3PB Direct

How much experience do you have in this area?

I had 13 years of experience as a family law solicitor advocate before becoming a barrister. As a Children Panel solicitor in the south of England, I gained lots of experience in the public law field and my experience now exceeds 24 years in practice.

How would you describe your approach to working with clients?

I have a tenacious but pragmatic approach and I’m always prepared to ‘go the extra mile’.

If you hadn’t become a barrister what would you have done instead?

In my spare time I work as a mentor for adults with severe learning difficulties so I think I’d have looked to do this full time.

Legal Expertise

I represent parents, children and Local Authorities in court proceedings, and have represented numerous authorities in the South and West of England.
