In care cases he has acted for Local Authorities in multi-day contested hearings for the placement of children. When acting for parents he often receives urgent instructions for contested removals, this requires him to quickly assimilate information and advise clients. He has also acted in hearings for children who have complicated welfare needs. George has appeared in multiple day hearings in front of Magistrates, District Judges, Circuit Judges and has appeared in the High Court. Recently George was led in a 17-day hearing by a senior member of chambers. The case involved cross examination of a child and parties who were litigants in person.
