Linda joined the Bury and Walkers’ family team in March 2013 but has over 30 years of experience in dealing with all types of Family Law cases. However, for the past 15 years she has concentrated mainly on cases involving children, particularly those where Social Services are involved.
Linda has been a member of the Law Society’s Children Law Accreditation Scheme (previously known as the Law Society’s Children Panel) since 1997 and she regularly acts for parents and other family members involved in court proceedings as well as for children who are the subject of court cases, either by acting for them directly or through a Children’s Guardian.
During her career, Linda has dealt with many difficult and complex cases involving allegations of injuries to children, neglect and other harm. Some of the cases have been reported in national law reports and have established new guidelines for future cases involving children.
Linda is also a trained mediator in respect of children disputes and financial matters on separation and divorce and is a long-standing member of Resolution, an organisation which actively promotes the resolution of disputes in an amicable way.
