Practice

 

Hannah’s practice covers all areas of children law and Family Law Act 1996 proceedings; she has gained experience in public, private and international children cases. She is quickly building a practice in private law, including cases with an international element and those involving intractable disputes over contact and residence.

 

Hannah has experience of working with vulnerable clients in cases involving domestic violence, mental health issues, addiction and self-harm.  She enjoys representing grandparents and great-grandparents in both public and private law cases of particular sensitivity, including the death of a parent or a parent being unable to care.

 

Prior to commencing pupillage, Hannah volunteered for children’s legal charities and worked with young offenders. She continues to train social workers in giving evidence.
