I am Solicitor based in the child care department of Morecrofts.
I qualified in July 2009 and I joined the firm in August 2014. I became an accredited member of the Law Society’s Children Law Panel on 1st June 2015.
I specialise predominantly in children act disputes, both public and private law and multi party proceedings including complex child care issues.
I represent parents, children and prospective special guardians in public and private law proceedings involving physical, emotional and sexual abuse, drug, alcohol and mental health issues. I have also represented parents in proceedings involving the complex international element of relocation and long term placement out of the jurisdiction.

Testimonials for Rhea
“Rhea has successfully brought this matter to a satisfactory conclusion and has been professional and considered throughout.
My family and I are extremely grateful for her handling of this extremely difficult situation, involving our little boy and could not have asked for a better representative. Rhea’s conduct was proactive in both her advocacy and her advice to us. Nothing was too much and she ensured that we were kept informed at every stage of the case.
We will of course recommend both Rhea and your firm to anyone requiring the services provided by your firm”.
