Having trained at a top boutique London family law firm, predominantly in their Children Department, Sacha qualified in November 2021. She specialises exclusively in children law cases, especially those that have international elements. Sacha subsequently joined Dawson Cornwell’s industry-leading Children Department in February 2023.
Sacha has an Upper Second-Class Honours degree in Classics from Jesus College, Cambridge. Her specialisms included History, Art and Archaeology. As a student, Sacha interned at several divorce and family law firms, including a mini-pupillage, offering her an early insight into matrimonial finance and children disputes.

She then completed her Legal Practice Course part-time over two years, alongside working full-time as a trainee and gained a Distinction of 90%.
