Jamal was called to the Bar in 2012 by The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn. He studied law at De Montfort University and undertook the BPTC at Nottingham Law School. Jamal completed a common law pupillage, with an emphasis on Family and Criminal law, at chambers in Peterborough before joining KCH Garden Square in October 2016. Jamal now practises in Family law.
Jamal has developing experience and is instructed primarily in public and private children cases, with a particular focus on all types of multi-day final hearings. He takes instructions from all parties including the most vulnerable of clients (often via the official solicitor) intervenors and also local authorities.
Jamal has become well known for his exceptional client care and attention to detail when reporting back to those instructing. His workload often includes, but is not limited to dealing with a wide range of issues such as neglect, sexual abuse, domestic abuse, non-accidental injury, international child abduction, female genital mutilation, and parental alienation.
In addition to this, many of Jamal’s matters involve international elements and he is always keen to understand cultural sensitives and to highlight cultural differences in parenting. He is often able to bring these matters to the forefront of people’s minds when presenting cases of this nature in court.
Jamal has recently completed the direct access to barristers’ course so he is able to accept instructions on a direct access basis.
Jamal is also keen to expand his practice into ancillary relief, having recently completed an advocacy course in this field.
