Rachael’s experience of Public Law proceedings is extensive. She is regularly instructed on behalf of parents, intervenors, local authorities and children’s Guardians. She hopes her manner with lay clients is approachable and straightforward, yet can explain complex and difficult terms in a way that can be understood. She very much values the opportunity to have an integrated working relationship with the professional client. Rachael is happy to be contacted for either telephone or written advice on a case.
Rachael also has a great deal of experience in Private Law matters, particularly those involving intractable contact disputes, national and international relocation and cases where Section 37 of the Children Act 1989 may be applicable. She is also experienced in cases where there are allegations of domestic abuse and control.
Rachael represents clients in injunctive proceedings under the Family Law Act 1989, including where allegations of serious domestic violence or abuse have been made. She has gained much experience of such applications, particularly where those applications are linked to concurrent Children Act 1989 proceedings.
