I am a Trainee Solicitor based in the Health and Community Care Team at Westgate House. I have worked in the team since 2016 and specialise in working with vulnerable adults.
My main area of work concerns the Court of Protection, and have experience in both health and welfare matters, and property and financial affairs matters before the court. I can also provide advice on arranging and paying for social care, and health and social care complaints. Complimenting this, I also assist the education law team with all aspects of advice for both children and parents struggling to access the provision they are entitled to, with a general focus on children with SEN.
I love the variety of work involved in my job, in particular conducting legal research and working with the team to apply this to individual cases. I regularly travel to meet with clients and am experienced at working with people who have additional support needs, including communication difficulties. I am privileged to be able to use the law to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients, who are often vulnerable and unable to advocate for their own legal rights.
I completed my first degree in Politics with International Relations, and then achieved a Distinction in my Graduate Diploma in Law, which I studied for part-time whilst working at Moore & Tibbits. After being awarded the Dean’s Scholarship by Nottingham Trent University, I am now studying part-time to complete my Legal Practice Course and Masters in Law whilst I continue on the path to becoming a solicitor.
