Carole Spencer

Associate Solicitor

Carole qualified as a solicitor 17 years ago.  She is an Associate Solicitor in our Child Abuse Compensation department.

Child Abuse Compensation

Switalskis Solicitors Ltd
19 Cheapside

Carole represents children and young people in claims in negligence, and under the Human Rights Act 1998, against local authorities and other public bodies.

She also represents adult claimants in historical child abuse claims.


Carole has previously worked in child health care and also has experience as a child care lawyer. The skills she’s developed over a number of years are invaluable when representing children and young people who are negotiating claims relating to their experiences in the care system. Her skills are equally valuable when assisting older clients in claims relating to abuse they suffered as children.


Carole has represented clients in the recent Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) and she is regularly instructed by the Official Solicitor to represent children and young people in proceedings.

 “I found the process to be helpful and informative with good advice….the solicitor was very understanding and honest.  I received more than was discussed and I feel that was down to Carole understanding my story and asking the doctor to re-evaluate what she felt needed amending.”
