If it is a family matter you’re in need of legal advice with, the former Leeds graduate is one of those on hand to assist your case.

TBI’s family law offering spans the North East from its Teesside and Tees Valley-based offices, ranging from child arrangements and divorce proceedings to private family matters that an experienced touch.

Melanie enjoys spreading her wisdom and offering advice to clients who are struggling and in need of guidance at very difficult times in their lives. She works predominantly with victims of domestic abuse who require our support and legal assistance in the breakdown of their marriages/relationships.

Melanie is now a graduate of CILEx having previously been an associate, completing her graduation in ‘19. She enjoys decorating, spending most of her spare time covered in paint whilst upcycling furniture – we’re sure Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen would be proud!

“We felt supported throughout by Melanie. She was also very approachable and at the same time very professional”
