Grace Brass Senior Associate, Family Law

Experience Profile

Grace is a family law senior associate at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in Cambridge.

She represents clients on a variety of family law issues including divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships and the associated financial settlements and disputes involving cohabitation and child arrangements.

Grace is experienced in cohabitation legal matters, pre and post nuptial agreements, parental responsibility, paternity, injunctions, property ownership disputes (TOLATA claims) and Schedule 1 Children Act claims.

She has solely practiced in family law since qualifying as a solicitor in 2008 and has dealt with complex financial matters.

As a member of Resolution, she is committed to adopting a non-confrontational approach where possible and works to provide proactive, constructive and realistic advice from the start.
