Laura has over eight years post qualification experience in family law. Her specialism involves dealing with disputes relating to children. This includes both private law disputes relating to the arrangements for children following separation and also public law cases where the Local Authority are involved with a family and have issued, or are considering issuing, care proceedings.
Additionally, Laura specialises in domestic abuse cases and is regularly involved in obtaining non-molestation orders and occupation orders to help protect victims of domestic abuse.
As a member of the local Domestic Abuse Forum, Laura often provides legal updates at Forum meetings.
She is also an Accredited Family Mediator through the Law Society, authorised to conduct privately funded Mediation Information Assessment Meetings, helping people decide whether or not mediation could resolve their family dispute as an alternative to going to court immediately.
