“I regularly instruct Jayne Harrill to represent parents in complex cases where it appears that the parents have no hope of keeping their children or having them returned to their care. Jayne is not only meticulous in her approach but is highly empathetic with my clients and is able to gain and keep their trust. Jayne has been able to achieve positive outcomes for my clients in extremely difficult circumstances, and she is always timely with her responses to my emails and in providing position statements.” Anna Perry – TV Edwards, Solicitors & Advocates LLP (2021)

Jayne has a vast amount of experience in the public law arena including expertise in the most serious and complex cases including non-accidental injury, sexual abuse and FII. She is frequently instructed as a leading junior. Many of her cases involve concurrent criminal proceedings. Jayne is frequently instructed to represent vulnerable clients, both parents and children, in care proceedings and has helped develop the Court of Protection team in chambers. Jayne has recently become Head of Chambers, is a pupil supervisor, and is the chairperson of the charity – Grandparents Plus which is dedicated to supporting kinship carers.
