Darren is a child law specialist who represents parents and children across the whole range of children-related disputes.

Darren specialises in complex cases in all levels of the Family Court, particularly at High Court level and above involving:

  • Disputes as to the cause of catastrophic injuries and/or death of children, particularly cases that may involve complex and ‘cutting-edge’ medical and scientific evidence;
  • Allegations of recent or historic sexual abuse;
  • Allegations of Fabricated or induced illness;
  • Allegations of domestic abuse and coercive and controlling behaviours.

Darren has extensive experience in contentious private law cases involving allegations of parental alienation, intractable contact disputes, child abduction, domestic and international relocation.

Darren also has extensive experience in complex fact-finding hearings concerning allegations of domestic abuse, coercive and controlling behaviour, fabricated illness and sexual abuse.

Darren specialises in representing parents and children in cases involving proven or alleged parental alienation. He is extremely familiar with how such cases should be managed by the court, given the unusual features of these cases that require the court to think ‘out of the box’ to achieve the best result of the child.

Darren is instructed in surrogacy cases most often involving applications for parental orders.

Remote Working

Darren sees many clients remotely and at times outside of the usual working day to try to achieve the minimum disruption to his clients’ working commitments and is often able to arrange client consultations at short notice when urgent matters arise.
