Family solicitor and Collaborative lawyer, Head of Family Department.
Alison joined Horsey Lightly as Head of the Family Team in March 2017. She has over 20 years of experience having previously headed up the Family departments at firms in Windsor, Marlow and Maidenhead.
Her work involves dealing with family breakdown issues such as divorce or separation and any financial issues or disputes about the children's arrangements that arise from this. She also deals with cases relating to prenuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, adoption and domestic violence.
She is an accredited member of Resolution (an organisation which promotes the resolution of matrimonial disputes in an amicable and non-confrontational manner - good for the parties, particularly if there are children, and a good way of keeping costs down).
She is also a trained Collaborative Lawyer which builds on her Resolution Accredited status. Collaborative Law is a different approach to traditional Divorce cases helping clients to take control of the whole process and emerge the other side with their dignity intact.
