Profile / Experience
I am a Consultant Solicitor in the Childcare Department at Duncan Lewis, based at the New Cross Gate office.
My expertise is in complex Children Law cases (both private and public). I have extensive experience of representing children and guardians. I am often instructed on cases involving complex legal issues as I am well known for my attention to detail and child-focused approach to children cases. I frequently represent Private Law Guardians in Rule 16.4 cases as I am able to effectively assist and propose sensible ways forward in order to defuse otherwise contentious proceedings.
As a member of Resolution I am qualified to undertake publicly funded (legal aid) mediation in both children and financial matters. I am also a Resolution qualified Professional Practice consultant enabling me to train junior mediators. I am a member of the Law Society Children Panel and Association for children (ALC), this means I have demonstrated the required level of competence and specialist knowledge, as defined by the Law Society in all areas of children law and the representation of children.
