Children’s Guardians – Child Care Law Solicitors

We aim to build a good working relationship with all the Guardians we represent and we find that many are happy to seek our representation in other court proceedings.

    How can our child care solicitors help you?

    In accordance with our undertaking to the Law Society our London Child Care Law team will always personally represent the children in care proceedings or other disputes where the child has separate representation unless it is in the child’s best interest for us not to do so. This means that we will conduct our own advocacy wherever possible, although we may instruct counsel to represent the child in highly complex cases.

    We are happy to travel to courts within the greater London area to represent you and may also travel to courts outside this area. We have experience of representing children in especially complex cases involving allegations of serious sexual or physical abuse and neglect and in the specialist Family Drug and Alcohol Court.

    We provide a highly professional service to all of our clients and are happy to be appointed by children’s guardians in private law proceedings where the child is separately represented under rule 9.5 Family Proceedings Rules, as well as in care and supervision proceedings.

    Firmwide

    Highly recommended. Took all of the strain and stress during conveyancing and explained everything clearly and concisely.

    Family & Divorce

    Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.

    Family & Divorce

    Your great patience was much appreciated, your lovely approach to people made me feel like a friend rather than a client- that makes the trauma of divorce easier to get through. Thank you again for everything.

    Child Care

    Despite your busy work schedule, you always made our case at the top of your priority list, you kept us calm and soothed our fears. Without your wonderful advice and your firm’s legal experience, we would not have the outcome we had. I would not hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone who needs a brilliant solicitor.

    Child Care

    I will never forget the feeling when I heard the outcome of the court ordering my children to be returned home. I cannot thank you enough for your assistance. Your legal expertise, professionalism and attention to detail went above and beyond my expectations throughout the course of my case. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

    Child Abduction

    I just wanted to thank you for all the time, effort and meticulous attention to detail regarding my case over the past year or so.  You are always prepared to go the extra mile, working long hours and your ability to recall the smallest and often most significant details amongst a wealth of facts in my highly complex case never ceases to amaze me.  I appreciate all you have done and the manner in which you conducted my case and liaised with me throughout. It was very reassuring to have you on my side.  I do not know what I would have done without you.
