Helen West

Associate Solicitor - Child Law, Family Law

What do you do?

I work in family law advising on arrangements for children, divorce, financial settlements following the breakdown of relationships, civil partnership issues and disputes between cohabiting couples. I also act on emergency applications for non-molestation and occupation orders including obtaining expedited injunctions orders.

Tell us about your clients

My clients often come to see me at very difficult points in their life, when they are feeling vulnerable and in need of clear guidance, compassion and understanding. My priority is to ensure that they are safe, informed and reassured.

Why do your clients like working with you?

Having acted for over a thousand families since qualifying in 2006, I treat each individual with sensitivity and dignity. At a time when emotions understandably run high, I work hard to make sure that my clients feel supported at each stage of their case.
