Why did you choose the law?

My father is a lawyer and I had been considering following in those footsteps since I was a young child. As I grew older, the law began to appeal to me more and more as I realised I wanted a career that would be worthy and that could stretch me.

Tell us a bit about how you got here.

After university, where I studied politics and international relations, I decided that I wanted to start a career in the law. I got the opportunity to do a few weeks work experience with the firm and very much enjoyed my time here, so when I heard about a permanent position I couldn’t wait to apply.

What does your day job look like?

I support all three of the solicitors in the family department performing a range of different tasks, as needed. This includes liaising with clients and the courts, preparing court documents and attending court.

What Do You Like to Do Outside of Work? 

I enjoy a range of sports including middle-distance running, tennis and sailing, and my interests include history and English literature.
