Q: How long have you been working in family law?
A: I have been working in family law for over 20 years and have been working with Bray & Bray for 15.
Q: What made you get involved in family law?
A: I gravitated towards it during my training. I think it suited me and my skills.
Q: What cases do you have the most experience in?
A: I deal with all types of family cases from divorce through to finances and child arrangements to care proceedings. Over the years I have undertaken a lot of work dealing with divorce and financial settlements upon divorce including dealing with pensions and the arrangements between parents in relation to their children.
Q: Why do you think someone should come to Bray & Bray to sort out these types of issues?
A: Our team has a lot of experience between us and I think clients want family lawyers who have a reputation for being specialist.
Q: Can you tell us about a case where your involvement made a significant difference?
A: Recently I helped a learning disabled client to show that he could care for his child so that the child was rehabilitated to his care.
Q: What particular skills do you bring to a case?
A: It is hard for clients in family cases as they are so close to the issues and it can be very emotional. I can bring clarity and take some of the emotion out that clouds matters whilst remaining sympathetic. I aim to give clear advice so that clients know where they stand and can make decisions.
Q: What do you do to unwind after a busy day?
A: Spending time with my family.
Q: If you were not a solicitor what do you think you would be good at?
A: A travel writer – or is that just an excuse to have lots more holiday!
