Practice Overview

Becky covers all areas of Family Law, in particular financial remedy and care proceedings. She is friendly and approachable but a fierce advocate on her clients’ behalf.

In financial remedy proceedings she deals with cases ranging from those dominated by need to those where the assets are substantial or difficult to trace. Recently she has successfully represented a farmer after a short marriage with pre-marital assets and a wife who was unaware that her husband had any assets let alone a £3.5million property portfolio.

In care proceedings she predominantly represents parents, she has particular expertise in working with clients with severe learning difficulties or mental health problems. In recent months she has represented a mother with severe learning difficulties accused of  causing significant harm to her premature baby; a mother who due to her learning difficulties was unable to manage her son’s diabetes and a mother whose child was kidnapped and brought to the UK from Jamaica without her consent.

In private law proceedings she represents both mothers and fathers in intractable child arrangement disputes often where there are allegations and counter allegations of abuse.

Becky is trained in direct access and is a fully accredited mediator for both children and finances. Many of her direct access clients are personal recommendations.
