I completed an LLB (Hons) Law Degree at the University of Reading followed by the Legal Practice Course at The College of Law. I then trained in Hereford and moved to Kent in 2000, working for another firm until joining Whitehead Monckton in 2004.
I became a Resolution accredited specialist family lawyer in 2006, with particular specialisms in limited asset financial cases and unmarried relationships. I am also keen to promote out of court settlement and to further that aim, I trained as a collaborative lawyer in 2007. I became Chair of Kent Resolution in November 2016.
I have appeared on Radio Kent, commenting on family law issues.
I was nominated for the Kent Law Society Award for Outstanding Achievement in 2017.
What my clients say:
"I want to thank you for all the help you have given me over the years. It was a great comfort to me knowing that I could always rely on you. It meant such a lot."
"I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me. I was in a very dark place when I came to see you but you helped me so much for that I am truly grateful. I hope I will never need you again but if I do, I will make a point of coming to you and I will of course recommend you to my friends. All the best to you and your family."
"I want to thank you for all of your advice, and particularly the sensitivity which you brought to the process. I think you could see from the outset that both (my wife) and I were coming at this from a constructive angle and that we didn't need anything other than coaching, guidance and your professional experience. Allowing us the space to develop the divorce particulars essentially between ourselves meant that we have maintained a level of communication and trust."
"I would like to put on record my sincerest thanks for all your assistance over the past 2 years. Your professionalism and attention to detail have been outstanding and I wish you all the best in your future career."
"I instructed Whitehead Monckton to deal with the sensitive issue of access to my daughter. From start to finish I cannot fault Jonathan Miller and his team for their supreme professionalism and assistance with this very emotional challenge in my life. I was advised about the process every step of the way and despite a stressful experience the outcome was worth the investment. They achieved what I could not. Gaining access back to my beloved daughter which has since made us both so happy. Thank you just does not seem enough."
When out of the office:
I enjoy cycling and am often pedalling up and down the hills of Kent at weekends. I have completed various rides for charity, including Kent Air Ambulance and cycled from London to Paris for Christian Aid.
