Alicia is a Trainee Solicitor, currently in our employment department. She graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in 2013 with a degree in Law and went on to complete her LPC at The University of Law Moorgate in 2014.
Prior to obtaining her position at Pattinson & Brewer, Alicia gained in-depth and extensive experience in Clinical Negligence at another leading Claimant firm.
Alicia joined our firm in September 2015 as a Paralegal, assisting the Head of Clinical Negligence on complex and high value cases, often involving child brain injury. When clients instruct clinical negligence solicitors, they are seeking confirmation that it is not just them who thinks that their medical experience should have gone better. Such experiences are traumatic and can range from the purely emotional (having fully recovered) to the life-long (cerebral palsy).
Alicia feels that the work and charitable contributions she actively pursues assists clients in rebuilding their lives and puts them in touch with groups of people who have had similar experiences which can facilitate their recovery. This is of the utmost importance to Alicia and is something she looks to achieve with every case she is involved with.
Alicia has maintained a keen interest in the challenges facing Claimant firms as well as the healthcare profession as a whole and regularly blogs on topical issues on the Pattinson and Brewer website and Linkedin.
Alicia began her 2-year Training Contract with us in October 2017 and will assist in the Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence and Employment law departments.
Alicia regularly volunteers with the firm’s charity events and has attended a number of fundraisers, charity walks and events within the local community raising awareness for brain and spinal cord injury with Headway and the Spinal Injury Association. Alicia also enjoys the theatre and watching Spurs play, which can be very stressful!
