Samantha Woolley


Associate in the child care team

My role

I am an associate within the child care team. I am also a member of the Association of Lawyers for Children and a member of the Law Society Children’s panel.

I represent parents, children and other family members within public law proceedings where a local authority is seeking to remove children from the care of their family for a number of reasons.

My experience

I have been a qualified solicitor since March 2010 and joined Anthony Collins Solicitors in January 2011. I have only ever practised in family law and being a family solicitor allows me to represent the most vulnerable people within society at a critical time in their lives.

My specialisms

  • Complex public law proceedings
  • Private law proceedings
  • Special guardianship orders
