In family law, I specialise in cases involving domestic violence not only in relation to securing protection for victims of domestic abuse but also where domestic abuse impacts upon issues concerning the children in that relationship. I also specialise in private law children cases such as residence and contact disputes and also with regard to specific issue orders concerning a child e.g. which school a child should attend and prohibited steps orders e.g. preventing the removal of a child from their carer, their home or the country.
I am a Litigation Executive. I have advised and assisted clients in the area of family law and divorce for several years. I gained considerable experience in family law for 11 years in a previous firm of solicitors in Croydon where I worked before moving to Amphlett Lissimore solicitors where I have continued to gain invaluable experience over the years having remained here since 1998. I have been very fortunate in that I have been permitted to practice in the particular areas of family law which I find most satisfying and rewarding where I feel I have been able to achieve my full potential. Much of my new work is from personal recommendations from previous clients and I receive many referrals from organisations with whom I have established close links with such as local women's refuges.
I have a keen interest in animals, particularly dogs. I enjoy going on long walks in the countryside with my Border Collie dog. I also enjoy going to the theatre and socialising with family and friends.
'I have really appreciated the time and dedication you have put into my case over the past 2 years. The support you have shown for women in this situation has been wonderful.'
'Carole gave me good advice and reacted quickly and effectively. I feel as though I got a very professional service'
I have been a client of Carol Hack for many years after escaping a violent relationship with my small daughter at that time. Carol was representing me regarding two cases, one of them was a divorce from abusive husband and the second one was regarding the contact between my daughter and her father which he was trying to obtain from the court, but it was too dangerous to allow. My cases were very long, complicated and I need to say the court was dealing with the second case in a very chaotic manner and on many occasion making wrong decisions. Considering all the wrong courses of action which happened the lawyer Carol Hack was always helpful, supportive and able to find an optimistic solution to the problem. Her explanations were always very clear and simple to comprehend. I always felt well supported, well informed and in a way well educated about courts terminology as English is my second language. My cases were always being dealt in an efficient way with intelligent approach and precision. While Carol Hack was representing me I always had the assurance that my cases were in” good hands” and I am being seen as a human who needs some legal help not as a bundle of papers which needed to be sort out.
