Proceedings.

I understand that people who come to see me for advice are going through an extremely difficult, stressful and emotional time and I always strive to be sympathetic and sensitive whilst at the same time being pragmatic and realistic, working hard to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients.

I work closely with clients to resolve any issues in a way that suits them and their families as I recognize that the best course of action is different for each client and their particular circumstances.

I am a member of the Law Society Family Law Advanced Scheme which means that I have shown that I have a required level of competence and knowledge in specialist areas (Private Law Children and Financial Remedy).

I am also a member of Resolution and sit on the local committee. I qualified as a Solicitor in 2006 and have specialised in family law since 2007.
