Zara joined chambers as a pupil in September 2021, with Fergal Allen as her supervisor. In addition, she has spent time with a number of other experienced family practitioners. She is building experience in public and private family law, in which she already has a strong grounding.
Prior to commencing pupillage, Zara was a paralegal at AFG Law, an award-winning solicitor’s firm based in the North West. In the year that she spent at AFG Law, she gained invaluable and extensive experience in all areas of family law. This included public and private children law, domestic violence/personal protection and divorce. Zara worked closely with clients and solicitors, assisting with all elements of case preparation. In that time, she regularly prepared briefs to counsel and drafted court applications, letters of instruction, part 25 applications and various other legal documents. She is adept at conducting detailed and extensive research.
During her legal studies, Zara volunteered at Support Through Court (formerly Personal Support Unit). She provided practical and emotional support to vulnerable clients involved in family and civil litigation. She is extremely approachable and possesses excellent client care abilities.
Zara welcomes instructions in all family matters, including public, private and financial remedy work. Please contact the clerks for further information.
