Clerk Details

Court of Protection

Kellie came to the bar following a 20-year career in Social Work, working in both Children’s and Adult’s services as a Social Worker but also in management roles. She has a particular interest in working with vulnerable clients, including older adults and adults with learning disabilities. She has held roles requiring her to make and oversee applications through the Court of Protection (COP) process on behalf of Local Authorities.

As a barrister, Kellie has undertaken inherent jurisdiction work for those aged under 18, property and affairs and health and welfare related COP applications. Having managed Social Work teams, she is keen to develop her practice in relation to decision-making as to aspects of individuals’ lives such as where clients should live or how they should best be supported within the realms of the Mental Capacity Act 2005.

Kellie’s background leads her to approach cases with sensitivity and a willingness to secure the best outcome for her client. She is skilled at being able to support clients to identify solutions at round table meetings so that matters can where possible be resolved between parties without requiring the intervention of the court.

    "Kellie was extremely personable and immediately put my client at ease. She explained the purpose of the hearing to the client in layman’s terms and made sure the client understood the options available to her. She was well prepared and showed a good knowledge of the case. When we went in to discuss matters with the Respondent, who was a litigant in person, she was extremely calm and showed compassion and empathy which was lovely to see. She was extremely patient with the Respondent but also firm in explaining our client’s position. She put forward our client’s position before the Judge in a well prepared and precise manner and repeated the point of proportionality if we could not reach a final decision and she responded to the Judge’s questions really well.

    She sent me a well prepared note after the hearing and also drafted and filed the Order within a short space of time. I would have absolutely no hesitation in using Kellie again for similar cases as she was a perfect fit for this case." Instructing solicitor, May 2024
