Expertise

“I am particularly passionate about supporting victims of domestic abuse in breaking free from unhealthy relationships and in supporting them in being able to turn their lives and the lives of their children around for the better. I work closely with local domestic support agencies to ensure that my clients have full access to the support they need to be able to move forward feeling safe and protected.”

Sarah has worked with Tozers for over 23 years and qualified as an Associate Member of CILEX in 2009. Sarah has been instrumental in setting up our Domestic Abuse Response Team (DART).

Sarah advises on all aspects of family law including divorce, change of name deeds, acting for parents in both public law and private law children act proceedings to include complex finding of fact hearings where sexual abuse and domestic violence has been alleged.  Sarah also specialises in obtaining protective orders for victims of domestic abuse such as non-molestation orders, occupation orders and transfer of tenancy orders.  Sarah also conducts her own routine advocacy.  Sarah is able to access legal aid for those clients that qualify.

  • Acting for a mother in securing court findings of longstanding harassment, physical, psychological and emotional abuse against her ex-partner.

Can we please express our immense gratitude to Sarah for all her exceptional and hard work on this case. Today's result could not have been achieved without the collective team effort and most importantly all of the hard work that Sarah has put in behind the scenes (frequently over the course of weekends and in the early hours of the morning during the working week). Tozers are very lucky to have ‎ Sarah - I hope that she will be richly congratulated on her success in this case.
