Suzanne joined the Family Law department in 2016 as a Partner after starting her legal career on the South Coast in 2003 when she qualified as a Solicitor.  Since then, she has worked exclusively in family law.

Over her years since qualifying, Suzanne has gained a wealth of experience advising clients on all aspects of family law, including divorce and the subsequent financial claims, private children law matters and cohabitation agreements and disputes.  Suzanne has particular interests in working with Military personnel and their families in light of her own personal connections with the Armed Forces, as well as Court Advocacy work.  Suzanne is proud to have a 100% success rate in removal from jurisdiction cases, for both the applicant wishing to relocate and as the respondent wishing to prevent the removal.  Her pragmatic advice presents the best possible case to the Judge and enables them to make the right decision, whether that be to allow the removal or to prevent it.

Clients often comment on Suzanne's common sense approach and her ability to look objectively at their situation, tailoring her advice accordingly. She recognises the fact that people come to her when they have hit bumps in the road on their life journey, and she gets immense satisfaction from helping people move on from a bad situation through her advice and guidance.  Her manner of working with her clients has led to several clients return to her for second divorces and many clients who have been referred by their partners for whom she has acted previously.

Parker Bullen have provided the most excellent service. After a disappointing experience with another law firm where my divorce proceedings had come to a standstill, I changed to Parker Bullen and received sound advice, swift action and all-encompassing support from my solicitor, resulting in the Decree Absolute including a Pension Sharing Order within a few months. At all times did I feel supported - I cannot recommend Parker Bullen enough. Thank you!

I would like to thank Suzanne Foster and the team at the Andover branch. From the initial phone call with Suzanne, she made me feel like Superwoman and that I could take on the world. She was professional, responded quickly to both calls and emails and she helped by explaining every step of the process in detail. I would certain recommend Parker Bullen and an especially big thank you to Suzanne.

I cannot recommend Parker Bullen Andover enough. From the offset they were professional, responded very quickly to all emails. I had the pleasure of working with Suzanne Foster. She was always available for advice and explained every step of the process in detail, was always honest and listened to my wishes. I would not hesitate to work with Suzanne or anybody at Parker Bullen in the future. A special Thank You to Suzanne for all of your help.

Following her qualification as a Solicitor in 2003, Suzanne worked for various law firms across the South including in Christchurch, Salisbury and Basingstoke.  In addition to her legal qualifications, she is a Resolution Accredited Specialist in Private Children Law and Complex Financial Remedy, priding herself on her supportive and approachable attitude, working hard to achieve the desired outcome as efficiently as possible.

When discussing her time at Parker Bullen to date, Suzanne reflects on the inclusive ethos of the firm and the positive direction the firm is moving in, particularly enjoying the team she works in and being part of the driving strategic force along with her fellow Partners. 

Outside of work, Suzanne is a Squadron Leader in the Royal Air Force Air Cadets and she spends her spare time camping in her VW T2 early bay campervan, Bertie.
