Martine started her career far from the field of Law as a Manager within a large retail organisation. She then changed careers and practiced as a Solicitor for 20 years before being called to the Bar.

Family Law has always been Martine’s specialism where she has focused on care proceedings, and all aspects of children work; representing Parents, Children, Grandparents and other family members.

Martine has considerable experience in courts from Magistrates to High Court, and has dealt with cases involving gender issues, non accidental injuries, sexual abuse, fabricated illness by carers, and deprivation of liberty in children.

Her open-minded nature combined with forthright attitude allows for a realistic and sensible approach to problems faced by her clients in an effort to resolve them efficiently and effectively.
