Experience

Molly is a Solicitor in our Family Team based in our Norwich office.

As a member of Resolution, a national organisation of family justice professionals who are committed to resolving family disputes in a constructive manner, Molly advises on all aspects of private family law. Molly carefully guides her clients through the divorce and separation process clearly and efficiently. Molly also advises on financial and children matters, considering the most appropriate methods of dispute resolution for clients, including mediation, negotiation, arbitration and court proceedings, depending on the client’s individual circumstances. Molly advises victims of domestic abuse, who have separated from, or who are considering separating from their perpetrator. This advice can include that relating to injunctions and action to take to ensure the client's safety.

Molly advises on international family issues, including obtaining English court orders to reflect the terms of a foreign court order, so that they can be implemented against property in England and Wales. 

Molly works closely with colleagues in other departments to ensure the best advice and strategy, as well as other professionals such as financial advisors and pensions on divorce experts.

Molly assists victims of domestic violence on a pro bono basis, by volunteering for the Lighthouse Domestic Abuse Charity. Molly is a member of the Family Law Panel and is taking part in the free advice initiative for victims of domestic violence, through the Only Mums and Dads Enterprise. Molly regularly volunteers for the Suffolk Law Centre, as well as for Norfolk Community Law Service, as part of their pro bono legal clinics, to assist individuals who may not otherwise have access to the legal advice they need.
