Paul is an experienced family lawyer who, for over 20 years, has dealt with a range of diverse family law cases, from child law, parental alienation, drafting pre-nuptial agreements, through to divorce and separation. He has also advised on property disputes between cohabiting couples.
During his career, Paul has worked as a divorce and family lawyer in Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Cambridgeshire. He is a long-term member of Resolution and trained in both Collaborative Law and as a Family Mediator.
Being an experienced divorce lawyer, Paul is mindful of the complex and diverse reasons for family breakdown and the impact that this can have on the parties involved, their children and wider family. He provides a highly personalised, pragmatic and sensitive approach using his experience to realistically advise clients on their particular and individual circumstances – the main aim is to resolve matters, whether that is between the parties themselves, through mediation, or within the collaborative law framework, at private Hearings, or in Court.
Paul has a BA Hons degree, CPE and LPC. He is a trained and qualified Collaborative Lawyer and is a member and Treasurer of Thames Valley Collaborative Pod. Paul is also an experienced Family Mediator and is a member and Treasurer of Reading Family Mediation as well.
Away from being a family lawyer, Paul writes and records music for theatre as well as his own songs/soundtracks. He has had a number of pieces performed in theatre productions. Paul follows Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.
