Allan Armbrister was involved in the introduction of the Children Act in the magistrates’ courts and has shown a keen interest in family law ever since.

He appears for all parties in public-law proceedings, but is particularly involved in finding-of-fact hearings dealing with unexplained injuries, serious sexual offences and violence. His criminal law background equips him to approach cases with detailed forensic examination and presentation of the evidence, and a thorough examination of professional and expert witnesses.

“Allan deals with young and vulnerable witnesses with great tact, understanding and firmness.”
