About Me

Su is a family law barrister who practises primarily in public law proceedings representing parents and children. This typically includes serious non-accidental injury and sexual abuse cases.
Su also undertakes complex private law cases representing children through their guardian.
Su has particular expertise in acting for difficult and/or vulnerable clients, including those with anger management issues and drug or alcohol problems. She has represented a significant number of clients with learning difficulties and/or mental health issues.
Prior to going to university and to the Bar, Su spent several years in residential social work (in both the voluntary and statutory sectors). Over a period of about ten years, she worked with a number of different client groups including homeless people, young offenders, drug users and people with mental health problems.
