I am the Family Team Co-ordinator, and my role is everything to do with family law – looking after the day-to-day running of the Team to ensure that everyone is busy, cases are progressed and client expectations met.

My expertise has been gathered over many years of legal practice since leaving school at 18 in 1975 and ending up at Maxwell Hodge Solicitors in 1988. I have been a qualified Chartered Legal Executive since 1983, and I like to think I have just about got the hang of the job. However, there is always something interesting happening or about to happen.

I enjoy being at Maxwell Hodge immensely because every day is different and I have worked here for so long I feel like I am part of a family.

My particular contribution is that I enjoy thinking out of the box and helping my clients through a difficult and emotional time in their lives. Many clients often tell me that, after I have advised them, they feel like a weight has been lifted from them.

I am based at our Maghull Office, and you can contact a member of the Team via ext. 6006 for Lotus or my assistant Sophie Curd on 6001.
