Profile / Experience
I am a Caseworker in the Family and Child Care department at Duncan Lewis. I am currently based in the Leicester branch but also cover Nottingham, Derby, Northampton and Birmingham. I originally joined the firm in November 2019.
I represent both publicly funded (legal aid) and privately funded clients. On a day to day basis, I deal with highly vulnerable clients including victims of domestic violence, clients who have suffered not only physical abuse but also emotional, psychological and controlling abuse. I also work with clients who suffer from a range of difficulties within proceedings including cognitive and psychological issues.
I have experience in representing clients through proceeding relating to domestic violence regarding Non-Molestation Orders and Occupation Orders. I have experience in representing parents within private family law proceedings to obtain Child Arrangement Orders, Prohibited Steps Orders and Specific Issue Orders.
I also assist in representing parents in care proceedings whose child have been removed from their care for a wide range of issues including drug use, neglect, physical abuse, emotional abuse and non-accidental injuries. I am committed to ensure that parents receive a fair trial and fight for the return of the child.
