Lisa is a Chartered Legal Executive in our family department. Based in our Preston and Kendal offices, Lisa advises clients on all legal issues surrounding relationship breakdown and divorce, including finances and children. Lisa takes a practical, non-confrontational approach to family law and always ensures that her client’s priority is her priority. Divorce and relationship breakdowns are one of the most stressful times in a person’s life and Lisa’s approach ensures that her clients feel reassured that their best interests are at the forefront at all times. Lisa takes particular pride in the fact that a large proportion of her clients are referred to her by way of personal recommendation from previous clients.
Lisa is an experienced and professional advocate and finds court attendance a particularly satisfying aspect of her role. She is experienced in financial matters, including high net worth cases, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Lisa also has a wealth of experience in representing clients in what can be the particularly emotive and difficult area of children matters.
Lisa joined Napthens in 2008 and qualified as a Legal Executive in 2011 after completing her training through Cilex Tutorial College. Lisa is also the Treasurer of the Cilex Lancashire Branch.
