It's not often we get to talk about ourselves. Here's a little something to break the ice.

My story

“I want to use my own horrendous experience to help others.”

My own experience of the family law courts began 20 years ago when I found myself in the middle of a very acrimonious divorce. I was a new mum with two small children and thrown into a world totally unknown to me. I was scared, lonely and desperate going from solicitor to solicitor ending up paying a vast amount of money for a poor result (over £80,000 in fact). After ongoing disputes, further court hearings and without the funds to challenge my ex-husband post decree absolute, I had no other choice but to represent myself. I became a Litigant in Person. That was my journey into the legal system. Today I am better, not bitter, just thankful for the lessons those horrific years taught me. I want to use my experience to help others, men and women, who are in the same vulnerable position.

Personal services crafted specifically for you

It is extremely important that you understand what to include in court documents such as witness and position statements or how to build your skeleton arguments.

Divorce does not merely end a marriage, there is some serious collateral damage. It also affects your children, your personal well-being, your finances, your friendships and so on.

"With CT I finally felt both heard and understood. Having experience domestic violence in my marriage, followed by numerous court cases relating to Child Arrangement order for my son, it was a game changer for me to feel believed. Not only did CT do my legal documents, but more importantly they showed compassion and empathy with my situation. With CT I felt they knew their stuff and I did not have to worry. Their attention to the details of my case was impressive. We became a team, so I felt we were doing it together. Through litigation guidance and coaching I found my confidence and voice again."
