I became a member of the Smith Partnership family when, in 2008, the firm took over the solicitors’ I was working for. Prior to this, I ran my own practice with my husband.
Initially based at the Burton upon Trent office, in 2013 I became the Branch Manager at the Swadlincote office.
In my role I specialise in all aspects of family law, except in care proceedings, including the financial aspects of separation/ divorce and child applications.
During my career, I have represented a wide range of clients including those with multi-million pound assets, family businesses and self-employed clients.
Away from the office I spend my time on my small holding caring for my many animals which include four horses, four dogs, a cat, two bearded dragons and 21 hens! I have also been known to enjoy the odd glass of red wine at the weekend!
