Shannon joined the firm in October 2019 as a Trainee Solicitor, having completed her Law Degree at the University of Hertfordshire in 2017. Shannon then went on to complete the LPC combined with a Masters in Law at The University of Hertfordshire in September 2019. Shannon qualified as a solicitor in November 2021 and now specialises in Family Law, an area which she excelled in and enjoyed the most during her training.
Shannon aims to resolve family disputes in a sensitive, constructive and cost effective way. She is keen to help families and clients any way she can.
Shannon advises on the following areas of family law:
- Relationship breakdown – helping couples navigate their way through separation, divorce and dissolution.
- Financial settlements as part of the divorce or civil partnership dissolution process – to ensure appropriate financial arrangements are made and that tricky issues around the matrimonial home and pension sharing are resolved;
- Disputes about children – helping to agree matters such as where children should live, who they should have contact with and arrangements where one parent intends to move abroad; and
- Family safeguarding – providing support and advice to clients in cases of domestic violence or abuse.
Shannon is based primarily at our Gravesend office but advises clients throughout Kent.
