Experts in dealing with cases relating to children

We have plenty of experience in cases relating to children, particularly cases in which children are or could be taken into the care of the local authority.

All of our solicitors have extensive experience in acting in these difficult circumstances. We are considered to be one of the leading firms of solicitors in the East of England for dealing with children law.

We act for:

  • Children and adults where social and children’s services are involved and where children have been removed from their families.
  • Children who need special long term plans away from home – adoption or special guardianship.
  • Children involved in difficult disputes between their parents.

A wide degree of representation

All of our team are experienced in care proceedings but the team is led by John Futter and Hazel Chapman both of whom have been members of the Law Society’s Children Panel for many years. John and Hazel have been acting for both parents and children within care for over 25 years.

John and Hazel are often asked to represent children in the courts by CAFCASS and others.

We also represent mothers, fathers, grandparents, uncles and aunts in these proceedings.
