I’m an Associate Solicitor in Michelmores’ family team. I specialise in advising clients on all family law issues from relationship breakdown, financial remedies, domestic abuse and complex Children Act issues. I also provide advice on wealth protection to include pre-nuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements. I am passionate about providing clients with the knowledge and information they need to take back control and make informed decisions about the future they want for themselves and their families.
I read law at Cardiff University gaining a first class degree and commenced my training with a specialist family law practice. Prior to joining Michelmores, I was an associate at a national law firm. Whilst working there, I was shortlisted for GWILS Junior Lawyer of the Year 2018. I joined Michelmores in January 2022. I am a member of Resolution, an organisation committed to resolving disputes constructively and sit on one of their national committees, focussed on improving wellbeing within the profession.
I was raised in North Wales and speak fluent Welsh. I have a passion for travel and managed to complete a 7 month ’round the world’ trip before completing my training. I get away when I can to destinations far and wide, most recently to Jordan and Canada.
