I am a Partner at specialist family law firm Rayden Solicitors, and I qualified as a Children Arbitrator in 2018.  I am also a Resolution accredited specialist in Children Law (private) and Complex Financial Remedies.

As a family law solicitor I have extensive experience across all areas of family law and in particular have significant experience of disputes concerning children, with a specific expertise in contested Child Arrangements Orders and a strong track record in external relocation (leave to remove) cases.  I also handle client cases involving the many and complex financial issues arising from separation and divorce, including those with an international dimension, as well as pre and post nuptial agreements, separation agreements and cohabitation disputes.

I am very aware of the significant emotional stress that my clients face, particularly in children matters, so I am very proud to be recognised by my professional peers and clients for my calm but thorough manner in handling cases.

“Emily is a superb lawyer.  Calm, thorough with a great eye for detail.” Professional referee

“Emily is a star and simply wonderful to deal with! She is direct, succinct, highly professional, organised, crystal clear and very efficient. She is absolutely brilliant and it is a complete pleasure to work with her!” Client testimonial

I have practised family law exclusively since qualifying in 2002.

After training and working in London firms for 12 years I joined Rayden Solicitors in 2012 and am based at our Berkhamsted office.  I am also able to meet clients in London or at one of Rayden Solicitors’ other offices in St Albans, Beaconsfield and Hampstead.
