“Jayne Harrill – I have known Jayne since I was a trainee solicitor and have instructed her regularly over the 18 years since qualification. I have built up an excellent working relationship with Jayne and greatly value her advice, support and assistance. Jayne’s strengths are countless and she has always been available to share her knowledge on any issue that arises on cases where she may or may not be instructed. One of Jayne’s greatest strengths is being able to represent all clients from the most vulnerable to the most difficult in extremely stressful proceedings, dealing with complex legal issues. I have never had negative feedback from a client that was represented by Jayne, no matter the outcome of their case. Jayne has been pupil supervisor to a number of pupils over the years who have gone on to become excellent counsel in their own right and who I also regularly instruct. I am unable to think of any weaknesses for Jayne other than maybe being very busy in her varied roles that I cannot instruct her for every hearing.” Ranjit Jhaghra – Albin & Co Solicitors (2021)

“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.
