My role

I primarily act for children, parents and other family members in public law children proceedings, often involving complex issues of non-accidental injury, neglect and sexual abuse. I carry out adoption and special guardianship work and provide independent representation for children within the court process when contacted by judges or other professionals. I also manage the firm’s legal aid contracts.

 

My experience

I have specialised in children law, primarily cases involving the local authority, for over 30 years and have been a member of the Children Panel since 1988. I also have a Diploma in Child Protection. I headed up the family team at my previous firm where I was also managing partner.
