I have significant experience in dealing with cases in all public children matters and represent parents in the following proceedings:
  • Applications for Care Orders & Placement Orders;
  • Applications for Supervision Orders;
  • Applications for Emergency Protection Orders;
  • Applications for Special Guardianship Orders;
  • Adoption Orders;
I also specialise in dealing with all private law children matters and represent parents in the following proceedings:
  • Application for Child Arrangements Orders for Residence & Contact
  • Specific Issue Orders
  • Prohibited Steps Orders
A significant part of my caseload is representing clients on family law matters with issues of domestic violence which covers non molestation orders and occupation orders.

I am experienced in working and assisting clients in matters with an international element such as child abduction cases under the Hague Convention. I also deal with vulnerable clients including those with substance misuse, those suffering from complex psychological issues and victims of domestic abuse.

As part of my role I have also assisted clients through the Civil Legal Advice Scheme and I am keen member of the Duncan Lewis Pro Bono Committee.

I can speak and communicate in Bulgarian for those who struggle with English.
