Hannah's Specialisms

My specialism is care proceedings, advising and supporting parents in public law proceedings. I’m able to provide advice throughout this process, including advocacy.

I qualified as a care solicitor in May 2020.  I have a real satisfaction when supporting people through a process, which is precisely what happens during care proceedings.  These proceedings are such a daunting experience for a lot of parents, that to be able to provide a helping hand and advise the whole way through the procedure is satisfying when you are helping a parent.

I tend to represent parents and alternative carers in care proceedings.  I deliver a great service by being personal to each of my clients.  I always ensure that I am on the end of the phone, as the process can be so frustrating that they need support in terms of how to deal with different situations.  I pride myself on always making myself available to speak to all of my clients.

In my spare time I ride my horse, Walter.  He is an event horse which consists of three stages – dressage, show jumping and a cross country course.  At the weekends I enjoy going out with him to train for these different disciplines ready for the summer season!
