Emma has been a qualified solicitor for over 20 years and brings a great deal of experience to the firm.
Emma specialises in all types of work relating to children, such as public law (i.e. cases where a Local Authority has applied to the courts to have a child taken into care), and private law (i.e. cases involving disputes over children between family members).
Having worked for all parties in such cases, previously representing the Local Authority, children and parents, she brings a particular experience and insight to the work as she can advise parents about how a Local Authority approaches cases and how best to deal with them.
Her experience in these matters not only involves representing parents, children and other family members in care proceedings but she has also represented the Official Solicitor when acting for parents with disabilities.
Emma is a member of the Law Society Children Panel.
When not working, Emma enjoys reading, listening to music and travelling with her family.
