Profile / Experience

I am a Solicitor specialising in child care law. I have extensive experience in a wide range of family and children matters.

I regularly represent parents in care proceedings brought by the local authority. I am usually instructed by parents facing allegations of neglect, domestic violence, substance misuse and physical chastisement. I have a particular interest in assisting, advising and representing parents who are accused of inflicting serious non-accidental injuries on their children. I have also had extensive experience in helping and representing parents of children with additional and complex needs, such as children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), complex mental health issues, and those that present with gender dysphoria. My work has included representation in relation to Public law outline/pre-proceedings matters and Court proceedings including applications for Care and Supervision Orders; Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards Orders; Emergency Protection Orders; and Special Guardianship Orders.

I have expertise advising and representing vulnerable adults, including those with mental health issues, learning difficulties and disabilities, physical limitations and victims of emotional or physical domestic abuse. I have also represented clients overseas. Where possible, I undertake advocacy for my clients in order to afford them continuity of representation, and I regularly represent clients before magistrates, district judges and circuit judges.

I have advised and represented high profile clients, including a mother in prison seeking to oppose an adoption order in relation to her son.

I also have experience in representing parents in private children matters such as disputes in relation to contact and residence, and injunctions. I have particular interest in assisting clients with issues involving multiple jurisdictions, and I have recently secured the permanent removal of a child from the jurisdiction of England and Wales.

I have also worked with the Duncan Lewis pro-bono clinic for Women's Aid.

When you're going through a difficult situation, it helps knowing that someone else genuinely has your back and wants the best outcome for their client." - Client
