About Farzana Tai
Following her call to the Bar in July 2003 by the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple, Farzana was employed as a Legal Advisor in the Magistrates’ Court. Farzana joined Chambers coming from a South Eastern set where she initially had a common law practice that progressed to predominantly family work.
Since becoming a member of Parklane Plowden, Farzana has practiced in exclusively family law. Farzana accepts instructions in all aspects of family including public proceedings, private children law, injunctions as well as ancillary relief. Her wide experience has resulted in her being proficient in cases crossing practice areas.
Farzana’s experience as a Magistrates Court Legal Advioer provided her with invaluable exposure to and insight of criminal and family cases, and experience of sitting with District Judges. This together with her former experience in practicing criminal law makes Farzana particularly au fait with trial skills, especially cross-examination although her advocacy is experienced at all levels. Farzana has a very approachable and friendly manner and is known for skilfully managing vulnerable and demanding clients and highly emotional situations.
Farzana is fluent in Gujerati, and is also able to converse in Urdu, Hindi and basic Punjabi, which assists her in conducting cases for clients with language barriers.
