Approach and ethos
I approach all cases with a view to achieving the best outcome possible for each client whether a child, parent, family member or a children’s guardian. I provide straightforward, realistic advice based on my knowledge of the law and my 20 years of experience in this field. Ultimately, I aim to work collaboratively with the other advocates on a case, however I am tenacious in the pursuit of a client’s case where required.
What clients say
Your excellent knowledge of the history leading up to this case and your attention to detail have not only helped me but also assisted the Court into understanding the necessity of an Interim Care order and ensured that the right decision was made. You were able to ensure that information shared by other parties, were corrected in order to give a true picture of the circumstances leading to the hearing. Your professionalism and expertise have been very valuable to me. Thank you!
A family court advisor and children’s guardian, Cafcass
Ms Green represented me as the solicitor for the Children’s Guardian in a particularly sensitive children’s matter where there are a variety of placements and parental mental health issues. Ms Green was able to eloquently and effectively advocate our case on behalf of the children to ensure their safeguarding and welfare interests were central to the Court’s focus and decision making. Her sensitive, collaborative and professional approach was exactly what was needed in these difficult circumstances. I feel my instructions were interpreted perfectly and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
Lorraine Green provided an excellent service, not only in legal matters but also assisting in mediating with the parents. This was highly effective in reaching a consent order.

“Lorraine Green is a star at Miles and Partners. She is an experienced and persuasive advocate. I witnessed her cross examine a consultant pediatrician in a broken bones in a baby case, and the Judge commended her on her style and focus. Lorraine’s cross examination was a turning point in the case and made a difference to the outcome for the child.
Lorraine is very respected by her lawyer colleagues and Guardians alike.
Lorraine is a skilled negotiator and has the ability to disarm contentious discussions between entrenched parties. Lorraine has a samurai style in achieving what she is seeking during pre hearing discussions.
Lorraine is a pleasure to deal with and has a good forensic mind when it comes to complex factual evidence.
Due to Lorraine’s experience she is able to take a global view of a case and quickly identifies the appropriate experts and what is fair procedure for all the parties to be able to put their cases at their highest.
I would be happy recommending Lorraine to friends and family.”
