Hannah Holdaway BA MSC

Hannah joined Harbour Family Law as an Associate Solicitor in November 2016. Hannah has previously worked at major law firms in Dorset and Gloucestershire since her qualification in 2011, specialising in all areas of private family law, particularly financial settlement and arrangements for children upon separation or divorce. Hannah is keen to work with her clients to understand their priorities and achieve the best outcome for them.

Hannah is trained in the ‘Resolution Together’ method which allows her to act for both parties in a separation or divorce.

Hannah completed a MSc in Psychology at Bristol University in September 2016, focussing on research into reducing conflict within the divorce and separation process. A selection of her work has been published in the Family Law journal, and can be accessed here: https://www.familylaw.co.uk/news_and_comment/the-impact-of-contact-and-living-arrangements-on-a-child-s-psychological-development#.WzUD7i2ZO-o

Hannah is now undertaking a PhD at Bristol University part-time – in addition to acting on behalf of family law clients at Harbour Family Law –  combining aspects of family law and social psychology. Her research focusses on the importance of emotional support, as well as legal advice, during separation and divorce.
