Career

Margaret is recognised as one of the North's leading family lawyers, particularly in the area of complex matrimonial finance.

Margaret divides her time between our Newcastle and North Yorkshire offices, as well as seeing clients at our consulting rooms in Leeds, York and London. 

With more than 25 years’ experience as a family lawyer, Margaret specialises in cases involving significant assets and complex issues, attracting clients from all over the country – with an increasing following in London and the Home Counties. She has a particular interest and expertise in landed estates and farming cases, both of which often involve disputes relating to trust assets, valuation and liquidity.

Collaboratively trained, Margaret offers clients the opportunity to deal with the issues arising following the breakdown of their marriage within the collaborative process, rather than going to court.
