Kelly’s empathy towards her clients means they trust her to protect their best interests. She is robust to defend those interests too.

Kelly qualified as a solicitor in 2000. She enjoyed family law from the start and her training and previous work experience centred on this.

Since joining us, she has achieved membership to the Law Society’s Advanced Family Law Panel. She has shown that she has a deep level of knowledge and competence in specialist areas of family law. These areas were child arrangements and domestic abuse and violence.
