About Me

I was admitted to the bar in 1991.  I took silk in 2009.  Before that I was a solicitor and before that a paralegal.

I try to do work in any area I am offered, but I will not appear or work without an instructing solicitor.

My hourly and daily rates vary depending on the type of work and the client: if you want to get an idea of my fees, email me. If you have a different fee proposal let me know and I Amy be prepared to accomodate you. Feel free to ask me for a CV.

About The Dog

The dog is my cherished Meadow, the chocolate labrador who is 4 years old.

She had a hard life: her first family decided she was too much trouble so they gave her back to her breeder.

Luckily for her it was our son’s birthday and our first choccy, Romany, had died a few months earlier.  He was very close to her, so we ‘adopted’ a choccy.
