She attended Birmingham College of Law to complete her Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course and was awarded a Law Degree in 2010.

Anna helps clients with all areas of private family work, from Divorce, to issues involving Children and Financial Matters, including cases where there has been an element of Domestic Abuse involved. She can also advise clients who are contemplating Marriage, or setting up home together, in protecting assets and advising the best course of action for their circumstances. Anna is a member of Resolution, a body of some 6,500 members comprising family lawyers and other professionals committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes, whose members follow a code of practice that promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems.
