Family Care Team
I studied Law at Cardiff University and qualified as a Solicitor in 2010. I achieved The Law Society’s Children Law Accreditation (a member of the Law Society’s Children Panel) in 2014.
Since 2010, I have worked in both private practice and as a Solicitor in-house for a Local Authority. I am an experienced Solicitor and provide advice, assistance and representation to clients in cases involving a variety of children law matters:
Public Law Children Act matters – where the Local Authority have started Court Proceedings or have initiated the Child Protection or Pre-Proceedings Process; and
Private Law Children Act matters – which concern where and with whom a child is to live or who a child is to spend time with as well as other disputes that arise between parents and family members relating to key decisions concerning a child.
I act for parents, grand-parents or the child(ren) either separately or through their Children’s Guardian. I am frequently instructed in complex cases involving suspected non-accidental injury, cases where clients lack capacity and require the Official Solicitor or a Litigation Friend and cases involving international or jurisdictional issues.
I provide clear and concise legal advice at what I appreciate and understand is a difficult and emotional time in people’s lives.
