Court Reports

I have a reputation in the south London courts as someone who produces analytical, comprehensive assessments in a short timeframe, to help Local Authorities comply with the requirements of the new public law outline.

I try to include 'agreements' in my reports rather than just 'recommendations', since actions are more likely to happen if the family and social work department have 'bought in' to my suggestions in the course of the assessment.

I mostly produce work for cases in court but also for cases in pre-proceedings or cases that are 'drifting' under child protection plans.

I can provide bespoke assessments and analyses on request, but my main pieces of work are:

Parenting Assessments

Special Guardianship Reports

Risk Assessments and Private Proceedings
