I am a partner at Morecrofts and head of the family team. I am also a member of the firm’s strategic board.
I specialise in child protection, care proceedings and adoption.
I’m here for you when the local authority is involved with your children, be that at case conference, pre proceedings or court applications.
I firmly believe in the right to family life and my main aim in any case is to achieve the best outcome for every child.
I want to make sure that people always have somewhere they can turn when they need help and that access to justice does not become the domain of the few.
I am married with two children and that reminds me what is important in life. In my spare time I write comedy thrillers to amuse myself – if no one else.
