Position

Ravi Kaur Mahey is a solicitor-advocate and director within the family and child care departments at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. She is recognised as a leading lawyer in her field, having specialised in children law for over 15 years.

Ravi specialises and litigates in all areas of children law, particularly public law cases where she acts for children themselves through their guardians.

She is a keen advocate having represented adults and children in the County and High Court.

Throughout her practice, Ravi is committed to legal aid and to carrying out pro bono work. She has been instrumental in the running of a variety of pro bono clinics, collaborating with Women's Aid, Fathers Groups, MENCAP, and Chrysalis.. She is involved in setting up a national FGM clinic, working alongside FORWARD and Infringement, and frequently delivers training and workshops to various organisations. She was previously invited to advise the judiciary by sitting on the steering group committee to pilot the new Quad Borough system for South London Boroughs.
