Call Victoria

I advise on all aspects of private family law and work between our Bath and Wells offices.

What I enjoy most is round-table meetings, working jointly with the ‘other side’ and their solicitor, taking a collective and holistic approach. Our aim is to achieve an outcome, which means that all parties can move on and actually speak to each other afterwards! This is particularly important where there are children involved. I’m also an active member of Resolution, an organisation of lawyers committed to resolving family matters in a non-acrimonious and child-focused manner.

I enjoy helping my clients and have been named in the respected legal directory, Chambers & Partners, as an ‘associate to watch’, as a result of my clients feedback. Also in Legal 500 I have been described as ‘calm but robust, and again pragmatic’,

In my spare time I enjoy skiing and running, having competed in events such as the Bristol Half Marathon, 10K and Tough Mudder. I also try to visit a new country every year!

  • A trained mediator, Victoria is praised by sources for her "fair and conciliatory approach." Also how "she really thinks about how her work impacts on the client and tries to assist in moving things forward."

Cohabitation Nation: Cohabitation Agreements

The concept of a ‘common law spouse’ is not recognised under English Law. This means that often people mistakenly believe that the law offers cohabitating couples protection, especially when they have been in a relationship for a number of years. However, the law treats married couples and cohabiting couples differently. It is important for cohabiting…
