Lauren Richards


I started working at Mander Cruickshank solicitors as a paralegal in August 2013.  I used to specialise in cases involving social services and provide advice and assistance at child protection case conferences and pre proceedings meetings.  I then undertook my Training Contract with Mander Cruickshank, which included a six month intensive period within the Criminal Department.

I am now a Solicitor, and i am currently working within the Criminal Department being directly supervised by the Head of Department.

I am usually the first point of contact for clients who are charged with serious criminal offences. I understand that this can be a very distressing time and I provide help and support to guide clients through this difficult process.
