  • Recommendations

    "I have instructed Annabel to represent children and parents in the County Court and FPC, for findings of fact and at the welfare stage. The cases varied in complexity, from non accidental injury to chronic neglect, drug and alcohol issues and domestic violence. Her approach on all matters is analytical, she is well prepared and informed, imaginative in approach. Annabel has an easy manner with clients, relaxed, professional and constructive. Above all she is a good lawyer who is well respected by the court."
