Rosina specialises in the law relating to children. She has extensive experience in both public and private law children cases. She is an approachable advocate who works collaboratively with those instructing her to achieve the best outcome for clients.
In public law Rosina acts for local authorities, parents, grandparents, children’s guardians, and separate representation of competent children. Her public law work practice involves cases involving serious injury, sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, drug and alcohol misuse, neglect, forced marriage and honour-based violence, mental health, cases where there are concurrent criminal proceedings, placement of children abroad and adoption.
She deals sensitively with vulnerable clients and in dealing with cases that have cultural and religious considerations. She is skilful and sensitive to client needs across a wide variety of backgrounds.
In private law Rosina is regularly instructed to act for Rule 16.4 Guardians often in difficult, high conflict and intractable cases. These cases often involve allegations of serious abuse and hostility/parental alienation, and she has extensive experience undertaking fact finding hearings.
Rosina acts for parents, grandparents, and carers in relation to all aspects of private law children cases. Her international children law work involves child abduction, Hague and Non-Hague cases and proposed relocation from the jurisdiction. Rosina also undertakes work in relation to family law act injunctions and domestic abuse.
