Associate Solicitor

Chloë understands that the breakdown of a family relationship impacts each client differently and she provides a tailored service to all of her clients. She gives pragmatic and realistic advice on all legal issues arising on divorce or separation, including financial claims and the arrangements for children.

Chloë was called to the Bar in 2013 (having completed the Bar Professional Training Course at Nottingham Law School) and was awarded a Lord Diplock Major Scholarship by Middle Temple for her talent as a legal advocate. She now works as a solicitor-advocate (with Higher Rights of audience). Her skills in advocacy mean that clients benefit from her skills as a solicitor and as an advocate, and she often undertakes the court advocacy at both financial and children act hearings on behalf of her clients.

Chloë has volunteered for the National Centre for Domestic Violence and the Youth Offending Service. She regularly supports clients where domestic abuse is raised as an issue.

Chloë has solid experience in complex financial claims whilst completing her legal training. She joined Raydens in March 2017 and has continued to build upon her experience in financial and children cases. Chloë is a supporter of alternatives to litigation where possible and she has recently concluded a case within the relatively new family law arbitration process.

Chloë is a member of Resolution.

Chloë is based in our Bishop’s Stortford office.

Your care, time and support have without a doubt changed my life forever. Navigating the family court has been one of the most unpleasant and terrifying things I have ever done and I have no idea how I would have managed to remain above water without you guys and Raydens beside me.

…you have been a fantastic solicitor for me this past 6 months. You have given me the space when I needed it. Been patient with me, had to put up with my tantrums and emotions and still managed to keep me sane through all of this. Your counsel has been first class.

Client on Chloë

A very personal and heartfelt thank you for all your support and help through what was a seriously challenging time in my life. I can now finally close this chapter and move on to the next (more fun) bit!

Client on Chloë

I felt that I have been in very good hands and have trusted all of you to work in my best interests and I have been grateful for your responsiveness, your excellent advice, your straight forward explanations and frankness about all matters we have dealt with along the way over the last year and a half.

Client on Chloë

Thank you again for your incredible responsiveness and reliability. I have great confidence in the advice that I am receiving from you at what is the most difficult time of my life and that is making a big difference for the positive.

Client on Chloë

I really wanted you to know how much I appreciate what you have done, especially given that you took on my case from another firm that left it in a real mess.

Client on Chloë

I just wanted to thank you both for providing me with a fantastic service over the past year and guiding me through such a difficult period of my life. Albeit, it was stressful at times, your professionalism, advice and confidence in the matter really helped and I couldn’t have asked for more. I would undoubtedly turn to you for any family legal matters in the future and recommend you to friends and family.

Client on Chloë and Julian

‘Thank you’ seems too small to say – I really appreciate your time & kindness in helping me navigate my way through this – your words of wisdom & observations on my journey was validation that I needed to hear. It helped clear, settle my mind & refocus – I slept for the first time in months. I am forever grateful for finding you both – helping me to get out of this marriage to be able to heal, be me again & move on…
