Profile / Experience

I am a Solicitor in the Family department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors.

I joined Duncan Lewis in July 2016 as a caseworker in the family department at the Hackney office. In January 2017 I began my training contract and completed seats in family, childcare, and international child abduction and adoption before qualifying as a solicitor in January 2019.

I have a particular interest in children work including both private and public law cases. My experience of public law cases includes representing parents - some of which are particularly young - in cases involving chronic neglect, drug and alcohol abuse, mental health concerns including personality disorders, non-accidental injuries, and children beyond parental control including violent and inappropriate sexual behavior.

My focus for private law proceedings involves representing parents in disputes regarding child arrangements, as well as complex matters where the child is joined as a party to the proceedings and represented by a Children's Guardian. I have experience in handling protracted contact disputes, concerns about welfare that have not been addressed by the Local Authority and require further investigation, allegations of physical abuse against the children, and serious domestic violence. I also represent clients who have been victims of domestic abuse and obtain and prepare evidence for Fact Finding Hearings.

I also have experience representing clients in wardship, child abduction (Hague and Non-Hague Convention Countries) and FGM Matters.

Testimonials

  • “Compassion, empathy and a strong sense of understanding continually projects from Emily as she assists us with the emotionally draining situation we are in. I'm quick to pick up on poor practice and feel it is equally as important to highlight best practice. Emily’s demeanour brings comfort and calm to the situation, she is wholly non-judgemental and has the ability to manage the distress we experience by showing she understands how we are feeling, in turn this allows us all to trust her and move forward and focus on our primary goal of keeping our family together. Emily really shines and stands out against the collective legal representatives we have previously experienced as a family, it’s refreshing to feel this way and wanted Emily to know the positive impact her blend of personality and professionalism is having.” – Andy - client, 2019
