I obtained my Law degree with Honours at the University of Essex after which I attended the College of Law where I obtained my Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice with Distinction. In 2018, I gained the accreditation of Solicitor-Advocate (Higher Courts Civil Proceedings)
I trained at Pattinson and Brewer and I hold memberships of The Law Society, Medico-Legal Society, City of Westminster and Holborn Law Society, Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, London Solicitors Litigation Association, and the Solicitors’ Association of Higher Court Advocates. In addition, whilst not practising or a member, I have studied and passed the Chartered Tax Advisors examinations.
Since qualifying I have always acted for Claimants in Clinical Negligence cases. My cases vary in terms of value and complexity and include delay in diagnosing cancer, surgical malpractice, and pressure sore claims. I have a particular interest in consent cases and elderly care claims.
As a clinical negligence solicitor I am motivated from having first-hand experience of seeing how patients, particularly the elderly, can be treated. This drives me to seek answers, ensure the client is treated as a person, not a statistic, and try to obtain any compensation they deserve to help them rebuild their lives.
I enjoy reading and listening to classical music. I am also a prolific tea drinker.
