Profile / Experience
I am a Caseworker in the Childcare Department at Duncan Lewis.
I assist with the daily case progression and client/third party correspondence on a number of childcare matters with a particular focus on representing parents and children when the Local Authority becomes involved with a family. This includes matters in relation to; child protection; Public law outline/pre-proceedings matters and Court proceedings including applications for Care and Supervision Orders; Emergency Protection Orders and Special Guardianship Orders.
I have additional experience in private law matters such as divorce, financial matters, disputes over contact with children, disputes over residence of children and injunctions.
I also frequently assist with the Duncan Lewis pro-bono clinic for Women's Aid.
