David has established himself as a prominent family solicitor having previously led local family law departments and is considered an experienced ‘all-rounder’ with a commercial eye.

Before the law, David enjoyed a commercial career within the private legal and engineering sectors.


Since qualifying as a family solicitor David has dealt with some of the most complex and challenging cases including those to appeal as well as multiple matters on behalf of high and ultra-high net worth individuals involving cross-jurisdictional issues, overseas property and businesses.  David brings broad experience in both life and business and is an efficient problem solver.  His non-confrontational but resolute and pragmatic approach to relationship breakdown sets him apart from many family solicitors.  He provides genuine warmth and understanding at what is often an unsettling time yet remains focussed on the best outcomes for his client.

Practice Areas

David welcomes clients regardless of their circumstances all of whom are assured the same levels of expert care, service and value for money. No case is too big or small and David deals with the full range of private family matters including divorce and separation, property and financial matters, children matters relating to residence and contact, pre and post-nuptial agreements, separation agreements and co-habitation disputes on behalf of unmarried couples.

Please give David a call for a no obligation chat with a view to arranging a face to face meeting.
