Described by Chambers UK as having “ a stellar reputation”, Margaret is recognised as one of the region’s leading family lawyers, particularly in the area of complex matrimonial finance.

Margaret divides her time between our Newcastle and North Yorkshire offices, as well as seeing clients at our consulting rooms in Leeds, York and London. Her reputation for delivering firm and robust advice to a whole range of business owners including faming families, continues to attract clients from all over the country – with an increasing following in London and the Home Counties.

With more than 25 years’ experience as a family lawyer, Margaret specialises in cases involving significant assets and complex issues. She has a particular interest and expertise in landed estates and farming cases, both of which often involve disputes relating to trust assets, valuation and liquidity.

Collaboratively trained, Margaret offers clients the opportunity to deal with the issues arising following the breakdown of their marriage within the collaborative process, rather than going to court.

Margaret chairs Tees Valley Resolution family law group.
