She is building a specialism in children matters including internal and external relocation. She recently secured a relocation order to Canada, a Change of Name and a Prohibited Steps Order preventing the removal of the child from school without our client’s consent.

La-Toyah successfully secured an order for the shared care of a child. We were strongly opposing an application made to significantly reduce our client’s contact from what was a 50/50 arrangement to alternate weekends.

She successfully secured an order for the immediate return of children after one parent had unlawfully retained the children following contact. La-Toyah had undertaken her own advocacy in these proceedings which ultimately meant saving our client costs.

Her approach is calm and empathetic, although tenacious and determined. La-Toyah will always aim to achieve the best possible outcome for her client by focusing on the issues at hand and keeping clients properly advised and informed throughout.

Where children are involved, she aims to ensure the interests of the child are not lost; she will always remind clients that children are of paramount consideration.

Outside of work La-Toyah is an active member of her church and helps lead the children’s ministry. She  loves to dance, attend classes and will occasionally host her own workshops and classes for adults.
