The Matrimonial Pot - a Loan or a Gift? A common question that often arises when dealing with financial aspects of a divorce is whether money and/or assets given to a married couple (individually or together) by a third party prior to, at the outset or...
I am very excited and delighted to be joining the family law team at Chapman Pieri as a family law solicitor.
Having qualified as a solicitor in 2003 and starting my career in Cardiff city centre, I moved to London in 2006 and have continued to expand and develop my experience exclusively in family law. The journey has been exciting and adventurous at times and it now continues with the reputable Chapman Pieri.
What am I like as a solicitor? Well, I am an enthusiastic and ambitious family law solicitor and strive towards obtaining the best possible results and outcome for my clients. I pride myself on my friendly, approachable and professional manner and believe in tailoring my advice to each individual client’s needs and expectations. I recognise that what I do is a very sensitive area of law and quite often, an emotional rollercoaster for my clients. By being aware of this, it helps me to engage with my clients on a personal level and it is important to me for my clients to feel open and comfortable with me at all times.
I deal with all areas of matrimonial and family law matters including divorce and financial cases, domestic violence, dissolution of civil partnerships, cohabitation disputes and all issues concerning children. I have worked hard to develop an extensive high-profile caseload, dealing regularly with high net worth clients in financial proceedings. Many cases I have been involved in have been highly complex and include sensitive children issues resulting in successful outcomes.
I am also a Special Accredited member of Resolution, an organisation committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes in a non-confrontational manner. By being a member, I am committed to encouraging solutions that consider the needs of the whole family - and in particular the best interests of children.
In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, both home and away and have ventured into scuba diving, which I intend to master to perfection at some point. I enjoy hiking and cycling, going to the theatre and getting stuck into a good book.
In reality, however, most of my spare time revolves around ferrying my two girls around all their extra-curricular activities and taking them to their friends forever ending birthday parties! Being a mum to my two girls is often demanding but of course I wouldn’t have it any other way.
