Philippa was born and bought up in Mumbles, Swansea, attending Bishop Gore Comprehensive School before attending the London School of Economics and City of London Law School.

She qualified as a solicitor in 1993 in Cambridge and has been a specialist high street family lawyer ever since, both in Cambridge and the West Country, helping clients through the difficulties of relationship breakdown.

Her experience has taught her that no two cases are the same each turning on their own individual circumstances. She likes to employ a constructive problem-solving approach to achieve the best results for her clients.

Philippa specialises in divorce and complex financial cases involving business and pension considerations, but is experienced in all aspects of family and divorce law.

Philippa said "I believe firmly that clients should be able to access good quality specialist legal advice 'on the high street', and I aim to provide an efficient and professional service right in the heart of the community".

Having returned to live in Swansea, Philippa is based in the Mumbles office.
