Sophie Mitchell, Family Lawyer

Sophie is a popular choice in private and public law children cases. She is a very determined advocate and she exercises excellent negotiation skills. Sophie is often praised for her ability to get to grips with challenging proceedings, offering firm support to her clients during what is often their most difficult life experience.

Recent instructions include, in particular:

  • Appearing on behalf of parents at numerous Finding of Fact hearings in private and public law cases, each of which involved serious allegations of emotional and physical harm to the child, requiring upmost sensitivity;
  • Regular instructions to represent parents in private law matters concerning contact and residence. This has given Sophie a firm understanding of these areas, with an ability to provide sound advice and robust representation
  • Representing parents at interlocutory hearings;
  • Advising before litigation commences, drafting letters and negotiating.



Sophie is now Direct Access Accredited, which means that, where appropriate, she may take on work directly from a client without the need for a solicitor. If a case needs a solicitor, she will be able to help you find a solicitor from St Pauls Chambers’ trusted contacts.
