                  • Abuse in football and a number of other sports
                  • Abuse within religious institutions, especially the Catholic Church and the Church of England
                  • Abuse in the Scout Association

                  • Abuse in youth clubs
                  • Abuse abroad
                  • Abuse in the family and directly against individuals who have taken advantage of their position of authority

                  He represents clients worldwide and often travels to see clients while also being accessible to them in evenings and on weekends via email and mobile phone.

                  Dino was involved in the reported case of Curtis v Curtis and another [2011] EWCA Civ 1602; [2012] All ER (D) 46 (Jan) where it was held that a charity had unduly influenced Mr Curtis to sign a declaration of trust handing over his home to the charity and that he was therefore entitled to recover his share of the matrimonial home.

                  Dino has appeared in a number of media publications providing his expert opinion and commentary, to include BBC News and the Victoria Derbyshire programme, BBC Radio, ITV, LBC Radio and a number of national and local newspapers to include articles for the Guardian and the Times.  Dino has provided his expert opinion to a number of international media outlets and he also regularly provides external training sessions on child abuse law.

                  He has provided evidence to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse and has been asked to comment extensively upon the Inquiry by a number of national newspapers and other media outlets.

                  He is an Ambassador for the Survivors Trust Wales and the Survivors Trust, both being umbrella charities committed to helping survivors of child abuse.  He conducts a number of charity talks every year and he is also part of the organising group for Abuse Awareness Week that is held annually in February.

                  • "He was, first and foremost, genuinely kind, considerate and understanding along every step of the claim process, he clearly explained every aspect of the claim so we were in no doubt of the process... The service we received was first class."

                    Liam, Child Abuse client's Father

                    Theresa, Child Abuse client’s Mother

                  • Upon embarking on this journey my prerequisite for a lawyer, was someone who possessed bravery, understanding, skill in identifying and using law to their advantage, character, drive, a strong and open ego, compassion and hunger.  You possess all the above and then some!  I feel proud to have such a man represent me, in what was going to be and has turned out to be – the biggest fight of my life. We had a half skeletal corpse of a case when you took it on – with your diligence and skill, we now have flesh, blood, muscles, a heart and strong organs!  I truly thank you for this Dino.  You left no stone unturned.  You have played a significant part in propelling my life, my children’s lives and those who have held me up for the last 27 years.


                  • "From the first time I spoke to you on the phone you were clear, helpful and really professional. I always felt you were available, gave sound advice and whenever you said you would do something you did it. Without you taking on my case I would still be feeling bitter and looking for some sort of unobtainable closure..."
