Experience | Key projects

Sarah has been practicing law in Camberley, Surrey since 2012, having previously worked in Berkshire and London. Sarah has been fortunate to work in Tier 1 legal practices as well as more traditional, smaller firms. Sarah has a wealth of experience acting for married and non-married clients from all sectors, including the music industry, pharmaceuticals (GSK), financial services (PwC), business owners and the uniformed services. Sarah has negotiated financial settlements for the last 20+ years, working with a range of other professionals to achieve client focused outcomes. She also assists clients to resolve issues concerning their children, adopting a sensitive approach and striving to ensure amicable solutions in which the child’s best interests are placed front and centre. Practical and pragmatic, Sarah is ever mindful of the bigger picture whilst recognising that the devil is inevitably in the detail.

Interests and Hobbies

When not working, or spending time with her husband, 2 teenage daughters and their beloved Labradoodle, Sarah can usually be found outside, in her wellies or walking boots. Sarah is also a keen member of her local singing group and enjoys all things classical: art, literature, music, dance.


Thank you again for all your help with what I have been through over the last year and a half. You gave me the confidence and belief to get through what has been the toughest time in my life. (You’ve got this) Thank you.

- Mr D
