Sana Mushtaq

Sana is a passionate, skilled, tenacious and meticulous advocate.


Her initial practice encompassed only criminal law, undertaking both defence and prosecution work. She then moved to family law, having always had equal interest in this field and now exclusively practices in all areas of public and private childcare law specialising particularly in private law matters involving domestic and sexual abuse, child abuse, intractable child arrangements disputes, internal and external relocation applications and injunction proceedings.


Sana has developed a firm reputation for her forensic advocacy and sound case preparation. She provides tailored advice, robust representation and works to ensure her clients are placed in the best possible position. She is personable, approachable, quickly able to attune to the needs of her clients and commits to client care. She is often specifically requested by both professional and lay clients.


Prior to coming to the Bar, Sana worked as a civil advocate and legal assistant within the housing and family department of councils. Shortly after being called to the Bar, Sana completed an internship at the Islamic Human Rights Commission where she wrote published articles. By way of legal volunteer work, Sana has been a panel list member of the Waltham Forest Youth Offending Team for several years and is a trained volunteer for the National Centre of Domestic Violence.
