I am a Solicitor Advocate in our Litigation Team. 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 proving my high levels of determination. Immediately after qualifying, I 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 valuable asset to any client facing litigation.
I also accept agency work from other law firms in respect of advocacy.

My career highlight to date (despite only being 1 year qualified) 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 live in Redditch, and enjoy spending time with her family, friends and the most important ‘little people’ in her life – my two godchildren who I adore. I also enjoy swimming on a regular basis.
I live by my favourite quote, “if you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life.”
