When dealing with human law, personal service is guaranteed
Employment law

I have over 15 years of experience in this field which includes Restrictive Covenants, Directors Duties and Breach of Confidence claims and related Injunction work, Bullying and Settlement Agreement.


Assisting two or more parties resolving a dispute, legal or otherwise.  At Human Law Mediation I offer fixed fee solutions based on an initial free assessment of your case.


Disputes over Wills, Trusts and Probate often occur at times of emotional vulnerability and distress. Dealing with such issues with sensitivity at an early stage can potentially avoid costly court proceedings. I act for executors, personal representatives and for individuals claiming against estates or other parties.


Dealing with the personal and financial affairs of a close relative or friend can be a stressful and emotional process.  My professional help deals with issues arising when administering a person’s estate.

Mental Capacity

If someone close to you loses the ability to make their own decisions it can be difficult to get the support you need from both medical and financial institutions. I can help you at this difficult time by guiding you through the available options.

Court of Protection

Where a person has no Power of Attorney and has lost capacity, I can assist in appointing a Deputy to undertake that role and will make the necessary application to the Court of Protection which deals with issues relating to people who no longer have the ability to make crucial decisions about their lives.
