My experience

I am an associate specialising in:

  • divorce and separation matters;
  • financial claims, including pension claims, claims for children, maintenance and property;
  • enforcement proceedings;
  • disputes relating to children;
  • emergency injunctions;
  • cohabitation/TOLATA claims;
  • living together/cohabitation agreements; and
  • separation agreements; and
  • mediation.

I have experience dealing with matters that involve various corporate structures, trusts, pensions and investments.

I also act for parties who are joined to or intervene in financial remedy proceedings as a result of arguments about jointly owned assets or assets in which other parties hold a beneficial interest.

I frequently advise in relation to children disputes, including applications for child arrangements, specific issue orders, prohibited steps orders and enforcement of child arrangements.

I am a qualified mediator and am able to assist parties who wish to engage in mediation to resolve matters where appropriate (in respect of any family matters).

Examples of my experience include:

  • advising in respect of divorce and financial matters involving numerous different pensions;
  • advising in respect of financial settlements involving complex trust and company structures;
  • acting for parties in contested court proceedings relating to property ownership, sale or transfer of jointly-owned properties and arguments in relation to beneficial ownership;
  • acting for parents in contested court proceedings in relation to the return of children from elsewhere in the UK and the enforcement of a child arrangements order; and
  • acting for interveners within financial remedy proceedings.

I am a member of Resolution. I believe in a non-confrontational and constructive approach to family matters and the avoidance of costly court proceedings where possible, including through mediation. I am confident in dealing with court proceedings where this is necessary, including representing clients at hearings as appropriate.

I have completed the Paragon Dragonfly training and I am a Dragonfly Champion.

How I’ve helped our clients

I found working with Danielle and Sharlott a very focused and professional experience - of excellent quality, well organised and always very timely. In particular you have a very calm, fact based and down to earth approach, which worked particularly well for me by helping me stay grounded and focused throughout the whole process. I also observed that it was extremely successful (from my perspective) when you were interacting with the judge and my wife’s representatives during the dispute resolution hearings. The contrast between your style and that adopted by others was stark, and in the end that probably worked to my advantage.

I am so grateful to my solicitor Danielle, who listened to my rather traumatic situation, and supported me throughout the divorce process. Danielle gave me expert advice from the outset, and continued to do so throughout. I am now settled in a new home with my son ready to start the healing process and a new chapter in my life. I would definitely recommend your law firm if the need ever arose.
