General Information

 An Accredited Civil & Commercial and Workplace and Employment Mediator, I have over 30 years experience of working in the legal profession with 25 years in Costs.

With over 25 years advocacy experience, an excellent listener and an eye for detail, you will have a Mediator who will always be guided by the fact that this is the participant`s Mediation and I will come to the Mediation with an open mind and no pre conceptions. 

I have a sense of humour which can be deployed where appropriate and firmly believe that there are no problems only solutions which can be found through mediation. There is nothing that cannot be mediated.

I am willing and able to travel anywhere. I am a Member of the Council of Association Of Costs Lawyers. I also undertake pro bono Community Mediations for Smile Mediation Ltd throughout Greater Manchester and Lancashire.


During my legal career, I have dealt with and been involved with:

In addition, I have a special interest in Education having been a Chair of Governors for 16 years in an Outstanding School. I can see the merits of mediation in an educational environment in dealing with Special Educational needs provision; building disputes; exclusions, staff issues and complaints.

Hobbies and Interests
