My role

I am a partner in the life stage planning team at Anthony Collins Solicitors. I predominantly deal with divorce and financial matters, as well as associated children issues. I am a resolution accredited specialist, for both financial matters and those involving children, as well as being an accredited family mediator and authorised to conduct Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAMs).

My experience

I have particular experience of dealing with complex financial matters arising from divorce, especially those where there are business assets pension or trust assets. With regard to child matters, I have acted in a number of parental alienation cases as well as those where allegation of violence have been made against a parent or child.

As an accredited family mediator I have mediated numerous financial and child related matters. I receive most of my instructions from other solicitors as well as directly from the court.
