It is important not to underestimate the emotional impact of medical negligence. I strive to do everything I can to support and guide those personally affected by medical negligence through the legal process, at what is almost always a difficult time, to secure a satisfying outcome.

How can I help you?

I am a first year trainee solicitor at Tees. In September 2017, I started in my first seat in the Commercial Property department in the Bishop’s Stortford office. I work closely with the solicitors in the team, dealing with both companies and individuals, to support and assist in all aspects of the matter. 

I am now in my second seat in our Family team based in our Bishop’s Stortford office. I am always willing to discuss any concerns or queries you may have and can liaise with the solicitor conducting your case to ensure these are efficiently dealt with. 


Delivering what you really need

I am committed to offering excellent client services and understand the importance of being able to speak to someone who knows about your case.

Any form of legal action can be a daunting process and I understand that each client is different. I aim to tailor my approach to ensure that you get the style of service you prefer.


What else should you know?

I originally joined Tees as part of the Clinical Negligence team in April 2013 as Support Team Assistant. In April 2014, I became a Paralegal in the same department.  I was a Paralegal member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and worked closely with the solicitors in the Clinical Negligence department in Cambridge. The Clinical Negligence team have many years of combined experience and their specialisms cover many different types of claim including fatal accidents, birth injuries, psychiatric injuries and delay in diagnosis. 

I graduated from Bangor University with a first class Law degree in 2012. I attained a Distinction in the Legal Practice Course in 2017, studying part time at BPP University in Cambridge, whilst continuing to work at Tees.
