Meet Nina

After she graduated from the University of Bristol with an M.A. (Hons) in Classics and Ancient History, Nina undertook roles in a variety of industries, including property development and hospitality, but ultimately, her passion for children law encouraged her to join the legal world.   

Her role as a paralegal on the Local Authorities team involves working on matters such as care proceedings, adoption, and residence and contact disputes.  She meets every challenge with enthusiasm, interest and determination.

What others say

"Can I thank you for the tremendous amount of hard work that you have put into LCC v [Confidential].  I have been involved in family law for 25 years and I found the case to be challenging and at times immensely frustrating.  I can only admire the way you have preserved and helped to drive it forward.  We got there in there end!" Barrister instructed on High Court Care Proceedings case

"I have said it before but I will say it again – you have done a superb job of managing this case in the face, at times, of unrelenting demands from those in the south. Even old timers like me have learnt a lot from this case. Very well done." Solicitor for the Guardian on High Court Care Proceedings case
