Prior to qualifying as a solicitor, Frances took some time to get married, have a few children and work as a software trainer in the days when computers were coal-fired. She then worked as a head hunter in the financial sector before getting a divorce. Still en-route to her legal qualification, she re-married and had a few more children. Not only does Frances have many years’ experience as a family lawyer, she also possesses first hand experience of the stress of divorce and of being a single, working parent in a tough world. And in case you think all this has put her off marriage for ever, Frances is pleased to say that she took the plunge again in June 2007. Frances did drive a sensible blue Mini Cooper S but now has something a little more sporty.
