Call: 1997


Eve has been based in Birmingham throughout  her career, having completed her pupillage here after qualifying in London.   She was the Deputy Head of the family law team in her last chambers and she is well-known across the circuit as a Family Law Specialist.  Eve has considerable experience in public and private law work including cases with an international element. She regularly appears in complex Children Act proceedings often  involving experts and difficult points of law.

Eve is highly respected for her tenacious approach and her attention to detail and detailed knowledge of the case when acting in court. Eve is also highly regarded for her thorough and detailed preparation coupled with her “approachability” for clients and the ability to inspire their confidence. She has a reputation for being firm with opponents in presentation of her cases yet is respected for her compassion with her (often vulnerable) clients and her practical and pragmatic approach to resolving disputes.

Eve also has valuable judicial experience and sits as a Recorder on the North Eastern Circuit trying both private law and public law children cases.

Eve is rated in the Legal 500 as  being “very experienced in representing vulnerable witnesses”, having a “deep knowledge of law and procedure” and as having “superb advocacy skills and is down to earth”.
