Janet Martland

Solicitor, Family and Children Law Specialist

I joined the Family Team at Crane & Staples in February 2019.

Since I qualified as a solicitor in 2010, I have specialised in Family and Children Law.

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.

Janet Martland and Attia Hussain both go above and beyond for their clients. They each also look after junior members and assist them with their development. - Legal 500, 2021
