Lee specialises in child protection proceedings, providing confident representation in care, adoption and all forms of private family law applications. He accepts instructions on behalf of local authorities, parents, grandparents and the children’s guardian. Lee has appeared in cases involving:

  • Domestic violence
  • Sexual abuse; current and historic
  • Non accidental injuries
  • Substance misuse
  • Mental health difficulties
  • Involvement of the Official Solicitor
  • Human Rights
  • Applications from long term prisoners

Lee has a particular interest and experience in representing vulnerable clients involved in contested interim applications with a care plan for removal.

He enjoys a collaborative approach to case management and is always willing to be contacted by instructing solicitors to discuss matters out of hours and during weekends.

Lee also accepts instructions in Court of Protection matters.

Lee has a long-standing interest and experience in human rights issues, in particular, those involving the Caribbean. In 2002 and 2010 he lived and worked in Kingston, Jamaica with the Independent Jamaican Council for Human Rights and in 2002 undertook a fact-finding mission to Haiti. Lee continues to have regular contact with Jamaican attorneys and legal education professionals.

Previously, Lee accepted instructions in criminal matters and has a good understanding of the issues that may arise in cases that involve both disciplines.
