Child Law

We provide legal advice and representation on all aspects of public and private child law proceedings, to clients in Essex, London and throughout the UK.

Our child law solicitors regularly act for children, parents and other family members in contested child care actions brought by local authorities.

Both Gary Stafford and Lorraine Hardy are partners in the Firm and appear as advocates in Courts nationwide. Gary Stafford and Lorraine Hardy commit to undertaking their own advocacy.

Where care proceedings are initiated by the Local Authority we are able to represent free of charge all parents and some family members with funding (non-means tested) provided by the Legal Aid Agency.

Gary Stafford and Lorraine Hardy are members of the Law Society's Children Law Accreditation Scheme, and the Association of Lawyers for Children.
