Family / London
I am a Director of Family and Childcare at Duncan Lewis and I supervise a large team comprising of child panel members, solicitors, trainees and caseworkers at our Dalston branch in East London and our Barnet branch in North London.
I qualified as a Solicitor in 2003 and became a Law Society accredited children law panel member in 2011. I am recommended as a specialist for my London Family work by the independent legal directory, The Legal 500 UK and I am ranked in Chambers and Partners UK. My case load comprises of a broad range of privately and publicly funded (legal aid) family and childcare matters including:
Care proceedings acting for children, whether through their guardians or direct, and parents;
Private law children disputes;
Domestic violence matters.
I am committed to assisting the most vulnerable and ensuring access to justice. I am Head of the Duncan Lewis’ Pro bono Committee which has received a number of national industry awards in recognition for its excellent work. I have personally won the coveted Jordan’s Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year at the 2016 Family Law Awards. Further, I was commended in the category, Best Contribution by an Individual at the 2017 LawWorks Pro Bono Awards. I run not only a pro bono drop in service at our Dalston branch, but within the team we also have a number of outreach surgeries and partnerships which I have established.
