Sally Smith

Associate Solicitor

Sally has 23 years experience in the legal sector.  She qualified as a solicitor in 2002.

Child Abuse Compensation

Switalskis Solicitors Ltd
19 Cheapside

Sally’s work involves actions against public bodies, such as local authorities and police forces, as well as individual perpetrators.

She deals with a wide range of cases, and has a particular interest and specialism in:

  • Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) cases having represented many of the victims of the Rotherham child sex abuse scandal, as well as similar cases across the country, including West Yorkshire and the North West
  • Actions against local authorities regarding abuse suffered while in children’s homes or foster care
  • Actions in relation to abuse in youth offenders institutions or local authority secure accommodation
  • Cases against the church


Sally has a client centred approach.  In this area of work, it is essential to take the time to allow a client to provide information at their own pace.  It's not unusual for clients to be disclosing very distressing information for the first time, and this needs to be dealt with sensitively.

“It has been nothing but smooth easy sailing with you at the helm, for this I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thanks again for all your advice and help, it has been very much appreciated.”
