Georgia Griffiths successfully represented a mother of a child subjected to controlling and coercive behaviour by the child’s father.

The court heard four allegations against the father including coaching the child into making allegations that they had been sexually abused and on a separate occasion, the child had been harmed whilst being picking up from school.

Other allegations against the father included the father was causing the child emotional harm, with a violent argument between himself and the paternal grandfather in the summer of 2020 being witnessed by the child.

The court found all four allegations proven and was asked by Georgia Griffiths to suspend direct contact between the child and the father until the Local Authority were able to recommend how, if any, contact was to be conducted safely.

Georgia was called to the Bar in 2017 with a Very Competent grade from the Bar Professional Training Course, which she completed at the MMU in Manchester.

Her main practice area is Family law, which she is currently undertaking work in a range of private family matters including Children Act proceedings.
