Katy Morgan

Practice Overview

Katy is a member of our Family@30 team and has excellent working relationships based upon trust and confidence.

When representing local authorities she is fully aware of the internal procedures and decision making protocols that will have an impact upon the timetable for the child. When acting on behalf of parents or extended family members Katy is always sensitive to the needs of all her clients who may be vulnerable. At a very difficult stage in their lives, she provides them with realistic advice whilst ensuring that they feel that their case is being properly advanced.

Katy is conscious of the pressures faced by instructing solicitors upon time and resources. She is always accessible to those instructing her at all stages of the case to discuss matters arising during the course of the proceedings which may serve to reduce time and costs. Following any hearing she ensures that instructing solicitors receive prompt and useful feedback. By adopting this client focused approach she has built a busy practice and regularly receives repeat instructions.
