Adrian is a family man who is able to relate easily to his clients. He uses his experience and knowledge to guide people through what is often a very traumatic and difficult period in their life. His clients say: "always supportive and understanding during very anxious time for me..." (Mrs W) "...a great help throughout my case enabling my wife and I to reach compromises over the children and finances that we never thought possible when we initially separated" (Mr T)


Adrian has been qualified for over 20 years and has dealt with a wide range of cases with varying degrees of complexity and issues. Adrian now specialises in all public law matters involving Care Proceedings and all Pre Proceedings meetings with the Social Services. He regularly attends Case Conferences with clients where the Local Authority/Social Services are considering placing children on Child Protection Plans. For a number of years he was a member of the Law Society Family Law Accreditation Scheme (formerly the Family Law Panel) and remains a full member of Resolution (formerly the Solicitors Family Law Association). Adrian is also a member of the Association of Lawyers for Children and since 2011 has been a member of the Law Society's Children's Panel entitling him to represent both parents and children in Care proceedings.


Adrian is particularly proud of the relationships he establishes with clients. This helps him to safeguard his clients’ best interests speedily and amicably.


Adrian enjoys being outdoors, either on a golf course or a motorbike. With four children such pastimes are sometimes few and far between but children permitting, Adrian enjoys the cinema and dining out.
