Savannah Laurent represented pro bono a father at the final hearing in private law children proceedings. He successfully secured an order to have contact with his 13-year-old son.
Previously he had not seen his child for several years.
During the course of the proceedings, Savannah also helped her client and his ex-partner to agree practical contact arrangements – despite their strained relationship.
Her instructing solicitor told Savannah:
Thank you so much for helping him get to this point. He said you were brilliant today and he knows he would have really struggled without you… It's so great to have reached a conclusion on this case which started two years ago.
The case was referred to Savannah by Pro Bono Connect.
