Solicitor advocate specialising in criminal, children, family and domestic violence law. Judge First Tier Tribunal Property Chamber.
I am the founder and manager of Caseys Solicitors which was established in 1988. I deal with case work , manage the office ,our legal aid contracts and quality marks. I have had a passion and interest in the Law from about the age of 13. I did my articles with a busy Liverpool City Centre firm and then moved to Somerset which is an area that I love. I undertake Legal Aid work in the areas of Children Law and Criminal Defence work.
This is a very rewarding area of work as you feel that you are truly helping people in times of crisis. I come into contact with my clients at a time when they are deeply afraid, they are overwhelmed by the legal process that they suddenly find themselves in and at a time when they do not know what the future holds. I take a pride in supporting my clients by providing accurate legal analysis and advice. I work with my client to help them understand the situation that they are in.
The Children Law work is particularly rewarding as I am able to provide realistic advice to enable people to parent their children safely which inevitably leads to good positive and happy family relationships in the long term. I am acutely aware of the emotional trauma for people involved in these types of proceedings and aim to be supportive during those very difficult times. I have been a Solicitor since 1982.
I am on the Law Society Children Panel and have been a Court and Police Station Duty Solicitor providing legal advice and assistance and representation in criminal proceedings since 1988.
I live locally with my two daughters and our dogs Milo and Marley.
