3PB Direct

How much experience do you have in this area?

I qualified as a solicitor in 1994 so have nearly 30 years’ experience of advocacy in family matters. I am a member of the Law Society Children Law Accreditation Scheme.

How would you describe your approach to working with clients?

I’m very pragmatic and down to earth. I am also work to exceptionally high standards and pride myself that judges and other professionals regularly compliment the high standards of my advocacy and papers before court. My understanding of procedure and injunctions is second to none.

Legal Expertise

As the former solicitor and head of the Child Care Department at a well-known local law firm, I already have a prolific reputation as a top children law specialist.

I have represented clients at all stages of private law Children Act disputes throughout my 30-year career and regularly advise parents, extended family members, children and rule 16.4 Children’s Guardians in disputes about living arrangements, contact arrangements, removal from the jurisdiction/relocation and about the exercise of parental responsibility (e.g. education and medical treatment).

I have significant experience conducting finding of fact hearings, final contested hearings and injunctions.

These private law children cases often involve allegedly hostile behaviour of one parent to the other and involving allegations of parental alienation. I’ve undertaken fact finding hearings where marital rape and severe emotional and physical abuse is alleged by one party against the other or abuse is alleged towards the child concerned.

I also regularly represent clients where issues have arisen concerning permanent removal of a child/children from the jurisdiction.

I am a trained mediator and have been a Collaborative Lawyer in the past and am a highly effective negotiator on behalf of my clients.
