Ayisha Robertson


“Ayisha is fantastic! Her friendly and approachable manner puts clients at ease from the get-go. When representing her clients in Court, her thorough and robust advocacy style, continues to showcase her client’s position in a way that is well received by the Judiciary”

Ayisha is a Family Law specialist. Her background in education and MSc in Psychodynamics means her practice lends itself to working with children and vulnerable clients, and she is regularly instructed to represent clients with learning difficulties and recognised psychiatric disorders.

Care Proceedings

Within the field of Care Proceedings, Ayisha specialises in representing guardians and parents. She is regularly instructed on cases involving allegations of chronic neglect, serious and non-accidental injury, substance misuse, mental health and sexual abuse and is regularly instructed on DOLs and non-disclosure applications in the High Court.

Private Law/Child Arrangements

Ayisha is also continually instructed on Private Law cases, representing mothers, fathers and children via their guardians.  These cases often involve allegations of coercive control, international and cultural elements, removal from the jurisdiction and parental alienation.

Ayisha is particularly passionate about ensuring domestic abuse cases are heard and tried fully and properly so the victims receive the full extent of the justice they deserve.  

Direct Access

Ayisha also accepts instructions from lay clients via Direct Access.


Ayisha provides several seminars per year to Solicitor clients and organisations such as Resolution. You can find more information on the seminars that Ayisha has provided, here
