  • Joanne Soar


    I am an Associate Solicitor in the Family Department here at Brethertons. I am a member of the Law Society Children’s Panel and  I advise on all aspects of Children Law. I primarily practice in the area of Public Law representing both parents and children in Public Law proceedings.

    I have been involved in Public Law cases where the following issues have been significant:

    • Child deaths.
    • Complex Finding of Fact Hearings.
    • Unexplained injuries.
    • Fictitious illness.
    • Sexual abuse.
    • Gang related violence.
    • Radicalisation.

    I started my career in the late 1980’s as a Social Worker qualifying in Birmingham and working in the area of child protection throughout the West Midlands for over 13 years. This background in social work has given me a particular advantage in representing parents and children in Public Law proceedings.
