Collaborative Lawyer & Senior Solicitor 

Work with a collaborative divorce lawyer at Sydney Mitchell Solicitors.

Sydney Mitchell LLP, 2233, Coventry Road, Sheldon, Birmingham B26 3NL

I came into the profession to work alongside individuals who needed a reassuring, guiding hand at an emotional and financially vulnerable time in their life. This may not be the end but also the beginning of a relationship when you want some pre-nuptial guidance. As an experienced family solicitor and collaborative lawyer, I have had the privilege of helping many clients to address and resolve challenges in their lives. It may be a family business, specific health needs, involving children or countless other facts specific to your family. In person or with the use of digital platforms, the focus for me is to ensure the best possible outcome for your family.
For me it’s not just a job, it’s a passion, as for over 12 years I have run a course, outside of work that helps with the practical and emotional challenges that individuals can face following a separation.
