Child Protection

We specialise in advising and representing parents, children and other family members in child protection proceedings (known as Care Proceedings).

If social workers are worried about your child’s welfare – because they think your child is being neglected or is at risk of harm – you will need expert legal advice as early as possible to help you understand what is going on and decide how best to deal with the situation, both before and during Court proceedings.

Goodman Ray is recognised as the country’s leading firm in child protection cases. Our accredited specialist lawyers cover all sorts of cases including complex medical cases, cases where the effects of undiagnosed medical conditions are confused with signs of abuse, allegations of physical injury such as shaken baby syndrome, as well as cases involving allegations of sexual and emotional abuse.

We work with all kinds of families in all types of cases. We can take urgent action where needed. We listen carefully to our clients and advise on the practical steps needed. No matter how complicated or difficult the circumstances, our highly experienced team will guide you and be by your side every step of the way.

Legal aid is usually available to help parents get expert advice and representation in child protection cases.

We're an award winning Child Protection Solicitors based in London & Brighton. For further information please contact one of our Child Protection Solicitors.
