Meet the team - Michelle Lewis

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?
Matrimonial/family department.
 
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.
