Danielle Messenger

Danielle is a Partner and Head of the Family team, with over 15 years’ experience in this field. She specialises in all aspects of family law with particular emphasis on financial arrangements following divorce/dissolution or separation.

Danielle has a wealth of experience in complex financial cases involving middle to high value assets. She is able to adapt to the dynamics of each case and is equally equipped to litigate on such matters or creatively negotiate the terms of settlement. Danielle also has extensive experience in connection with disputes surrounding arrangements for children, such as living arrangements or relocation. Danielle firmly believes that many issues on the breakdown of a relationship can be avoided, if early thought is given to the consequences of separation. She is therefore able to assist in the drafting of Prenuptial and Cohabitation Agreements.

Danielle appreciates that family breakdown is a highly distressing time and offers clear, thorough and practical advice throughout. She acknowledges that family disputes put incredible financial strain on the parties and will always strive to ensure that costs are proportionate to the outcome. Danielle has a very good relationship with her clients, who frequently comment on her exceptional client care.

Danielle is a member of Resolution and strongly abides by the code of practice in dealing with matters in an amicable and non confrontational manner.

Danielle became a Partner at Collins in December 2018, after joining the firm in May 2016. Before joining Collins, Danielle worked for leading regional firms both in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, after qualifying with a regional heavyweight firm in 2002. Danielle studied law at the University of Bristol.
