Rufia's Specialisms

Since beginning my training to be a solicitor over 12 years ago, I wanted to specialise in representing adults and children involved in care proceedings. I am particularly interested in representing children who have social services involvement in their lives. The interference in family life is a serious step and I take my role to help people understand what is happening and represent their interests equally as seriously.

Inspired by classic TV shows, I wanted to be a solicitor from a young age, and qualified as one in 2010. I wanted to stand up for people who did not feel they had a voice.

One of my main goals with clients is to always make sure I explain what is happening as to ensure they understand exactly what is going on. Social services involvement in a family’s life is one of the most stressful and worrying things a person can go through, and the legal process and court process can be daunting and confusing. I always ensure that my client understands what is happening and represent their position to the court accurately and thoroughly.

In my spare time, I like to meet and socialise with friends. I also enjoy reading and of course watching shows on Netflix.
