Hannah Cornish Head of Practice, Family Law

Experience Profile

Hannah is the head of practice in our family department at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in London.

She is a sensitive and skilled family law solicitor who handles cases surrounding divorce, cohabitation, domestic abuse, surrogacy and adoption.

Her particular expertise lies in disputes concerning children which include residence, contact arrangements, international custody disputes and international child abduction.

Hannah stands out from most other family solicitors because she is able to undertake the advocacy for her clients within court proceedings from the very first hearing right through to the last.

Her calm, inquisitorial nature is perfectly suited to the most emotional and complex cases and she promotes a conciliatory and non-confrontational approach. This means she will try and resolve issues amicably and without recourse to the courts.

However if necessary, Hannah is also a confident and experienced court advocate and boasts a robust determination to ensure the best outcome for her clients.
