I am a Solicitor specialising in Family Law.
I was admitted as a solicitor in 1999 and joined Butcher & Barlow in 2011 as a result of a merger between the firm of Salt Veeder and Butcher & Barlow. I am a Partner and I am based at both the Leigh and Prestwich offices.
I specialise in Family Law, with a particular emphasis on finances following on from divorce or separation and issues regarding children. I am a member of Resolution and I have acted in a number of high net worth divorces and important children cases. I have previously represented a client with profound hearing loss, accused of serious assault upon a child during contact, based upon videotaped interviews which were successfully challenged in the High Court.
I am passionate about helping my Clients get results. My friendly professional style helps Clients feel at ease. I work closely with my Clients and ensure that they are fully informed throughout. I deal with matters from taking initial instructions, advising on costs which is an important consideration for Clients, negotiating and representing Clients at court.
Out of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and gardening when the weather permits!
