Amy has worked in the legal sector for 13 years. She is a Director in our Child Abuse Compensation team.

Child Abuse Compensation

Switalskis Solicitors Ltd
19 Cheapside

Amy specialises in child sexual abuse compensation with a particular interest in claims involving child sexual exploitation and grooming. She has been heavily involved supporting victims of the Rotherham and West Yorkshire grooming scandals.

In addition, Amy has represented hundreds of survivors of abuse in South London, particularly in relation to the failings of the London Borough of Lambeth.

Amy is an active member of several related organisations:

  • Law Society Council member for Yorkshire and Humberside
  • Committee member of the Civil Justice Committee of The Law Society
  • Education representative of the Yorkshire Union for Lawyers

Alongside her client work, Amy is the firm’s Training Principal responsible for our Qualifying Solicitors, Solicitor Apprentices and Graduate Solicitor Apprentices.

Amy's accreditations and awards include:

  • Rising Star (Modern Law Awards 2018)
  • Shortlisted for Rising Star (Yorkshire Legal Awards 2021)
  • Lawyer of the Year (Modern law Awards 2023)
  • Rising Star and Key Lawyer in The Legal 500 2023


Amy has a common sense and transparent approach. Survivors of child abuse, understandably, often have difficultly trusting professionals. Amy’s approach is therefore to build a professional relationship with her clients at their own pace.


  • Amy leads on Switalskis’ work in relation to the Lambeth Children’s Home Redress Scheme. Switalskis represents approximately 25% of applicants to the redress scheme, having acted for over 500 survivors of abuse in Lambeth.
  • Amy led on representing 28 survivors of abuse at the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA). Switalskis represented a high number of Core Participants due to the volume of applicants Switalskis represent under the Lambeth Children’s Home Redress Scheme

“The very first-time mum spoke to Amy she noticed how easy she was to talk to and how she felt at ease immediately. Given the circumstances of having to rake up traumatic past events, this alone was a great start to their relationship. Amy also contacted me to explain who she was and how she would be helping mum. I knew from that first conversation that Amy was the right solicitor to help mum with her case.

Throughout the whole process Amy has been compassionate, understanding and communicative. I believe mum would have found this whole process too stressful and may not have had the courage and strength to see it through if it wasn’t for Amy. Amy has been a great support, while maintaining her professionalism with her caring nature. Mum and I can’t thank Amy enough”
