Charlene's Specialisms

More about Charlene

I qualified as a solicitor in May 2011. Prior to qualification I gained experienced in my legal assistant roles in two specialist family law firms. I also had pre qualification experience in the field of property law and mortgaging.

I now specialise in Care proceedings and Private Law Children Act Proceedings.

I represent parents in situations where social services raise concerns about the care afforded to a child. This includes attendances at Child Protection Conferences and advice throughout the process, attendance at PLO Legal Gateway Meeting and advice throughout the process, and advice full representation during court proceedings, should the Local Authority issue an application to commence care proceedings.

I also advise and assist family members other than the parents on matters such as being approved as kinship carers and applying for a Special Guardianship Order.

I advise parents and grandparents in disputes concerning where a child lives and having contact with a child/grandparent that they do not live with. I advise on applications where there are concerns about removal of a child from the jurisdiction.

In my spare time I enjoy reading and spending time with family.
