Nicki has practised as a solicitor since 1994, specialising for the vast majority of that time exclusively in family law. In 2001 she gained accreditation as a specialist family lawyer from Resolution, the influential association of family lawyers. Her specialist areas are financial provision and domestic abuse. Nicki was the first lawyer in York to qualify as a collaborative family lawyer in 2005.
Nicki specialises in the financial aspects of relationship breakdown as well as advice on pre-nuptial agreements designed to avoid difficulties on separation. She advises clients from all backgrounds, from entrepreneurs and their spouses to those with more usual financial circumstances. Nicki helps clients to find the process best suited to their needs, whether that is collaborative, solicitor based, or the court process.

What Others Say
Nicki was incredibly professional at all times, always available at the end of a telephone or via email to answer any queries or concerns, no matter how small. She worked incredibly hard for me to finalise matters as swiftly as possible, always with my best interests in the forefront. Nicki was able to deal with a very complex mixture of family matters for me, where other solicitors had failed to help. Nicki used her time efficiently and her fees reflected this. I am very grateful to Nicki for giving me the very best help and advice. - Mrs M
I would just like to share with you how grateful I am for the excellent result in my divorce case. I came to you distressed from my original solicitor and you kindly took over my case for me with a fantastic result. I found you helpful and compassionate. I will never forget what you did for me. - Mrs L
