Sue Rands has an exceptional, proven track record in this area of law and has been a member of the Children Panel since 1998.
If authorities become concerned about the safety or wellbeing of a child, they may start a ‘care proceedings’ process, making decisions about welfare and removal of children from carers. This can be confusing and stressful for families.
When a child's involved, it’s absolutely crucial to get the very best legal advice available, so solicitors undergo a rigorous process to become accredited, including demonstrating superior experience, knowledge and best practice in children-related law.
Sue’s re-accreditation follows the recent acceptance of the firm’s Associate Solicitor, Helen Chapman, to the Panel. Along with Chris Evans, also an Associate Solicitor, this means the firm’s Family Law Department has once again been recognised for a mark of excellence and it boasts an impressive number of three Law Society Accredited Children Lawyers, based at its Laneham Street offices, in Scunthorpe.
Sue, who is is also an Advanced Member of the Law Society Family Law Accreditation Scheme and a licensed chaperone for children, summed up the achievement: “My qualifications are evident of the expertise I have in all areas of relationship breakdown. My Children Panel status of over 16 years will give adults and children alike the confidence of knowing their case will be handled by an exemplary expert. I am a mother and stepmother of four girls whose ages range from 10-23 years. I understand the joys and stress of caring for children.”
