Lesley O'Donnell
Consultant Solicitor

Specialising in Public Law and Children Matters, Lesley acts for children through their guardians throughout South Wales. She has been a member of The Law Society Children Panel since 1998 and has rights of audience in civil matters in The Higher Courts of England and Wales. Since qualifying in 1994 Lesley has worked almost exclusively in the field of public law child care and adoption work but has also undertaken a significant amount of private cases. She has also acted for children through their court appointed guardians and acted for Local Authorities throughout South Wales. Joining Hopkins Law earlier this year we welcome her wide range of experience in child care cases in all tiers of the court system.

Prior to entering the legal profession Lesley was employed as a Lecturer in Law at The Polytechnic of Wales and a tutor in Law at the University of Hull.
