David is a qualified and practising Mediator with over 36 years post-qualification experience. He is a Children Representative of the Law Society Children Panel, Family Panel Accreditation Schemes and a qualified collaborative lawyer. He is a Member of Resolution (formerly the Solicitors Family Law Association).

He is a specialist in family law having practised in this area for over 36 years. He has particular expertise relating to children's issues and has regularly represented children and parents in all types of legal proceedings, including care, adoption, special guardianship, secure accommodation, applications to enable children to emigrate with their parents, and residence and contact issues. He has regularly assisted parties following relationship breakdown to achieve acceptable solutions to all issues including resolution of financial issues. Recently he has been instructed on a regular basis to advise in connection with Nuptial Agreements which are entered into both before and during marriage.

He enjoys representing all parties in these cases, recognising the importance of maintaining a balanced and sensitive perspective in what are, very often, challenging and stressful circumstances for all members of the family. In particular, he intends to ensure he shows due respect to family members at a time which is recognised to be traumatic and painful.
