Child sexual abuse/physical and emotional abuse

Kevin represented the children in High Court proceedings where the parents were accused of sexual abuse and child cruelty against their own children. Both parents were represented by leading and junior counsel and the proceedings were strongly contested. In addition to disputing the factual allegations, points of law and procedure were raised on behalf of the parents. On behalf of the children, the Guardian supported the local authority in placing them in care and thereby protecting them from their parents for the remainder of their childhood.

This case particularly illustrates Kevin’s ability to manage difficult and complex cases.
