Amanda specialises in children’s matters, regularly instructed to appear for parents, Guardians and local authorities in care matters, and mothers, fathers and other family members in private law children proceedings. She prides herself on being very approachable, a charming negotiator, and a robust advocate for her clients.

Originally an Australian lawyer, Amanda practised family law and criminal defence in Sydney from 2012 – 2017, representing clients in high-conflict children cases, property divisions and all types of criminal matters (drugs, sexual assaults, fraud, arson, robbery and serious violence). Amanda regularly appeared in Sydney metropolitan Courts equivalent to the English County, Crown and High Courts.

After relocating to London in 2017, Amanda worked predominantly for local authorities as an in-house advocate before being called to the Bar in 2020. After the successful completion of a shortened pupillage, Amanda joined chambers in September 2021.

Utilising her dynamic skill set from experience practising in both Sydney and London, Amanda has been instructed in cases involving:

  • Child deaths;
  • Non-accidental injuries;
  • Fabricated illness;
  • Sexual abuse;
  • Domestic violence;
  • Substance misuse;
  • Mental health issues;
  • Neglect; and
  • Intractable conflict.
