Associate solicitor and member of the Law Society’s Children Panel specialising in family matters.
I represent parents, children and other family members when they find themselves experiencing local authority involvement, or in cases where there is a dispute over living and contact arrangements for children. Whenever possible, I ensure I am at court myself to represent my client to provide them with continuity and a familiar and supportive presence. I regularly appear before the court at all levels, from the lay magistrates to the High Court.
I joined Anthony Collins Solicitors in September 2019 having worked in family law for 10 years. I qualified as a solicitor in December 2015 and became an accredited member of the Law Society’s Children Panel 16 months later in April 2017. I trained and qualified at a central Birmingham law firm specialising in family law and am deeply passionate about representing and supporting those who need my help during the court process. I am experienced in dealing with a very wide range of cases involving parental alienation, international elements, abuse of adults and children of all kinds, and where children have suffered a non-accidental injury or a fabricated illness.

Employment Tribunal rules in favour of claimants in minimum wage case – has the interpretation of “working time” changed?

It is anticipated that as lockdown restrictions ease, and particularly with children and young adults returning to education, cases of meningitis will start to rise.
As we continue to emerge from lockdown measures and deal with local measures and the short and long term economic impact of Covid-19, local authorities will need to re-assess how services will be delivered for years to come.
The Government first announced plans for a shared ownership right to buy in October 2019. At the time the sector raised concerns about the impact the plans would have on housing associations ability to borrow.
