I provide clients with advice on all family law matters, including separation, divorce, cohabitation and child contact.

I specialise in adoption cases and I help and guide prospective adopters through the legal process.

I have a keen interest in cases dealing with the welfare of children and child psychology.


“We’d been warned from the outset that our legal adoption process was likely to be difficult so it was great that, from our very first meeting with Emma, we had full confidence in her ability to guide us through.

Throughout she was friendly and accessible, always taking time to explain and answer questions. She was also very thorough, organised and calm, even when events took unexpected turns. We couldn’t have hoped for a better advisor and representative.” Recent adopter
