Alexa Storey-Rea

Year of Call 1990

Professional Practice

Alexa practises in the field of children law, the majority of public law cases involving allegations of serious non-accidental injury, homicide or sexual abuse with a particular interest in the exploration in Court of scientific and medical issues taking place at the highest levels. Her private law children practice involves complex, often sensitive competing interests. In both these areas Alexa has had experience of dealing with those matters that attract public interest. She has extensive experience in dealing with clients with learning difficulties or other vulnerabilities, negotiating a way through complex proceedings in a manner they can follow most easily. Those cases and others often involve issues of the application of the Human Rights Act. Increasingly there has to be a particular awareness of disclosure issues and the effect on all aspects of the client’s Court appearances, this is a particular interest.

  • Recommendations

    “I have instructed Alexa on a number of Private Law Children Act matters over the last two years. Alexa is incredibly approachable and my clients like her sensible and practical advice which is essential when dealing with Children Act proceedings. As an instructing Solicitor I have found her to be incredibly supportive and she instantly pinpoints the issues. I like her commonsense approach and she is also somebody who thinks outside of the box. If I had to describe Alexa in a sentence I would say ‘She is like a breath of fresh air’.”
