Yolanda specialises in family law with a particular emphasis on cases involving children. She has huge experience in care proceedings as well as private law children’s cases. Domestic violence matters are also a regular part of her practice. Yolanda’s career differs from most barristers. She qualified to come to the bar as a mature student having spent her early working life employed by one London’s leading solicitors firms. Because of that she has a better insight and understanding than most of the particular challenges that routinely crop up for solicitor’s as well as barristers.
Yolanda’s particular strength and skill is in dealing with difficult clients with tact, care and empathy. She is regularly instructed on cases involving vulnerable clients and those with learning difficulties because of her sympathetic approach.
She has significant experience of international child abduction cases and Hague Convention matters. Yolanda also has been involved in relocation cases, one in particular involving the issue of children being relocated to the Turks & Caicos Islands.
