Download Profile

Ruth was called to the Bar in 2014. She had previously practiced as a Solicitor having qualified in 2006 and was a member of the Law Society’s Children’s Panel.

Ruth previously has had experience in criminal and immigration law but now practices exclusively in family law.  She is regularly instructed in all aspects of family law, including both children and financial remedies proceedings.

Ruth undertakes a wide range of financial remedies work and represents both wives and husbands, dealing with parties who have modest assets as well as those who hold more complex assets in multiple jurisdictions.

In Children Law proceedings, Ruth has represented parents where there have been allegations of non-accidental injuries, sexual abuse and domestic violence in both public and private law. She accepts instructions on behalf of parents, grandparents, children and local authorities.

Ruth is able to give robust advice to clients when it is in their best interest but is also sensitive to more vulnerable clients. She has a reputation for being tough in court whilst still appreciating that her clients need support and understanding at a difficult time in their lives.

Ruth is qualified to accept instructions under the Bar Council Public Access scheme.
