Debra is a highly experienced divorce and family law solicitor working in our Leeds city centre office.

Debra’s strong track record spans 11 years covering all areas of family law and relationship breakdown.

Her extensive experience includes divorce, financial settlements, the separation of unmarried couples, pre- and post- nuptial agreements, and living together agreements.

Debra has particular expertise in cases involving unmarried couples, and gained Specialist Accreditation from Resolution in 2019 in this area. She also has experience dealing with inheritances and trusts.

She enjoys the challenge of complicated cases, and working with clients towards creative solutions to meet the client’s individual circumstances and needs.

Debra is a strong believer in attempting to resolve matters without the need to refer to the Court, encouraging her clients to consider Mediation and other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution. That being said, at times a Court process is appropriate, and Debra is equally comfortable dealing with matters in this forum. She ensures that clients have all of the options to hand to enable them to make informed decisions that are right for them.

Clients commend Debra for her honesty and straightforward approach, and applaud her empathy and understanding. She treats each client as an individual, taking time to establish what they are seeking and providing realistic and practical advice as to how this could be achieved.
