Partner - Family & Child Law
Mayo & Perkins (now Mayo Wynne Baxter)
I am instructed primarily in Care Proceedings, representing children directly or through their Guardians. I also act for parents and grandparents. I am often instructed by Guardians in private law proceedings where the child requires separate representation.
It is essential to identify issues at an early stage and to prepare a case thoroughly. I have earned a reputation for getting the best team on board where the case demands it to ensure the best possible outcome. As a result, I have been instructed on several high profile cases (see below).
I am acutely aware that many parents who find themselves caught up in care proceedings come from very difficult backgrounds and lack the support of a loving family. Whilst we are lawyers, not social workers or counsellors, it is important to know the person representing your legal interests, or the legal interests of your child, is sensitive to those human issues.
