Dawn qualified as a solicitor in 1987 and specialises exclusively in family law. She has over 36 years experience in this area. Dawn has been with MCP since 2003 and is an Associate in the firm.
Dawn's work covers all areas of family law but she specialises in financial disputes and issues relating to children following divorce and other relationship breakdown. She is happy to deal with all levels of cases.
She is experienced in advising successfully in very complex matters such as financial cases involving high value assets, pensions and businesses and in heavily disputed children cases with safeguarding issues. She is equally committed however to helping in cases where the issues are less complex although no less important and is happy to help in those. She has a reputation for her meticulous and thorough approach to dealing with complex financial cases.
Dawn is a member of Resolution. Family lawyers who are members of Resolution are committed to resolving disputes in a non confrontational way. They encourage sensitive cost effective solutions that consider the needs of the whole family and in particular the best interests of the children.
Dawn is a trained collaborative lawyer. Collaborative law provides a fundamentally different approach to resolving issues arising from a relationship breakdown. It is for couples genuinely seeking a fair solution to their relationship difficulties and who want to minimise the pain of the breakdown.
Dawn's other responsibilities in the firm include managing the Thetford office and heading the Marketing Department.
