I have been in full time practice since 1989, and my professional commitments are divided approximately 50/50 between family work relating to children, and cases in the Court of Protection.

In children work I represent parents in private law disputes, as well as Children's Guardians. I have particular expertise in cases involving older children with learning disabilities or mental disorders.

In the Court of Protection I represent family members as well as Local Authorities and the Official Solicitor. For many years I have been recognised as a leading junior in Court of Protection work in "Chambers & Partners" (Band 1), and I specialise in health and welfare disputes and in cases where urgent medical decisions have to be made.

I travel extensively throughout England and Wales and, subject to the demands of existing cases, I am happy to advise and represent clients at short notice. I am very well supported by a strong clerking team at 1GC Family Law.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch for an informal discussion about your case, via this Portal in the first instance.
