Paralegal, Abuse Department
Lynne Barlow joined the Child Abuse department of QS Abney Garsden solicitors in January of this year. She graduated from Cardiff University in 2005 with LLB Law and Criminology. She then went on to work in Youth Offending for 9 years. In 2012 Lynne returned to her Legal Studies and graduated with a distinction from Staffordshire University in 2014, having studied her LPC on a part time basis over two years, whist working for the Youth Offending Team. At her LPC graduation Lynne won an award for ‘best overall performance’ for a part time student. Lynne has also worked as a respite carer for adults with learning disabilities since 2005 and is a registered ‘Shared Lives’ carer in Staffordshire.
Lynne finds the most rewarding thing about her role at QualitySolictors, the ability to empower survivors of abuse to seek justice for the harm they suffered as a child and feel some resolution. She finds it rewarding when a client has been successful in their claim and has obtained an apology.
