"I’m a working single mum so I can empathise with people who are now going through the hurt and trauma of separation. As head of the Family Department at Hopkins Law I specialise in divorce issues acting for a vast range of clients from victims of domestic violence, successful businesswomen, stay-at-home mums and wives of millionaires."
I also specialise in children’s issues whether it be when one parent has abducted a child and the remaining parent needs help to fight back or when the child needs representation themselves because the parents are ‘at war’ and can’t agree on the best way forward.
I’m also a trained family mediator who can perhaps help you both talk through your problems and make it work without going to Court. I’m a very proud member of Resolution - a legal body that is keen to encourage an amicable resolution to legal situations - this means that I am committed to encouraging a non-confrontational approach to resolving family disputes. That way both the emotional and financial costs of divorce or family breakdown are minimised for those involved - which has got to be a good thing.
As a divorce lawyer and trained mediator I’ve seen so many women over the years who have looked for a supportive network and been unable to find anything that when I was introduced to Women Scorned I jumped at the chance to get involved. It’s great to be part of a site that not only helps women find answers to their problems but also allows them the space to express their feelings and find others in the same position.
So how can I help you? By giving practical, realistic, straightforward, sensible options and common sense solutions to help you move forward with your life. I aim not to be the sort of lawyer who becomes embroiled in ‘the fight’ and I never lose sight of the fact that, at the bottom of any divorce, there are human feelings to be taken into account.
