Administrative Law or Judicial Review
Mediation or Alternative Dispute Resolution
I initially joined the legal profession as a solicitor in 1999 and practised mainly in the areas of family and child law for the following 12 years. Since qualifying as a barrister in 2011, I have continued to specialise in this field. I am particularly interested in children’s rights and practise in all areas of child and family law including international abduction cases; private and public law cases under the Children (Northern Ireland) Order 1995.
