I am an Associate Solicitor and Collaborative Lawyer with over 12 years experience dealing with matrimonial matters and private client work.
Based predominantly in our Cardiff Office my work involves all aspects of family law relating to the breakdown of a relationship such as Divorce, co-habitation disputes and children matters with a particular emphasis on financial matters. My specialism and experience in financial matters extends to all aspects of financial disputes such as businesses, pensions, and cases of medium to high net worth.
I trained as a Collaborative Lawyer in 2012 and am one of only a few recognised Solicitors in Cardiff able to offer this service. The Collaborative approach enables clients to reach a settlement regarding all aspects of a separation, and to try to settle their differences without the need for Court intervention. This has proven to be a highly successful approach, as well as being a more positive experience for the parties involved, than the more traditional route of Court proceedings.
I appreciate that in most cases my client is going through an extremely difficult period in their life and always ensure I listen to what my client wants to ultimately achieve with my assistance. I provide practical, sensible and sound advice to enable my clients case to conclude as quickly, efficiently, and amicably as possible but I am equally committed to ensuring I achieve the best outcome for my client to protect their interests and the interests of their children.
I am a member of Resolution, accredited on the Law Society Family Law Panel, and am an active member of ‘Collaborative Law in Wales’.
I am proud to be part of a strong private client team delivering bespoke services to our clients which cover all aspects of private client work, including the provision of Wills, Probate work, and Lasting Powers of Attorney (work in which I am an appointed attorney for property and affairs). I also assist the firms Deputy, who deals with Court of Protection matters, to manage our client’s financial affairs, with a particular focus on complex family disputes.
Louise was very professional and efficient and secured me a better outcome than I had hoped for and I'd like to thank you for your help in this matter and will happily call on your services again in the future if circumstances warrant it. I will also happily recommend you to any of my friends.
