Miles Preston

Work Department

Family Law




Julia qualified in 1984. Since then, she has practised solely in the area of family law with particular interest in complex financial cases, often involving trusts and overseas assets. She has carved out a niche for herself acting for third parties intervening in cases where that third party’s interests are before the court in finance and property proceedings between husband and wife.

Julia has several reported cases which are leading authorities on issues ranging from costs allowances by way of maintenance provision to the valuation of minority interests in private, family companies.

She is a skilled negotiator and aims to address and resolve issues cost-effectively. Another strength is her direct and clear advice. Julia also has a strong sense of humour which often makes for a well developed solicitor/client relationship.

She has received plaudits from both Chambers and Partners and Legal 500. Legal 500 has said that she is “highly professional, no-nonsense and offers straight and unbiased advice”.

Julia was educated at Haberdashers’ Aske’s, Elstree. She graduated from Southampton University and joined Radcliffes & Co where she determined to specialise in family law, having spent six months of her traineeship assisting Miles Preston, with whom she has continued to work ever since. They are two of the three founding partners of Miles Preston & Co.

Julia was one of the first solicitors in England to be accredited as a specialist by Resolution.
