During his first six months of pupillage Sam has been able to gain a broad understanding of care proceedings from interim removal through to final hearing. He has observed a mixture of work, including contested interim removal hearings, IRHs and a final hearing, enabling him to understand the legal issues and complexities which tend to arise with regularity in public law proceedings.

Sam also has experience in private family law matters, including applications for child arrangements orders, occupation orders and non-molestation orders. He is able to fully appreciate the sensitive nature of family law proceedings and has extensive experience of dealing with vulnerable clients through his pro-bono work with Leeds Free Legal Representation.  Sam is now available to accept instructions in all areas of Chambers family practice.
