Laura is a family lawyer advising individuals following the breakdown of relationships, particularly where the parties were not married.
Before moving into family and matrimonial law, Laura advised on property litigation for over 10 years covering a wide range of residential and commercial property matters. She uses this experience to advise clients on all aspects of TOLATA claims, property disputes between cohabitees and family members, disputes over the ownership and transfer of property rights as well as the protection of property rights following the breakdown of a relationship. She also advises on occupation orders and non-molestation orders between connected people.
Laura also uses her property background to assist clients with pre- and post-nuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements. Her litigation background means she has experience of using mediation and ADR to resolve disputes out of court.
With everybody's support and kind help I will be having a very happy xmas and a brilliant new year in my new home.
She has a calm, rational good sense approach. We couldn’t have been in better hands.
This is my heartfelt gratitude to you all for all your support.
Laura was absolutely epic.
Both you and the team have given me a new life.
Laura helped me navigate through this tricky period; she was quick to respond, reassure and explained things so I could understand them. Her solutions driven nature meant the process was relatively painless.
It was a very dark and uncertain time in my life and having lived that nightmare it made me realise having the right legal team makes a big difference and you provided this for me for.
Thank you for all your hard work and patience with my case! I have been always able to rely on you and I got all the support I needed.
Laura and her colleagues at Keystone made my divorce as stress free and smooth as they possibly could. I felt included in each step that was made with Laura clearly explaining everything without any legalese. Delays were only due to courts being closed and Laura dealt with everything so all I had to do was provide the information required and then check things over but Laura is so diligent in her role that nothing had to be amended at any stage. I very much appreciate the continuation of dealing with my case during Covid and this week I can draw a line under a chapter of my life and move forward.
