Trevor has a substantial expertise in all aspects of family law having appeared in both County Courts and the High Court in both private and public law cases for many years.

He has represented clients in both complex care proceedings and adoption cases and he has represented clients in all aspects of private family law from non molestation orders to challenges of paternity and child arrangements.

He prides himself on being able to give any client a clear summary and a fair analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of their case. He has a firm manner in any negotiations and understands the stresses and tensions parents experience when issues about their children ultimately can only be resolved in Court. His personable approach reassures clients and his calm and understanding manner is welcomed by those caught up in what are often rancorous cases.
