My role

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.

My experience

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) [2014] EWHC 3135 (Fam)

Birmingham City Council v SK [2016] EWHC 310 (Fam)

My specialisms

  • Complex public law care proceedings
  • Non-accidental injuries to children
  • Private law proceedings (child arrangements)
  • Adoption proceedings
  • Cultural disputes (FMPO, FGM, honour based violence)
Contracts – paying the price for unachievable targets

The Lifeline Project was a well-regarded charity. Failure to carry out the targets within the contracts led the charity into insolvency and resulted in a personal, 7-year disqualification order.
