For over 20 years Debbie worked for large law firms and multimillion pound property investment companies in London before moving to the seaside with her children 15 years ago. At this time she took a break from the legal field and in 2001 she completed a diploma in Sports Therapy and Personal Training and then working as a Personal Trainer and Sports Therapist before returning to legal practice.
Debbie joined Heringtons nine years ago working alongside experienced and well respected Denise Longhurst, a senior partner, until Denise retired in April 2018.
Debbie regularly assists people who are trying to negotiate a financial settlement following the sad breakdown of their marriage. Debbie is sensitive and understands how difficult a time it is when a relationship ends.
Debbie deals with initial enquiries from prospective clients and ensures that family cases run smoothly. She often attends court with clients to help allay any anxiety and to ensure they achieve the best outcome possible.
Debbie is an “Ask Me” Ambassador for the Womens Aid charity, and as such is trained to respond to disclosures of domestic abuse and knows where to signpost people for help and support.
Outside of her career Debbie likes to run and walk with her two dogs, Rudy and Lilly. She also takes regular holidays to her second home in Spain.
