An Excellent Family Law Service

I am a solicitor and head of the family team at Salmons. I have over 20 years experience in family law. I have seen and heard everything over the years! I am passionate about my client’s and will always do my upmost to improve your situation and get a good result for you. I aim to respond to messages/emails immediately and ensure I am always contactable. My Assistant is Alexe Millward and she also has an excellent relationship with our clients.  You will always be able to reach one of us. We have now implemented a direct line to our department so that it is even easier to reach us.

I can help with divorce, separation, children disputes, financial settlements, domestic violence. This list is not exhaustive and if you have a situation in any area of family law contact me to see how I can help. If you have received a solicitor’s letter do not sit at home worrying about it, get in touch and we will offer you an appointment at short notice. Our client’s always say that they were nervous about the initial meeting but they felt so much better afterwards. I can offer meetings via zoom/Microsoft teams, telephone or face to face.

We can also help with advice at the start of your relationship, when things are easier to discuss than at the end. We can help with cohabitation agreements (if you are planning to live with a partner). These agreements regulate how you will live together, and what will happen in the event that you separate. We also provide pre-nuptial agreements before you marry.

Take that first step to improve your situation!
