Dexter Bonner LLB (Hons)

Head of Family Department

I found Dexter very helpful and was able to take on board what I wanted and helped me win my case. He put in a lot of work and effort.

Dexter joined Powell & Company Solicitors LLP in March 2012, becoming Head of Family Department and Partner in 2014.

He studied Law at the University of Sheffield and obtained a 2.1, before going on to complete the Legal Practice Course at BPP. In 2015, he became a member of the Children Law Panel, which is the recognised quality standard for practitioners within children law proceedings. He is also a member of the Association of Lawyers for Children and Resolution.

Dexter is an accomplished solicitor advocate, providing comprehensive advice and guidance both in the office and at Court. He specialises in children matters, with experience in a wide range of cases including non-accidental injury and sexual abuse. He has represented vulnerable adults who require the assistance of the Official Solicitor.

He also has experience in representing parents in applications seeking the discharge of Care Orders and revocation of Placement Orders, including applications for contact in care.

Being on the Children Panel, Dexter represents both parents and children in a wide variety of proceedings. He also has extensive experience of representing other family members, such as Grandparents, within Care Proceedings.

He is also a member of Resolution, demonstrating his commitment to managing cases with a non-confrontational approach, and achieving a cost effective and constructive resolution of family disputes.

In his spare time, he enjoys both playing and watching football, and is a season ticket holder with Watford FC. He also enjoys cooking and spending time with family and friends.
