Since qualifying in 1976 Christopher has specialised in family law and was one of the original members of the Solicitors Family Law Association, now called Resolution. He strives to represent his clients in a constructive manner and is an obstinate opponent where necessary.
He’s been involved in contested divorces, and acted on behalf of clients in disputes about where children should live, time spent with non residential parents as well as numerous issues relating to financial provisions. Latterly he has been involved in sorting out the legal issues of the infirm and elderly by preparing Lasting Powers of Attorney or obtaining the appointment of Deputies.
Latterly he has focused on helping clients “put their affairs in order” in anticipation of possible loss of capacity or death. In his experience most people underestimate the trouble which they can put their family and friends to by not giving sufficient thought to this aspect of their affairs, particularly those who are single or those with little family.
Although now working from our Newbury office, Christopher retains his connections with his “London” clients and, as with his other clients who are scattered around Hampshire and the Home Counties, is happy to visit them in their homes.
Away from the office Christopher’s interests are principally his family and friends.
