My role

I am an experienced family solicitor with over 12 years of experience, particularly specialising in the practical aspects of breakdown of a relationship and children issues. I’ve also enhanced my experience by becoming an accredited family mediator, helping parties to resolve family matters in an amicable and cost effective manner.

My experience

I joined Anthony Collins Solicitors after university in 2001. I trained with the firm before qualifying into the family team in 2004. I specialise in matrimonial law and particularly practical aspects and the division of assets following separation. I also offer practical advice to parents who are seeking to resolve arrangements for their children.

I work alongside clients in trying to resolve matters in a quick efficient cost effective way whilst ensuring the best outcomes for them.
