At_ChambersI am a barrister and mediator based in Preston at 15 Winckley Square and I work throughout Lancashire, Cumbria and Cheshire.

I have over 20 years of experience in financial and property disputes, particularly those arising from divorce and separation.  My other key area of work is building litigation. I have good practical knowledge of the technical aspects of building matters and have been instructed by local authorities in relation to building disputes, building arbitration and planning issues.

Outside of the law I have a variety of interests: I have built and flown my own aircraft, competed internationally as a mountain runner and have managed several building projects including the complete renovation of the barrister’s Chambers in Preston. I also helped to create the direct access portal as a service for other barristers and mediators.

If you are involved in a legal dispute then it is important to know your options.   The right advice at the start can help you to avoid a lot of unnecessary delay and expense.  If you don’t have a solicitor I can help you decide whether direct access is an appropriate option for you.  I can also help with information about other forms of dispute resolution (mediation, collaborative law, arbitration and neutral evaluation) or help you to find the right solicitor if you need one.

If you contact me via this web site I will respond personally to your enquiry within 24 hours.
