I am a Director of Family and Childcare Law at Duncan Lewis, having joined the firm in 2013. I qualified as a solicitor in 2009 after completing seats in criminal law, family and childcare law and prison law. I am a police station accredited representative. I am a Recommended Individual in the 2019 edition of The Legal 500 for my family law work.

I specialise in public and private law children matters with significant expertise in the following:
  • International child abduction matters;
  • Forced marriage applications;
  • Female genital mutilation (FGM) applications;
  • Emergency matters such as removal of children and domestic abuse.
Many of my cases are culturally complex cases with international elements. I represent parents, family members and children as parties to applications for child arrangement orders, special guardianship orders, child abduction matters, adoption proceedings and care proceedings to include serious non-accidental injuries where a baby has died. I am regularly instructed on high profile non-accidental injury cases and have been led by both Junior Counsel and Queens Counsel in these cases. I undertake all my own advocacy, where possible to ensure clients are given continuous service.

I regularly attend pro bono surgeries for Women’s Aid, local contact centres and have a strong relationship with victim support and the police. I have represented the police as a party to a forced marriage application. I regularly train professionals in the area of domestic abuse, forced marriages and FGM. I also play a key role in the community by providing career assemblies and workshops at local schools. I was shortlisted for assembly speaker of the year in 2012. I also attend career fairs providing advice to prospective students at the local universities.

I speak fluent Gujarati.
