Why did you choose the law?

I chose to become a lawyer out of a desire to help people and do something that challenges me every day.

Tell us a bit about how you got here…

I studied part time for 7 years whilst working full time, giving me 9 years experience of working within a legal environment before qualification, and hopefully proving my high levels of determination. Immediately after qualifying, I decided to set myself a further challenge and qualified as a Solicitor Advocate within 2 months. This enables me to provide a “cradle to grave” service for all my clients, making me a good asset to any client facing litigation.

What does your day job look like?

I am now a Solicitor Advocate in our Litigation Team. My areas of expertise are as follows –

  • Contract disputes
  • Consumer disputes
  • Company/Partnership disputes
  • Neighbour/Boundary disputes
  • Property disputes
  • Advising schools in relation to the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and Equality Act 2010
  • Eviction of trespassers (travellers) on private and council land
  • Landlord and tenant possession proceedings
  • Commercial property disputes
  • Personal injury claims
  • Clinical negligence claims
  • Injunctions – harassment and nuisance
  • Acting for companies in respect of winding up proceedings.

I also accept agency work from other law firms in respect of advocacy.

My career highlight to date (despite only being 1 year qualified at the time) was winning a multi-track Claim in respect of flooding, boundary and harassment issues between two farmers on agricultural land. This involved a 6 day trial in the High Court and 75% of my clients’ costs were successfully awarded.

I was also proud to recently be named as a finalist at the Warwickshire Law Society Awards and was highly commended in Coventry and Warwickshire Young Professional Awards 2018.

I am a member of the Leadership Team of Coventry & Warwickshire First’s ‘Young Professionals’.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I live in Redditch, and enjoy spending time with family, friends, the most important ‘little people’ in my life – my two godchildren and also my chocolate Labrador puppy, Beau. I enjoy travelling to experience different places and cultures – my favourite to date being the Maldives!

I live by my favourite quote, “if you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life.”

Friendly, professional and kept well informed via mail and email throughout. Advice given that we trust and are grateful for.
