Lady Patten - Law, 1962

Called to the Bar in 1969, Lavender Patten is a former family law barrister who retrained as a mediator working impartially with couples resolved to split. “It’s more amicable and much better for the children, but unfortunately not enough people know that mediation is available to them,” she said.

She is also Patron of the Society for Support of Sick Newborn and Parents.
