Position

Charlotte Worsley has been a practitioner in criminal law, for the prosecution or defence, since 2002. Her practice covers the full spectrum of offences with particular specialisms in serious sexual offences and offences relating to children and vulnerable adults (including cases involving child sexual exploitation, abuse of all types and the representation of young defendants.)

Charlotte has particular skill in dealing with vulnerable defendants and witnesses. She is frequently instructed in cases involving the s.28 pre-recorded cross-examination.

She has a clear understanding of issues affecting the crossover between criminal and family jurisdictions. She has often represented clients in both jurisdictions, in cases relating to sexual offences, gross neglect and all types of child abuse.

Charlotte Worsley has been a practitioner in family law since 2002. She handles all aspects of children work, with particular emphasis on public-law proceedings and all aspects of care and adoption proceedings.

Charlotte is often instructed on behalf of local authorities, parents, extended family and children’s guardians. She has extensive experience of proceedings at all levels and has a clear understanding of issues affecting the crossover between criminal and family jurisdictions (often representing clients in both jurisdictions).

She is regularly instructed in complex matters involving non-accidental injuries (including serious fractures and brain injury through shaking); sexual abuse; child sexual exploitation, chronic neglect; physical & mental disabilities; fabricated induced illness, drug & alcohol abuse and forensic computer evidence. She has a specialism in cases concerning extremism and radicalisation.

Charlotte has considerable experience of complex family conflicts within residence and contact cases, including specific-issue orders, domestic abuse cases, and applications involving applications to remove children from the jurisdiction.
