Paul's Specialisms

More about Paul

Paul has worked tirelessly to facilitate access to justice, delivering straightforward, dependable and relatable legal advice to represent some of the most vulnerable members of the community.

Committed to the highly sensitive and ever changing specialism of child protection, Paul has worked carefully with parents and family members, when the welfare and safety of children are at risk. Paul never loses sight of the fact that these families are facing one of the most distressing and worrying experiences that a family can have – and understands the stress, worry and concerns that come with these type of proceedings. Paul provides an empathic and sensitive approach to difficult situations, being an anchor for family members during turbulent times; and providing non-judgemental assistance and offering a friendly face, focussed support and gentle guidance, which makes all the difference to his clients.

Paul has regularly been instructed by professionals to act on behalf of vulnerable children, from new-born babies to troubled teenagers, with a well recognised ability to connect and work effectively with people using a skillset that has been honed and crafted over 23 years. Paul undoubtedly goes the extra mile to offer exceptional, empathic client care.

As a keen advocate, Paul regularly appears in family courts across South Yorkshire. He identifies and implements pragmatic solutions to difficult stand-offs, but, when needed, couples this with an ability to stand firmly and fairly in Court, allowing clients to feel they have been properly represented, and that their case has been advanced as thoroughly as possible.

Paul is an exemplar legal professional, which was recognised when he was awarded the first ever Sheffield and District Law Society Solicitor of the Year award in 2020, and placing second in the national Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards in 2019, but ultimately, Paul never loses sight of what, to him, is the most important aspect of his work – the welfare, stability, security and effective legal representation of his clients.
