Background & Experience
I qualified from Queen’s University, Belfast in 2011 and went onto study a Masters degree in Corporate Governance graduating with Distinction in 2012. During my Masters degree I commenced work as a Paralegal in a city centre firm and gained experience in both contentious and non-contentious work.
In September 2013 I commenced my studies at the Institute of Professional Legal Studies at Queens University. During this time I was amongst a team of three solicitors selected to represent Northern Ireland in both National and International Mediation competitions. My Apprenticeship at this time was completed with a well-known Belfast firm doing litigation, family, and Probate work. I qualified in 2015.
Since this time I have primarily acted for client’s in relation to family and matrimonial law. I have gained extensive experience in all Court tiers and advocate for clients when able to do so. I have a particular interest in Divorce and Ancillary Relief and act in high value cases whereby I aim to achieve a fair, reasonable and prompt resolution of matters putting the client’s interest at the forefront of my actions. I also have an interest in public law proceedings to include, wardship, child abduction and Hague Convention related matters.
I am a founder of an Irish Dance school and spend most of my weekends travelling to competitions. When free I take the opportunity to meet with friends.
