I studied Law at the University of the West of England in Bristol, qualifying as a solicitor in July 2015. I joined Porter Dodson in March 2019, having worked in Yeovil for the entirety of my career.
In July 2017, I received my Children Panel Accreditation, allowing me to represent children either directly or through their Children’s Guardian within care and private law proceedings. I regularly represent parents, children and other family members in proceedings that either involve Children’s Social Care or disputes between family members surrounding where a child lives and/or who they spend time with.
I understand that I am usually involved with clients during particularly difficult times in their lives and so strive to ensure that they understand the processes by providing clear, realistic advice and ensuring that they are supported to achieve the best possible outcomes.
I pride myself on undertaking my own court work wherever possible so that clients can be reassured that they are receiving the highest level of representation from the person who knows their case best.
My knowledge of this local community assists me in supporting clients throughout the lifetime of their case.
Outside of work I spend most of my time with family and friends, by the beach if the weather allows or exploring new places (usually dependent on what food is on offer!).
