I am a Director and Supervisor of Childcare and Family Law at the Birmingham office of Duncan Lewis. I supervise a team of solicitors, trainees and caseworkers all dedicated to providing the best possible service to our clients.

I particularly specialise in public law childcare matters and I have been an Accredited Member of the Law Society Children Panel since 2011, this means I have achieved a high level of competence and knowledge in the area of children law and the representation of children. I have over seventeen years of experience in all aspects of Family and Chilcare Law and I have practiced in the Midlands area throughout my career.

I have a great deal of experience in Childcare matters and I have dealt with a large number of complex matters involving Local Authority care proceedings, including serious non accidental injury, representing both parents and children's Guardians. I continue to represent parents in private law Children Act applications including Child Arrangement Orders, specific issue and prohibited steps order applications. I undertake my own advocacy at court and I have gained a high degree of proficiency in this, providing my client's with a very high level of service and care.

I have represented clients at court at all levels including County Court, High Court and Court of Appeal. I am a Recommended Individual in The Legal 500, 2019 edition for my family law work in the West-Midlands.
