In 2011 I joined the firm on unpaid work experience for 3 months. After successful completion I was offered full time employment, full sponsorship to complete the Legal Practice Course and a training contract.
In September 2015 I was admitted as a Solicitor and continued my development at the firm working on all types of criminal cases from motoring offences through to murder and conspiracies.
I have been mentioned in the Legal 500 for 2019 and 2020 for my work in general crime. This is a great achievement and pushes me to become better each year through continued development and experience.
In 2017 I joined Edward Fitzgerald QC at the Grand Chamber at the European Court of Human Rights, having assisted in the preparation of the UK’s longest running extradition matter.
In 2019 I took a sabbatical from work and travelled to Australia. I worked in criminal law firms there to support myself and learned about their legal system. This was an eye opening experience reminding me how far the UK Justice System has come. Their system works for them, but is not quite yet up to speed with how we practice in the UK.
In 2020 I returned to the firm and continue to regularly appear at the Magistrates Courts as well as continuing my preparation on my Crown Court caseload.
