I am a senior associate in the children’s team within the private legal services department. I undertake all aspects of work relating to children law, involving disputes between parents, family members or where a local authority is involved with a child.
I represent the most vulnerable children in our society, who find themselves part of contentious litigation brought by the state as protective measures or amidst disputes between parents and family members. I represent both adults and children in complex proceedings that involve wide-ranging issues such as suspected inflicted injuries, fabricated illness, adoption and physical, emotional and sexual abuse.
I qualified as a solicitor in 2015, having gained invaluable experience in children law for over seven years and joined Anthony Collins in July 2018.
I am an accredited member of the Law Society’s Children Panel and a member of the Association for Lawyers for Children. My experience and role at the firm allow me to assist vulnerable individuals in a range of different cases at all levels of court from lay magistrates to the High Court.
My notable cases include:
N (A Child) (Termination of children’s guardian)  EWFC B16
Birmingham City Council v SK  EWHC 310 (Fam)
Re X (A Child) (Surrogacy: Time Limit)  EWHC 3135 (Fam)
- Complex public law care proceedings
- Non-accidental injuries to children
- Private law proceedings (child arrangements)
- Adoption proceedings
- Cultural disputes (FMPO, FGM, honour based violence)
