More about Debbie

I know only too well how difficult it can be to represent yourself in court.  And I know this from personal experience.

I managed my own divorce from start to finish. I attended court on my own without a solicitor or barrister – as a litigant in person.

My case was complex and involved repeated court hearings and a mountain of legal paperwork.  But I kept going and after years of court hearings, I was successful, and a judge awarded me everything I asked for.

I was very clear about what I wanted, I was reasonable and I did not give up.

I have used the same approach to help others and I can help you too.

Armed with my approach, knowledge and wealth of experience, I can help you to achieve your desired outcome.

My legal background

I have a postgraduate law degree and my studies included: legal principles, legal theory and legislation.

I have written extensively for legal journals, international law publications and covered legal cases online for a number of years.

My background means I am well-versed in legal jargon and how the legal system works.  This knowledge has stood me in good stead when dealing with legal issues and concepts in court or in writing.

All the documentation I work on for you will be well-written, clearly argued, relevant and effective.

CLOCK Legal Companion

During my law degree I volunteered as a Legal Companion for the Community Legal Outreach Keele (CLOCK) project in Brighton courts.

As a CLOCK volunteer I gave free legal help and support to those who attended the CLOCK desk.  I helped with court paperwork, court hearings and referrals to specialist organisations.
