Meet Anna

Anna graduated from Lancaster University with a B.A. (Hons) in Law, and gained her LPC at BPP Law School, Manchester.  Prior to joining McAlister Family Law, she held roles with the Greater Manchester Police and Slater and Gordon Lawyers and particularly enjoys working for those individuals caught up in the potential minefield of a legal matter.  She uses her knowledge, passion and drive to carry them through their tough spell and bring them out in to brighter days. She has a particular interest in divorce and matrimonial finances, specifically those complex matters that involve properties abroad and/or business interests.

During her training contract, Anna spent six months working with the Court of Protection team, the nature of the work chiming with her desire to protect and fight for the vulnerable person. Anna’s passion for family law grows daily, due to the satisfaction she derives from helping her clients, her appreciation of the work carried out by the professionals she works alongside and the everchanging, fast-paced legal system.

Her sympathetic, kind but entirely pragmatic approach to situations where emotions are running high is much appreciated by her clients. 

What others say

“Anna was so supportive, not only in explaining the law and the process to us, but with the simple things such as returning our calls and keeping us up to date. We didn’t have to chase her once." Satisfied client

“Anna was extremely friendly and supportive throughout a difficult time for me. I would definitely recommend Anna, I couldn’t have got through it without her." Satisfied client

“Extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Anna put me at ease throughout my case, and provided much more support than the amount I expected."  A.B.
