Profile / Experience

I am a Solicitor in the Child Care department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I have practised in the Greater London, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire areas and have forged close relationships with local domestic violence organisations throughout these regions.

I specialise in public children law matters and am a member of the Law Society Children Panel. I represent parents, children, and family members in applications for care orders, placement orders, secure accommodation orders and special guardianship orders. I also represent vulnerable clients through the Official Solicitor. I am a highly experienced advocate preferring to conduct my own advocacy to ensure continuity of representation for my clients. My cases often have complex cultural and international elements and involve issues of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, child sexual exploitation, neglect, non-accidental injury, drug and alcohol addiction, domestic abuse, mental illness and parental alienation. I strive to provide an excellent service to my clients and handle their case with sensitivity.
