Debra has lived all her life in Sunderland and has spent all of her working life in the town. She began working as a family fee earner 28 years ago, going on to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive. She has undertaken all aspects of family law but now specialises with financial matters arising from a marriage or relationship breakdown. She also receives a lot of work from victims of Domestic Violence/Abuse, working closely with and receiving referrals from DV support workers. Throughout her career she has acted for both applicants and respondents in proceedings for child arrangement orders.
Outside work, Debra lives with her husband. Her two oldest children have now fled the nest but the youngest (and most challenging) remains dependant despite being in gainful employment. She enjoys long walks with her husband and dog Maddi, a much loved family pet. She is a keen cook which her husband and children much appreciate!
She has always taken pride in her work and the relationship she has with her clients. Comments she has received recently include: “Thank you so much for all your help. I’ll never forget how kind you were… you made a really difficult time easier.” And “Thank you for all your help, support and advice. I really appreciate all the effort and hard work you have put in. It is due to your caring and professional manner that has ensured the success of all my cases.”
