We are delighted to announce that a member of our family team, Louise McCallum, is one of only two juniors on the North Eastern Circuit to have been appointed a Recorder dealing with family matters in the latest list signed by Her Majesty the Queen. It is understood that the number of applications ran into the hundreds of which only twenty seven nationally were appointed. The achievement is even greater for Louise as she has only recently returned from maternity leave.
Louise joined chambers in 1999 and has built up a specialist family practice in public law, forced marriage cases, private law and ancillary relief. She is also an author and contributor to specialist books on these topics. The Legal 500 describes her as ‘Exceptionally well prepared and puts her arguments strongly but in a calm and polite way.’
