I am delighted to have joined the team at KK Law in Hemel Hempstead as a Specialist Family Lawyer and Accredited Family Mediator. I am passionate about supporting families and helping to resolve difficulties arising from relationship breakdown and separation issues.
My family work is wide-ranging and includes all issues arising from separation or other domestic circumstances including financial and child arrangements. I have experience working in Family Mediation since 2009 with my particular focus being on helping clients explore alternative methods of finding solutions and I qualified as an Accredited Family Mediator in 2010 and a Child Inclusive Mediator in 2012.
As a Member of Resolution (an organisation of family lawyers and other professionals in England and Wales formerly known as the Solicitors Family Law Association) I am committed to their guidelines which aim to foster a non-confrontational approach and to resolve cases as amicably, fairly and cost-effectively as possible.
Outside of the office, I am devoted to my family and friends and I enjoy social engagements, going to the theatre, and the occasional spot of retail therapy!
