I originally began my legal life in 1996 qualifying as a fellow to the Institute of Legal Executives in 2002 and as a solicitor in 2006. I have over 17 years’ experience working in family law in Dorset.
I currently represent clients in the following types of cases:-
I can assist parents with cases that involve children’s services, where care proceedings have been issued or are being considered; I also provide legal advice to family members or grandparents wishing to care for a child.
I can assist you in a case where there are disputes between parents/extended family members with regards to where a child should live, what contact the child should have with the other party or even to resolve issues around what school the child attends, what medical treatment the child should receive and what name he/she is known by.
Domestic abuse cases ·
I can assist you with applying for a Non-Molestation Order or Occupation Order to protect you and your property, even on an emergency basis. I also represent those that the Application is against.
I am a member of the Law Society’s Children’s Panel. Being on the Panel confirms my specialism in dealing with cases involving children. I am able to accept instructions through a Guardian appointed by the Court to represent a child or by the child directly in proceedings.
The cases I deal with often involve dealing with vulnerable clients or sensitive situations. I pride myself on the sympathetic and straightforward approach I take in dealing with my clients.
I have built up a good reputation in the local area over a number of years and am a proud member of Resolution. I recognise the importance of good communication to resolve issues for the benefit of my clients.
As an experienced child law specialist on the Law Society’s Children’s Panel, I have been appointed as a Visiting Fellow at Bournemouth University. I have been assisting the University in the training of their social workers since 2020. Becoming a Visiting Fellow is continuing my commitment to the student social workers there, giving them an understanding of real life Court scenarios and issues which affect how cases are litigated by the Local Authority. I hold Bournemouth University in high regard, so to be appointed as a Visiting Fellow is very much a privilege, as well as an exciting opportunity to be a part of shaping the social workers of tomorrow.
I continue to take an active part in my local community, having previously been a governor at a local school and taking part in, and sometimes leading, community initiatives in my local area.
I enjoy listening to live music, reading, being an active triathlon supporter (and on one occasion even taking part!) and spending time with family and friends.
"Professional and considerate throughout. A big thank you to Georgina for all her help and guidance through a very difficult and personal time. I remain very grateful."
"On top of the great legal advice and service, any concerns I had regarding my case Mrs Bacon always listened and advised me on the best way to approach situations which has helped massively."
