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.

In care proceedings she predominantly represents Children’s Guardians and parents, she has particular expertise in working with clients with severe learning difficulties or mental health problems.  She has undertaken vulnerable witness training. In recent months she has represented the children in an FII case where the mother was accused of suffocating them, a 15 year old competent child who accused her father of rape, and a child accused of sexually abusing his siblings.

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