Lucy Baston

Solicitor

Lucy completed her undergraduate degree in Ethics, Philosophy and Religion at the University of Lancaster in 2015. She then went on to complete a Graduate Diploma in Law at the University of Law in 2016.

Immediately after her studies Lucy spent some time working with asylum seekers and victims of human trafficking, submitting applications to the Home Office on their behalf to secure their right to remain in the United Kingdom. Throughout both her work and studies, Lucy has maintained an interest in the role which the law plays in protecting vulnerable members of society.

Lucy began working in the family department at Henry Hyams in 2016, assisting with a caseload of public law children cases. During this experience Lucy worked on a variety of complex and challenging cases. She has worked on cases which have involved issues relating to infant mortality and allegations of forced marriage, some of which appeared before the High Court.

Lucy commenced her Period of Recognised Training with the firm in 2019. During her training, she has gained experience working within a broad range of family law matters whilst also undertaking her Legal Practice Course, which she completed in late 2019. Lucy qualified as a solicitor in early 2021.

Lucy specialises in private law Children Act 1989 cases, particularly where those cases involve allegations of abuse. Lucy regularly assists victims of domestic abuse with applications for protective orders under the Family Law Act 1996. Lucy often undertakes work on an emergency basis for those in need of urgent need of assistance. Lucy undertakes work funded by Legal Aid and also undertakes privately funded work.

In her spare time Lucy is a keen runner and enjoys competing in events, especially off-road races. She also enjoys cycling and has an interest in environmental preservation.
