With over 25 years’ experience in family law, Nicki specialises in the financial aspects of relationship breakdown - and particularly complex cases involving family businesses, multiple properties, and complicated pension arrangements.
A skilled mediator and York’s first collaborative family lawyer, Nicki champions Alternative Dispute Resolution processes which avoid a lengthy court process and can lead much more quickly and cost effectively to a successful resolution.
Her exceptional track record includes advising clients on the more traditional methods of resolving issues surrounding family breakdowns.
“During my divorce, Nicki provided unwavering legal support with her rock-steady focus on achieving the best outcome for me. Her ability to break down the issues into a step-by-step process was so reassuring. She quickly identified the critical factors, which she addressed by the most efficient means, for example making a phone call rather than waiting for emails. I was confident that Nicki had a real understanding of the situation and trusted her completely to deal with difficult negotiations.
She is clear and concise but at the same time compassionate. She understands the desolation of divorce, while guiding with a steady hand toward an optimal resolution. Communications with Nicki and her lovely legal assistant, Lynne, were excellent. I was always kept in the loop and never left to wonder what was happening. I chose Nicki because she is an accredited Collaborative Lawyer using cooperative strategies, however when the going got tough she was calm, courteous, and professional. I feel so fortunate to have found Nicki, she had my back every step of the way and can’t recommend her highly enough.”

“I can’t believe that we have finally got to the end of this. I must say that, having your support over the past two years, has been greatly appreciated and made a huge difference to my health and wellbeing… But, the part that I have most valued, has been the open discussions and the opportunity to talk to someone who understood the situation and was able to offer expert guidance.”
Jones Myers Client, 2021
“…She is the best matrimonial lawyer I have known during my 39 years in practice – with her depth of knowledge and attention to detail, her tenacity in seeking the best settlement for her clients and still maintaining an empathetic approach is a rare skill.”
Jones Myers Client, 2020
“From the first meeting, I was treated to first class advice which was well-tempered and clearly drawn from years of experience. At times I was advised to take a more strategic route which, I believe, led to a more beneficial outcome. I don’t often recommend people or companies, but I would whole heartedly recommend Nicki and her team.”
