Profile / Experience

I am a Consultant Solicitor within the Childcare department. I have 25 years of PQE and have been a children panel member for 20 years as well as a member of the Association of Lawyers for Children. I previously held the role of director at the Duncan Lewis childcare department for a period of 8 years following which I have continued my Practice as a Consultant Solicitor.

I have in recent years focused my practice on the representation of children in care and private law proceedings. I have experience of representing parents and family members in private and public law as well as children and have also previously spent 8 years working in a local authority which gave me an insight into the processes and procedures.

I have experience in complex proceedings, including non-accidental injury, sexual abuse and deprivation of liberty cases and have undertaken advocacy at all levels of court. I often directly represent older competent children to ensure their voices are heard and their interests represented in court in secure accommodation applications, as well as deprivation of liberty.
