I graduated from the University of Plymouth with a Law and Politics BSc (Hons) degree. I studied the GDL at the College of Law in Guildford and I completed the LPC at Anglia Ruskin in Chelmsford.
I specialise in family and child law and I am based at the Ipswich office. I am able to assist in relation to:
• Domestic violence
• Children matters
• Financial applications
I am able to assist clients seeking or defending domestic violence injunctions. I deal with Non Molestation Order and Occupation Order applications. I can assist clients in relation to issues relating to the breakdown of a relationship including divorce, cohabitation disputes and financial applications. I also have a particular interest in assisting clients in relation to arrangements regarding children following divorce or separation. I deal with issues relating to parental responsibility, international relocation, education, contact and residence.
The Gotelee Family Team rank highly in the Legal 500. This demonstrates that at Gotelee we are continually committed to providing a service that our clients can rely on and trust and we are always looking at making improvements that will benefit our clients.
I am the Chair of the Suffolk and North Essex Junior Lawyers Division and a member of the Suffolk and North Essex Law Society (SNELS) committee. I am also a member of Resolution as well as the local Ipswich YRes committee. Resolution members are committed to promoting the Resolution Code of Practice and adopting a constructive approach to family law issues.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring the Suffolk countryside, travelling, cycling and going to the theatre.
