Nichola has established relationships with Local Authorities across the region, and other support agencies of Domestic Abuse including Women’s Aid, locally funded outreach support teams, Children’s Links, local Police and the Local Authority. For Nichola, helping her clients is more than just providing legal advice;

We have in the past supported women, men and children who have been victims of domestic abuse. Our main role is to provide legal advice and protection for our client’s, but we also work with clients by helping with them restarting their new life and providing them with all the guidance and support that they require.

We can assist our clients by applying to the Court on their behalf for Non-Molestation Orders/ Occupation orders (injunctions/occuptaion orders) against their partners/ former partners. A Non-Molestation Order, (injunction) is an Order which can be used to protect our client and keep their family safe.”

If necessary Nichola and her team can provide immediate protection for children, and also deal with Care Cases which is another specialist area which Nichola deals with.
