Margaret is an expert in all aspects of family law work, gained during a career spanning almost twenty years.

Her knowledge and expertise are particularly evident in relation to complex matrimonial finance issues, often with an international element. She has considerable experience in dealing also with complex issues relating to children, advising in respect of pre- and post- nuptial agreements and property disputes between unmarried couples.

Margaret is a trained collaborative lawyer, and can help resolve family and relationship issues using that process as a dispute resolution mechanism.

Prior to embarking on her legal career, Margaret worked in the Court Service at the Principal Registry of the Family Division. This gives her a unique insight into the day-to-day operation of the Family Justice System, the work a Judge is required to undertake, and how they do it. Her clients benefit from this different but invaluable perspective.
