David qualified as a solicitor in 2006 and has specialised in family law since that date. He has significant experience advising clients on various matters relating to family law ranging from parents seeking contact with their children to advising clients in respect of their divorce. David is also a member of the Law Society’s Children Law Accreditation Scheme and as such is a recognised specialists in dealing with the areas of the law related to children.
In 2009 David’s work started to centre around applications made by Local Authorities for a care or supervision order assisting parents and by 2016 he had started to accept instructions from Cafcass (Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) to represent children and other young people in the Family Court. The latter has seen David often represent children following an application by a Local Authority to remove them from their parents care and it is in these areas that his passion lies.
David can also assist with straightforward divorce matters which are not contentious and where the parties are seeking to achieve an amicable agreement.
Throughout his time in private practice David often spoke to potential clients who needed legal representation but who were unable to access the same due to the limits of legal aid. David is keen to assist those who require legal advice but might not be able to afford the costs that other solicitor firms may charge and who have no other means of financing legal advice and representation.
