Specialist areas

Originally an Australian lawyer, Amanda practised family law and criminal defence for five years in Sydney before relocating to London in 2017.  Amanda represented clients in high conflict parenting cases, property divisions and all types of criminal matters. Such cases required her to appear regularly in Sydney metropolitan Courts equivalent to the English County and Crown Courts.

In London, Amanda worked predominantly for local authorities before being called to the Bar in 2020. For 2 ½ years, Amanda was an in-house advocate for Lambeth children’s services legal team. She has experience representing the local authority in cases involving parental alienation, domestic violence, substance misuse, mental health and non-accidental injuries. Amanda has also appeared in highly contested interim, final and fact-finding hearings.

Amanda commenced a shortened pupillage in 2021, under the supervision of Judith Charlton, and has been exposed to a variety of complex public law children’s cases.
