Sarah is an international Family Law barrister at Thomas More Chambers. She has been qualified for over 20 years and has been a Resolution Mediator for over 6 years.
During this time Sarah has seen the reality of the ongoing impact of conflict on families, whether about children or finances. In her daily work as a barrister she frequently recommends that clients attend mediation as she believes many cases simply are not suitable for resolution by the courts who may not have the time, resources or skills to make the best choice for a family.
Sarah is a firm believer that there is never a "right" moment for mediation and that cases which did not start in mediation may well be the ones to end in mediation. In addition, Sarah has long experience in international issues and has mediated in situations where one person wishes to move to another country with the child of the relationship, cases in which there are allegations of domestic violence and difficulties over arrangements for children.
Sarah is a fluent Spanish speaker and is able to offer mediation in Spanish.
