Jo Gibson


As a Paralegal in the Care Department, I specialise in range of care matters from Social Services Involvement, attending Case Conferences and pre-proceedings meetings, as well as providing assistance to the care solicitors with Care Proceedings and the representation of a child/children through a CAFCASS Guardian in disputes between parents.

I completed my Law Degree in 2002 and have been working in the area of care and family law since 2003.  I joined Mander Cruickshank in 2016, having previously worked for the Local Authority dealing with child protection cases for 12 years.

I have extensive knowledge of this very sensitive area of law and understand the importance of dealing with matters delicately and with sensitivity.
