I am a lecturer on the Bar Professional Training Course with a specialism in family law, professional ethics and advocacy. I am a barrister and I still practise at the Bar of England and Wales as an associate tenant at 9 Park Place Chambers. I have been recommended in Chambers and Partners UK and represented clients in several notable cases. I conduct cases in all areas within the field of family law and my practice has included public children law, private children law, international cases, financial remedy proceedings and cohabitation disputes. Prior to specialising, I spent the first 3 / 4 years of practice acting in general civil, family and criminal matters. I take an active involvement in the University mooting provision and in assisting students seeking to join the legal profession.
