My role

I am a senior associate solicitor in the childcare team specialising in cases where the local authority seeks to remove a child along with disputes between parents in relation to children. I primarily represent the child in these cases and my expertise includes cases involving child abduction, physical harm and injury to children, cases involving foreign jurisdictions, radicalisation and the death of a child.

My experience

I am an experienced childcare solicitor with over 20 years’ experience, having previously set up and managed my own department for 13 years. I am an enthusiastic advocate with strong leadership and relationship-building skills.

I have an extensive caseload of representing children in both public law childcare proceedings and private law proceedings, as well as conducting my own advocacy, including contested hearings, preparation of statements, skeleton arguments and reports. My role involves visiting children and separately representing children assessed to provide direct instructions.

I have been a Member of the Law Society Childcare panel since 2005 and my experience includes complex matters such as radicalisation, suspected inflicted injury, child death, chronic neglect cases involving foreign jurisdiction, contested adoption and sexual abuse.

I am fluent in Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu.
