Jenna Bayliss

Solicitor

I am a solicitor in Devonalds Family Department, specialising in children act proceedings.

I specialise in advising and representing parents and grandparents in childcare proceedings together with special guardianship applications, discharge of care orders and contact with a child in care. Furthermore, I represent parents during the public law outline process whereby there is social services involvement and attend such meetings thereafter. I have a passion in childcare law and realise how emotional that time can be where a child is removed and taken into foster care. I realise that this is an extremely upsetting time for families and I am also available to give expert advice but also to manage clients expectations. I am always available to support families throughout the proceedings and always available to speak on the telephone. I will always go above and beyond to do my very best for my client.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, travelling and attending various events and festivals.

I am also a keen crafter by night and love everything to do with creating beautiful items and baking delicious food.

"Outside of work I am married with two young children which keep me very busy. I love crafting and interior design and spend my nights trawling the web for inspiration for my many home projects must to the annoyance of my husband!! I am also involved with the local charity Pontypridd Contact Centre which provides a valuable service for parents and children. I love to cook and love nothing more than catching up on episodes of bake off. Perhaps you will see me on TV at some point!"
