After having completed my postgraduate Masters degree in Family Law, I have had the privilege of beginning training to be a solicitor with Hawkins, under the guidance of leading lawyers and partners of the firm Joanna Hawkins, Annabel Hayward and Stacey St Clair. During this period of training I have been lucky enough to be involved in a variety of cases including high net worth financial matters with complexities such as trusts, limited companies and overseas assets. I have also amassed experience in children matters involving intractable contact disputes and domestic violence, also representing clients both in pursuing or defending injunctive actions such as Non-Molestation and Occupation Orders.
Whilst I always explore with my clients all appropriate methods of resolving disputes, I have successfully represented clients in Court and in all cases have guided them through the process to achieve the right outcome. I also understand the emotional turmoil that a divorce or separation can bring and the importance of having support during these times.
As for my background, I have been with Hawkins Family Law throughout my legal career, having joined the firm in August 2017 immediately after achieving a first-class honours degree as well as the Kennedy Prize for the ‘Best All-Round Law Student’. I am a keen legal blogger and have produced articles for Army & Me magazine and Berks, Bucks & Oxfordshire Incorporated Law Society amongst others.
I also have a keen interest in pro-bono work and have volunteered at the Citizens Advice Bureau and Law Clinics.
