Susan joined the group in March 2022 as a family solicitor after being admitted in July 2017. She covers all aspects of family law and she regularly undertakes her own advocacy in the family courts, up to, but excluding, trial.

“I successfully ensured that a ‘without notice’ non-molestation order remained in place, followed by a contact order that the same parent only have letterbox contact with the children due to domestic abuse.  The couple were finally divorced, despite parental pressure against this, and the marital finances successfully separated. I also regularly undertook my own advocacy in Childcare proceedings, and in the Civil courts in respect of housing matters, specifically illegal eviction”.

She also regularly attended counsel at High Court hearings in relation to Child Abduction and International Child Contact.

As Susan lives in Oxford she is able to enjoy all of her hobbies in her spare time which include cycling, hiking, going to the theatre and attending music events. In addition to this, she is on the road to becoming ‘well travelled’. She enjoys learning about different cultures and has a good understanding of multi-cultural issues.
