I am an experienced family Lawyer having been practising since 1996. I cover all aspects of family law including divorce, finances arising from divorce, child arrangement disputes and domestic abuse. I also deal with preparation of cohabitation and separation agreements as well as pre -nuptial agreements.
I grew up in Cricklade, went to University in Southampton (Solent) and trained as a Lawyer in Portsmouth, qualifying as a Legal Executive before attending Guildford College of Law on a part time basis to qualify as a Solicitor.
I am a Resolution accredited specialist in advanced financial provision and private children law
I am mad about animals. I am a Trustee of a local wildlife centre where I also volunteer, and I have 3 cats and a dog. I am a fanatical follower of boxing and I collect boxing memorabilia with a signed photograph of Muhammad Ali being my prized possession. I also have an unfulfilled ambition to pay homage to Elvis by visiting Graceland. All of my pets are girls so I’ve yet to name a pet after the King himself.
I am a married with one beautiful, cheeky daughter.
“Michelle, you have been absolutely amazing through what is and has been the worst time of my life. Thank you for all you have done for me and my son. It scares me to think where we would be if we hadn’t had your help, advice and support and will forever be grateful."
"Michelle was my Lawyer when I went through my divorce. She made the process as straightforward as feasibly possible, providing timely advice and support at all stages of what was a lengthy process. Her experience in the field was obvious from the outset, making what seemed a daunting prospect for me less stressful than I'd anticipated. I very much appreciated the occasional injection of light-hearted humour, in what was an emotionally-charged life-changing event. It certainly made me feel more relaxed when coping with some of the issues that had to be dealt with. I wholeheartedly recommend Michelle to anyone wanting a capable, helpful and experienced lawyer, with her highly personable and sympathetic nature being hugely beneficial when dealing with the most sensitive of divorce issues."
