Andrew Crumpton

Legal director

Legal director in the family team

My role

I qualified as a solicitor in May 2014, joining Anthony Collins in January 2015. I am a legal director 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 appear regularly in all levels of court, from the Magistrates Court through to the High Court and often conduct the advocacy myself

My experience

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 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.
