Before qualifying as a solicitor, Petena was employed as a Police officer for the West Yorkshire Police for 10 years. After 10 years she decided to retrain but wanted to continue to dedicate her time and experiences to helping people rebuild their lives in circumstances which can often be a traumatic time in their lives.
Petena is an experienced Family and matrimonial solicitor with over 12 years experience. Although she practices in all areas of private matters she has particular experience in the financial aspects of separation of both married and unmarried couples following separation.
