Emma specialises in complex care proceedings dealing with allegations of non accidental injury, murder and sexual abuse. She has represented both parents and children in cases involving disputed medical treatment and fabricated illness where social services have intervened.

She has acted in several cases where a change of residence is sought in these circumstances. Emma also advises parents in relation to child arrangements orders, formerly known as residence and contact disputes, she specialises in cases where there are allegations of physical and emotional abuse and coercive control, parental alienation, implacable hostility and emotional harm.
