Senior Solicitor Michelle Lewis is part of our Family team in Cosham. We asked the family mediator to tell us a bit more about herself.
Who am I?
Michelle Lewis, Senior Solicitor and Mediator. I am also an Accredited Member of the Family Law Panel.
What do I do?
What can I help you with?
Divorce, dissolution of Civil Partnerships, financial settlements following separation and children matters (excluding public law). I am also a family law mediator.
What do I like most about my job?
I enjoy dealing with clients on a personal yet professional level, building/defending their case tailored to their individual needs. It is also extremely rewarding to see a matter from beginning to end knowing you have advised/helped them through one of the most difficult times of their life having achieved the best possible outcome for them.
What are my hobbies?
My three children! I am not left with a lot of spare time to be honest, but when I do, I enjoy going for a run or doing some hot yoga.
Why did I decide to train to be a solicitor?
I loved reading criminal law at university and initially had desires to be a criminal law barrister. I liked the thought of grilling the ‘bad guy’ under cross examination!
However, on a more serious note, I wanted to pursue a professional career that enabled me to apply a range of my skills. Family law ticked all the boxes.
If I didn’t decide to become a lawyer, what would I have done instead?
An accountant. I thought it might be a little dull despite my love of figures! Next in line was a doctor. I thought that might compromise my desire for a healthy work/life balance.
How can you get in touch with me?
By calling the Cosham office on 02392210170.

Those are the first words that many of my clients say to me. They go on to tell me how worried they are about what will happen to their pets after they die. I tell them, “of course you’re not crazy, I hear it all the time.”More Info
Paying for care in later life is an emotive issue. Stories appear in the press on a weekly basis, often written in terrifying terms, so it is not surprising that more and more people are looking for advice on this very complex area of law. So, what is the truth behind the tabloid myths?More Info
