  • Legal Advice Surgery

    We are happy to announce that Richmond Jewish Community Hub is launching “Kehillah Advice” - an informal advice service for people who can't afford a private legal consultation. It will provide a discussion and guidance regarding any legal issues, suggesting a way forward, possibly involving professional organisations or local authority or Government departments.

    We have 4 experts, who will be there to help you.



    It will be open one Thursday per month, from 11:30 till 2 pm.


    The next Surgery dates are:


    18 April

    16 May

    20 June


    If you are interested, please, sign up for a time slot here http://bit.ly/KehillahAdvice, or on the hard copy at the Shul’s table or call Iryna on +44 (0)7741 801 292 and specify the area of your request, so that we can provide the best expertise.

    Sandie Deitsch

    I retired in 2016 after running my own solicitors practice for over 50 years.


    I trained in London`s West End with a highly respected Jewish solicitor where I received invaluable training in all areas of the law. Immediately after qualifying I set up my own practice in the West End of London. Three years after qualification I moved my practice to Richmond where I continued to practise until I retired.


    The practice was extremely busy, and I covered initially all areas of law with the exception of crime and administration of deceased estates. My client base comprised a wide range of clientele from a well-known German automobile company, foreign royalty several rock-stars and actors to the usual range of people needing legal assistance both domestic and commercial.

    In the early days of practice, I covered litigation divorce and domestic property. As time passed matters became increasingly specialised and in my later years I concentrated on commercial as well as domestic property transactions as well as general business advice.

    Dr. Peter Feldschreiber

    I am dually qualified as a barrister and physician (B.Sc MB.BS LL.B. FFPM, Call 2000 Middle Temple). I specialise in medical and healthcare law including medical products liability, pharmaceutical and medical devices regulatory law, clinical negligence and personal injury and medically related employment litigation.

    I am a General Editor of The Law and Regulation of Medicines (Oxford University Press) and a Consultant Editor for the Volume on Medical Products for Halsburys Laws of England and the Lexis Nexis series on updates of UK and European Law.

    I am retained counsel to a number of solicitors and have experience of international litigation regarding drug induced injury.

    I have a wide ranging advisory practice and had advised companies on the scientific, regulatory and legal frameworks of all phases of medicinal product development for immunological, oncology, neuropsychiatric and cardiac therapeutic areas. I am frequently invited to contribute to discussions on regulatory policy with senior officers in the MHRA and EMA.

    Margaret Garner

    I am a Barrister, having been called to the Bar in 1968. I practised at the Bar for five years in both criminal and commercial law and then moved to an employed role as a legal adviser to an International Investment Bank. For the last 40 years I have been employed variously as Head of Legal, Compliance Officer and General Counsel, in both international & private banking and commercial companies with a proven track record in commercial litigation, company restructuring and transformation. I have specialised in all aspects of finance and banking and have developed a talent for making the most complicated legal matters easy to understand. I have played an instrumental role within organisations providing comprehensive legal advice to Boards of Directors, C Level Executives and key stakeholders. My other areas of expertise include commodity finance, private client advice in respect of wealth and financial management, family law, trusts and employment and the resolution of disputes in all areas of commerce and finance.

    Gill Cashdan

    My professional experience enables me to offer advice in the areas of family and child counselling; also couple and family mediation.

    Over the past 50 years I have worked as a welfare officer in the former Jewish Blind Society; I was a Probation Officer for 15 years, with a particular interest in divorce court welfare and in prison liaison; I was subsequently a Guardian ad Litem, representing children in the Family Court in care and adoption proceedings; and for 29 years I worked at MiD Mediation and Counselling, as a divorce and family mediator and child counsellor.
