I attended Dover Grammar School for Girls many years ago and read law at Nottingham Trent University, graduating in 1991. I then completed my Law Society finals at the London College of Law.
I was fortunate to be offered a training contract locally with Hardmans and qualified as a Solicitor in 1996. I became a Partner in 2001, and Senior Partner in 2004, after the untimely death of our previous Senior Partner, Jonathan Daniell.
I specialise in all types of family law and am a member of the Law Society’s Family Law Accreditation Scheme. I have also written for “the Kentish Partnership” on Civil Partnerships.
I practised in Wills and Probate early in my career, and continue to undertake residential conveyancing and feel I am particularly adept at grasping complex issues, which cross over into other areas of law. I have been instructed in a number of “big money” financial remedy cases and have experience in all Courts, up to the Court of Appeal. I believe that it is vitally important to listen to my clients and provide sensible pragmatic advice at all times.
Outside of the office, I enjoy attempting to become a better cook and travelling with my husband. I can also sometimes be seen competing at dog agility competitions with my pug cross, Arachis.
What my Clients say
“No words can express how thankful I am for your help throughout, what you know has been a very difficult process. Your help and knowledge has been invaluable and I am immensely grateful also for your kindness and patience. I couldn’t have managed it without you.”
“Many thanks Eleanore for all your hard work before the Court date and keeping me grounded on the day”.
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help and support in buying my first home. I can’t thank you enough.”
“I want to thank you for all you have done for me. I’m enjoying life once again and wouldn’t have done it without you.”
