Eileen has over 40 years of experience in Family Law matters and guides clients through all aspects which need to be sorted when a relationship is breaking down.
She was a former chair of the Law Society’s Family Law committee and has contributed to law reform. She set up Fisher Meredith 37 years ago and was Senior Partner and Head of its Family Department before the merger with Bishop & Sewell where she headed up a large team of dedicated lawyers with a wide range of skills.
Eileen will take on the wives of difficult husbands and those hiding assets or being threatening, the difficult wives of men striving to be fair whilst being treated as cash machines – and everyone in between.
Eileen can judge from experience when a case is suitable for mediation or collaborative law and when it is not. She pursues these processes carefully and at the pace the clients wish to go.
Eileen has a reputation for being firm but fair and her clients refer their friends for years to come.
Eileen originally read Natural Sciences at Cambridge University and then studied post graduate Russian and French. She lived in Mexico for a while and worked for many UN and other organisations in Europe and Africa as a translator/interpretor in Russian, French and Spanish.
Eileen often gives presentations on family law and has lectured, written articles and has starred in many radio programmes including Women’s Hour, MoneyBox and Points of Law.
She has two lovely daughters and can recommend late motherhood. In her spare time, Eileen can be found sailing, riding her horse in the wilds of Wiltshire, reading novels in various languages and walking.
