A specialist Solicitor in Child Law representing both parents and children in public and private law proceedings.
I am a Solicitor 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 regularly represent the interests of adults and children in complex proceedings involving issues such as non-accidental injury, physical/emotional/sexual abuse and neglect.
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 allows me to assist vulnerable individuals in a range of different cases in all levels of Court from Lay Magistrates to the High Court.
My notable cases include:
Re X (A Child) (Surrogacy: Time Limit)  EWHC 3135 (Fam)
Birmingham City Council v SK  EWHC 310 (Fam)
