Leanne joined the firm in March 2018 as a Trainee Legal Executive in the Family Department, having commenced her training within the Family Department at a firm in Middlesbrough.

Leanne completed her part-time Open University law degree with upper second class honours in December 2012, whilst working full-time in the procurement sector for a national convenience store chain. She commenced her career change to the legal sector in 2013 with a firm in Hartlepool, working in family law and defending possession proceedings in relation to rent and mortgage arrears.

Leanne has experience of a broad range of family law matters and provides representation at Court, with a particular interest in publicly funded matters. Leanne is keen to highlight that although there have been changes to the availability of Legal Aid, that public funding is still available in cases of child protection and for victims of domestic abuse. 

In addition to Care Proceedings, Social Services involvement, private law children, and domestic abuse cases, Leanne also deals with private adoption and divorce and financial matters, including cohabitation. She understands that family clients are dealing with major changes to their home and family life and that they need to have faith in their legal representation who are leading them through a difficult time.
