About Laura

I am an associate in the Family team in Richmond. I studied English Language and Linguistics at the University of York, before obtaining my GDL and LPC at the University of Law (Guildford). I trained and qualified as a solicitor in 2019 in a well-known city and regional firm I then joined Moore Barlow in August 2021 where I work out of their Richmond office undertaking matters independently and also, I assist the partners Jan Galloway and Victoria Walker with their cases.

My clients are those with family law issues ranging from those who seek to protect their assets at the commencement of the relationship to those seeking guidance upon the breakdown of the same. I have experience in dealing with various aspects of family law, including divorce, financial matters, and arrangements for children. I have advised clients within voluntary proceedings, various dispute resolution forums and where matters are before the court.

I have assisted on financial cases with complex features, including where there are issues in relation to properties and land and where inheritance has significantly affected the parties’ financial position. I also have experience of drafting (and advising upon) prenuptial agreements and have assisted on cases involving post-nuptial agreements.

I advise clients in relation to arrangements for (and applications in respect of) children. This includes resolving disputes as to with whom the children spend time on a day-to-day basis, with whom they live, and applications to relocate within England and Wales.

As a member of Resolution, I am committed to helping clients resolve matters in as constructive and conciliatory a manner as possible. I endeavour to provide clients with advice that is both practical and empathetic.

Outside of work, I enjoy going running and occasionally put in an appearance at the gym. I have a love of country music and Nashville, Tennessee. Most of all, I love spending time with my miniature (but incredibly loud) dachshund, Pippa.
