Associate in the family team
I qualified as a solicitor in May 2014, joining Anthony Collins Solicitors in January 2015. I am a solicitor in the children's law/public law care team, representing parents, extended family members and children (via their children's guardian/CAFCASS) in court proceedings.
In July 2019, I became a member of the Law Society Children's Panel, which is a recognised quality standard for practitioners representing children in children law proceedings. I also hold the Children Law Accreditation from The Law Society.
I have experience in a wide variety of cases of differing complexities in all levels of court, from the Magistrates Court through to the High Court. I am able to bring a wealth of experience in all areas of children and family law built up over several years of working in Birmingham and the Black Country.
Alongside the above, I am also a trainee seat manager and a trainee appraiser, helping to develop and mentor junior team members.
