Colin was born in Poole and raised locally before attending Exeter University to study Law. After achieving both a Bachelor of Law degree and Legal Practice course pass with merit, he began his professional career with Coles Miller in 1997 as a trainee solicitor. Colin qualified as a solicitor in 1999 and continued to work in legal practice in Poole and Weymouth before joining Coles Miller’s family law team again in December 2006.
Colin’s specialism in family law and dedication to achieving the best outcomes for clients mean that all options for dispute resolution are considered from the outset of any case. This includes often working closely with other non-legal professionals whose services compliment Colin’s own legal expertise and ensure that clients receive not only legal but other non-legal expert knowledge and support. Other professionals Colin works with include Independent Financial Advisors (with specialist knowledge of pensions on divorce and mortgages), Mediators and Family/Life Coaches.
In his spare time, Colin enjoys his time with his wife, 2 young children and a couple of cats. He also often walks through the Dorset countryside and along coastal paths, and visiting Dorset pubs along the way
