Loraine Davenport

Director, Hawkins Family Law

I have over 20 years’ experience in family law and have always specialised in this area. In recent years I have spent the majority of my time acting for clients in relation to financial matters following relationship breakdowns, particularly more complex cases involving trust company assets or pensions. I also deal with complex children matters, such as removal from jurisdiction and protracted and difficult child arrangement orders. I am recommended by the The Legal 500 as a specialist who “fights her clients’ corner, but knows when it is in a client’s interests to settle.”

I am actively involved in Resolution, both nationally and regionally, to promote good family law practice. I am a Resolution accredited specialist and in 2005 I trained as a Collaborative lawyer. Since then I have concluded many successful collaborative cases and am also trained as a Mediator.

I established the Milton Keynes Regional Group of Resolution and still chair that group, as well as being a member of the Collaborative Pod.
