Cherie Parnell LL B (UEA)

Cherie Parnell specialises in family law, including all aspects of private law such as complex residence/contact disputes, domestic violence cases, matrimonial finance and public law children matters.  Cherie has conducted numerous international 'permission to remove' cases.


Prior to being called to the Bar, Cherie worked for a firm of solicitors for five years whilst undertaking her degree at the University of East Anglia.  She, therefore, understands the importance of working in partnership with solicitors.


Cherie is able to establish a good rapport with clients whatever their background and can be both understanding and tough. She is known for her determination to achieve the very best for her clients and is passionate about her work.  Cherie is reliable and forthright and can be trusted to work hard for her clients.


Cherie can be instructed by members of the public without a solicitor being involved.  She is able to advise and appear in court via the direct access scheme.


Cherie is a mediator.  She is able to work with couples in mediation to reach agreements that will work for them and their family.  Her extensive knowledge of family law and wide experience equip her to mediate effectively.  She has recently set up a new mediation venture with two other mediators which can be found at www.alphamediation.co.uk.  She is able to arrange appointments outside office hours.
