We asked Helen:
Q: What do you enjoy most about your job?
A: I enjoy helping people through a really difficult period of their life. Experiencing any sort of breakup can be extremely traumatic and I think it is very important to be sympathetic and understanding throughout the process. For me this understanding approach goes hand in hand with giving the appropriate legal advice.
Q: What can clients expect from you?
A: Someone who is very dedicated to their case and deals with everything in a prompt and efficient manner.
I am very approachable and easy to speak to and my advice is realistic and honest.
Q: Why did you choose to specialise in this area?
A: I was an assistant to a family solicitor for many years, and I quickly realised that this was the area of law I wanted to specialise in. I like that no day is ever the same and that each and every case is unique.
