Profile / Experience

I am a Solicitor in the Child Care and Family Law Department at Duncan Lewis.


I specialise in children matters, particularly in advising parents when social services are involved with their family as well as representing parents in complex care proceedings. Most of my work involves cases where the Local Authority has concerns about child welfare including:

  • Emergency Protection Orders;
  • Interim Care Order;
  • Care Orders;
  • Supervisions Orders;
  • Special Guardianship Orders; and
  • Forced Marriage Protection Orders.


I am extremely approachable and my friendly nature ensures that I am able to deal with my clients' matters with the utmost empathy, care and sensitivity in order to help them through the various legal processes, whilst minimising the stress and anguish that can follow. I am very client-focused.


I provide a free legal advice surgery within Bedfordshire to assist the local community with their legal issues.


I am fluent in the following languages, Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi and Pothwari.

Testimonials

  • "Thank you for your patience and understanding. Most of all thank you for just being you. You are very kind and warm hearted and made me feel so much at ease." - Client, Mrs M.Z.

  • "I wanted to express my gratitude for your efforts and dedication for my case. It was quite a long and upsetting process and I could never have thought that anyone would stay by my side for this long but you were generous regarding it. I am grateful to you that you took all the stress and sorted everything out for me, your faith, knowledge and determination were something that solves my worries. Thank you so much for everything" - Client, Miss C.A.

  • "Thank you for your very good representation for me over this year for my baby's care proceedings care. It was a very difficult case and your advice, hard work and diligent representations were outstanding. I now have my baby residing with me...thanks largely to you. It would not have been possible without you, you were very supportive and available each step of the way, from court hearings and updating statements to selecting appropriate counsel and barristers and researching latest amendments to the family court law, in particular children's law. You were also very professional in your conduct; generous, considerate, morally and emotionally supportive - that was after I had transferred over from another firm with a lawyer with decades of experience! Your warm, professional and experienced manner was much better than all the other counsels I have had over the past decade and a half." - Client, 2018
