Let me introduce myself...

I'm Kate. I'm a mum of one and I'm a barrister specialising in family law - more particularly, anything to do with children!

What's the difference between a barrister and a solicitor I hear you ask? Many column-inches have been dedicated to this debate and I won't bore you with the academic differences. All you really need to know is that both family law solicitors and barristers are here to help you navigate your family disputes - be that divorce, arrangements for your children or protecting yourself/your child from an abusive partner. So that I don't offend anyone, I will stick to the 'official' line - the majority of a solicitor's work will take place outside of Court whereas a barrister will represent you in Court and we are often called upon to provide specialist advice in the areas in which we specialise. Think of us a bit like Consultants - Derek Shepherd from Grey's Anatomy if you will...

Usually barristers are instructed by solicitors as part of a legal 'team' but this can get expensive! More recently, specialist barristers are able to be engaged directly by you - the client - to provide early specialist advice and representation.

That all sounds great but what can you actually do for me? If you have a dispute, issue or concern about your relationship, your separation or your children I am here to guide and advise you. In addition to legal advice, I can provide practical, specialist and tailored advice based on my decade of experience, advise you about litigation tactics and represent you within Mediation or Court proceedings.
