Sharon specialises in all aspects of family law relating to children whether in the private law field or in public law proceedings which results in her being instructed in the most complex of cases within each area. 

Within the public law arena, she is instructed in cases, whether acting for the local authority, parents or guardian involving vulnerable clients, serious allegations of abuse and non-accidental injury with complex medical issues; and exceptional cases involving honour killing, allegations of radicalisation, and wardship. 

Within the private law field, she has extensive experience of child arrangement disputes, and is regularly instructed in intractable cases, leave to remove applications as well as having significant experience being instructed on behalf of the child in rule 16 cases. A number of her cases have significant media interest.
