June Venters QC became the first woman solicitor Queen's Counsel in 2006. This was in recognition of her advocacy skills and experience throughout her career of appearing in all Courts in both family and criminal cases. She remains one of only two women solicitors to have achieved this highly regarded status and places her at the forefront of her profession and a leader in her field.
June is also a practising barrister and is the only woman solicitor QC in England who is both a practising solicitor and barrister. June sits as a recorder in the Crown and Family and County Court, and is also a qualified children arbitrator.
