I represent parents and children in care proceedings in cases involving:
• Neglect
• Allegations of non-accidental injuries
• Allegations of sexual and physical abuse
• Complex medical issues
• Allegations of domestic violence
• Drug and alcohol concerns
• Mental health issues.

Memberships and Positions Held

I am a member of the Law Society’s Children Law Panel, Family Law Panel and Family Law (Advanced) Panel.
I am a member of Resolution and the YRES liaison for Resolution’s Legal Aid Committee.

Outside the office

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, I am an avid reader (particularly crime fiction) and I am a supporter of the basketball team the Newcastle Eagles.
