Legal 500 Guide

"I was very stressed and worried about the case, as never had any such experience in my whole life. Luckily i came across Ms Kitchman and she handled my case very professionally and empathetically.....I strongly recommend her as first choice in any family legal matters. I wish her all the best in her career as a family solicitor and hope and wish that she continues to help others in the same way she did help me."

More about Alison

We asked Alison:

Q: What do you enjoy most about your job?
A: Helping clients divorce decently, often without having to go to court. I always have the client’s interests and well-being at heart, and work with them to find practical solutions, managed in a cost efficient way.

Q: What can clients expect from you?
A: A willingness to listen combined with clear, sensible and realistic advice. I have solid technical knowledge in family law whilst also being compassionate, caring and down to earth.

Q: What are your interests outside of work?
A: As an active person, I enjoy military fitness training, spinning, running and yoga. I am a proud finisher of Tough Mudder, X-Runner, Major Series and Race for Life, often taking part in charity challenges.

I also enjoy flying – I have been in a microlight, hot air balloon and a helicopter and my favourite ride at Epcot in Florida is “Soarin” – which manages to combine both my love of travelling and my love of flying. At home, I like chilling to “Sunday Love” songs, gardening and spending time with family and my two cats Ennis and Farah.
