I specialise in community care law and public law matters. Working in this field reaches far further than just getting the maximum compensation in a case. I often help my clients to obtain the right care package, to make adaptations to their home and to ensure that they receive the right medical treatment and care packages once they are discharged from hospital rehabilitation.
I use my legal expertise to challenge decisions or delays by public bodies including the NHS and social services through internal complaints procedures, appeals and also through court action.
I have been practicing as a solicitor for 22 years, since graduating from the University of West England.
I’m a Member of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel and Member of APIL.
What my clients say
"Paula was brilliant. I cannot believe that anyone could have done a more professional job."
What the experts say
"I have the highest regard for Paula Barnes. She is an outstanding solicitor with a can do attitude. She is very organised and writes clear letters. She understands clinical matters quickly. If I wanted to take legal action she would be one of my top three choices and I know a lot of solicitors."-
Paula is recognised by Chambers Legal Directory 2014 as a leader in her field.
I am based at our Southampton office but work across the UK.
