Clare joined Woodfines’ Family team in 2016, following over twenty years of working within family law in Hertfordshire, and provides advice and support to clients across Cambridge on all aspects of family law; including divorce and separation, financial issues, children, nuptial agreements and cohabitation cases. She is collaboratively trained and an experienced mediator, who is experienced in dealing with the financial issues involved in separations and divorce cases where business partnerships are involved.
She is also a member of the Family Mediation Council, and the Law Society’s Family Law Accreditation, which recognises those with the highest levels of knowledge, skill and experience in the area of family law.
Clare takes care to fully understand her client’s needs and dedicates herself to achieving their goals. Using her mediation skills she is able to bring about good solutions whilst able to also draw on a wealth of litigious experience when the need arises. When children are involved she is especially mindful of the parties’ need to work together in the future interests of the children and is adept at bringing about long term parenting arrangements.
Clare has been accredited with the Help and Support for Separated Families (HSSF) Mark. The Help and Support for Separated Families (HSSF) Mark is part of the Help and Support for Separated Families programme and provides parents with the reassurance that the family lawyers that hold the Mark promote collaborative working between parents following separation.
Clare has been involved in raising funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust at Addenbrookes, including taking part in a fun run, and she also attempts to play netball (albeit badly) whilst providing a taxi service for her children.
Consistent advice and customer (client) support equals value for money (and an outstanding outcome)
