Profile / Experience

As a Caseworker for the child care department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I assist on a variety of cases representing both parents and guardians. I have worked with a range of vulnerable clients, including those who are illiterate, those who have severe mental health issues and those with different cultural backgrounds. Attending court cases from family courts to the high court, I have a range of experience in this area of law.

As my previous experience concerned children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), I have particular interest in the overlap between the childcare legal process and SEND law, offering pro-bono advice to clients and assisting colleagues through cases with SEND elements.
