Maria practices exclusively in family law with a specialism in financial remedy applications and children money work.

Maria is well known at the Bar and has won an award for her work from the Bar Council. She is extremely warm and engaging with clients and opponents. As someone who is divorced and a single mother to two young daughters she understands all too well the emotional as well as financial impact family breakdown and court proceedings has upon clients, their children and family. However her warm approach with clients belies a tenacious and dogged approach with the other side and in court. She is trusted by several loyal instructing solicitors and members of the judiciary.

Her money/ financial practice concerns cases where the parties’ wealth is substantial or else the issues complex. She is regularly involved in cases where the asset wealth is several million, involving issues of serious non-disclosure, assets outside of the jurisdiction, international issues and family Trusts. Maria’s money work includes acting for the husband/ boyfriend, wife/ girlfriend or else third party intervener including on behalf of the Crown (in asset recovery cases). Maria also undertakes Trusts of Land Act 1996 (TOLATA) matters, concerning parties who were never married.

Maria is also a strong advocate in private children law disputes including financial claims on behalf of a child under Schedule 1. She is professional but empathetic, bringing to court proceedings the “human touch”.
