A first class Masters Graduate of Northumbria University, Claire joined Langleys in 2016 following the achievement of her academic qualifications.
Taking a specific focus on Family Law and Child Law in her studies, Claire went on to join the Langleys Child Law team as a Paralegal where she assists in representing parents in both Care Proceedings and Private Law Children’s Disputes. Additionally, the team also advises victims of domestic violence, helping to obtain protective injunctions.
Describing the most rewarding part of her work, Claire notes ‘gaining the trust of clients who have a natural distrust of professionals, it is a very emotionally contentious area of law because there is nothing more important to people than their children and it is hard to reassure clients as they often assume the worst. It is important that they can trust that we will work hard to give them the best possible chance of achieving their best outcome.’
