Martha joined Chapman Pieri in September 2013 after successfully completing the Legal Practice Course with a Distinction at the University of Law. She undertook her three year Law degree at the University of Sussex and attained a 2:1 with honours.
Martha underwent her period of recognised training with the firm and qualified in March 2016. She has undertaken work in all areas of family law including divorce, financial remedy, cohabitation, private law children’s matters and family law act matters.
Martha is a dedicated and valued member of the team. She is committed to hard work and always aims to provide a high standard of client care.
Why Family Law?: Martha knew that a career in family law was for her as soon as she studied this area as an elective in the final year of her Law degree. The personal nature of family law and being able to help individuals through some of the most stressful periods in their lives made her decision to pursue a career in this area. Since being at Chapman Pieri, Martha has seen how challenging but yet rewarding a career in family law can be.
On a Personal Note: Martha has a big fat Greek family. She is one of five siblings and a proud Godmother. Growing up, Martha played the piano and the violin and was also a keen ballerina. She has attained certificates from the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal Academy of Dance. Martha loves to bake cakes and desserts, despite the fact that she is no Mary Berry!
